Film Screening: They’re Putting Us Off the Map

Join us for a special Tuesday Night at the Museum on April 23 for a free screening of “They’re Putting us off the Map,” a nostalgic look back at Napanee in the 1960s.

This short film is a portrait of a small Ontario town and its efforts to attract new industries and people. Napanee, a pleasant old town near Lake Ontario, is shrinking when it should be growing, a fact that is cause for concern for civic leaders and many townspeople. Reasons are aired from many points of view and will provide topics for discussion in communities where similar problems exist.

Produced by the National Film Board of Canada for the Canadian Department of Industry (1968).

Film run time: 30 minutes

Time: 7PM (doors open at 6:30PM)

Cost: FREE
