Summer Stock film still

Each month, Melanie Friesen invites a distinguished guest to Vancity Theatre’s Cinema Salon, in order to present his/her favourite film. After the screening, both audience and speaker have the opportunity to engage over drinks and snacks in the Vancity lounge. This month’s film is Charles Walters’ Summer Stock.

When Abigail (Gloria DeHaven) invites a theatre troupe to rehearse in her sister’s barn, she fails to mention it to Jane (Judy Garland), who is not best pleased. City slickers and country cousins collide as the actors agree to help out around the farm, but the right people fall in love and the musical numbers are unmissable in this 1950 classic.


This month’s Cinema Salon is hosted by Nicholas Scapillati, Executive Director of FarmFolk CityFolk. This special evening will celebrate FarmFolk CityFolk’s 20th anniversary.

For over 20 years, Nicholas Scapillati has been dedicated to bringing communities together to tackle some of today’s most challenging issues: environmental conservation, food security, and a sustainable economy.

Nicholas serves as Executive Director of FarmFolk CityFolk, has worked at the David Suzuki Foundation, and has extensive experience working with First Nations traveling to BC’s north coast to protect the iconic Great Bear Rainforest. He’s additionally worked closely with the Musqueam First Nation for over 18 years helping protect and restore their traditional lands. Nicholas recently ran as a candidate in BC’s provincial election for the NDP.
