Join us at the Jewel Theatre on Jan. 7, 2019, at 7:30 p.m. for the Canadian movie “The Grizzlies.” Based on a true story, “The Grizzlies” is about determination and resilience. In a small Arctic town struggling with the highest suicide rate in North America, a group of Inuit students’ lives are transformed when they are introduced to the sport of lacrosse. A great movie to start the New Year.
