Morning Kids!

 

Well, since Love Month starts tomorrow, it’s probably a great time to point out one of the new filter categories on the Calendar View page – Date Night!  Hopefully, this will make it a bit easier to plan out which Bermuda activities and events are best to go to with your special someone, but I’d love your feedback.  The filter categories can be found to the right of the calendar, if viewing on a desktop, or below it if viewing on a mobile device.

Back by popular demand, BUEI Screens invites you to a sixth screening of Viceroy’s House on Thursday, February 1st.

New nations are rarely born in peace… India, 1947: Lord Mountbatten (Downton Abbey’s Hugh Bonneville) is dispatched, along with his wife Edwina (Gillian Anderson), to New Delhi to oversee the country’s transition from British rule to independence. Taking his place in the resplendent mansion known as the Viceroy’s House, Mountbatten arrives hopeful for a peaceful transference of power. But ending centuries of colonial rule in a country divided by deep religious and cultural differences proves no easy undertaking, setting off a seismic struggle that threatens to tear India apart.  This PG-13 rated drama has a running time of 106 minutes.

The film begins at 7.30pm in BUEI’s Tradewinds Auditorium. Harbourfront are offering a 10% discount (food only) to anyone dining there before or after the event.  Reservations are required.  Please mention the lecture when booking to avail of the discount and note that it cannot be combined with any other special offers. For dinner reservations call 295-4207.

Tickets are $15 each, $12 for students, and are non-refundable within 24 hours of the event.

For more information, or to purchase tickets, contact 294-0204 or visit Oceans Gift Shop at BUEI. Continue reading this post…
