Drop Everything…7th Annual Collingwood Ski Movie night at The Gayety, Saturday Nov. 25, 2017 – Doors open 6.30pm


The 7th ANNUAL COLLINGWOOD SKI MOVIE NIGHT at the Historic Gayety Theatre is screening  DROP EVERYTHING — the new feature from Matchstick Productions in support of the Collingwood General and Marine Hospital Foundation.   

Matchstick Productions – the powerhouse that brought you award-winning classics like CLAIM,
THE WAY I SEE IT, and DAYS OF MY YOUTH – is proud to introduce the funniest, most action-packed ski movie of 2017: DROP EVERYTHING, presented by Under Armour.  Following an artful, narrative-driven 2016 film release, the team at Matchstick took a decidedly more lighthearted approach that returns the focus to the featured athletes and world-class action.
DROP EVERYTHING features the world’s preeminent freeskiers along with quick-hitting comedy, stunning locations, a potent soundtrack, and stellar cinematography.  DROP EVERYTHING is an unexpected, fun-filled adventure through the world of freeskiing.

Volunteer organizers Andrea Baker-Nash and Kevin Nash enthusiastically shared the group’s reasons for hosting the party: “Collingwood is the skiing capital of Ontario.  The Historic Gayety Theatre is the perfect venue with the perfect vibe.  And what better cause unites us than the Collingwood Hospital?!”

Kevin Nash continued “We have a fantastic group of volunteers putting on an exciting, full evening.  The Unofficial Start of Winter is far more than just a movie night – it is our pre-season reunion and a fundraiser for a common concern.”

On Saturday November 25th the Historic Gayety Theater’s doors open at 6:30pm.  Come early. Share a beer or glass of wine with your friends.  At 8:00 we will show a couple of special ‘shorts’ to get things rocking. During a short intermission we share great door prizes from our excellent supporters.  Then it’s on to Drop Everything  This year’s film is 2190% better!     

Organizers are looking forward to their Seventh consecutive SOLD OUT event. Act quickly: Tickets are $25.00 each, general admission and available in person starting November 4th at Kamikaze Bikes on First Street Collingwood or online at https://cgmhf.com/events/
