Cineplex Theatres locations across the country will celebrate the legacy of one of the most legendary rock bands from Canada with The Tragically Hip: The Ultimate Double Feature.
The documentaries Long Time Running and A National Celebration will tour Canada in a limited capacity starting on Sept. 18. Two theatres on Vancouver Island — Galaxy Cinemas in Nanaimo and SilverCity Victoria — will show the double-feature at 3 p.m. on Sept. 20.
Long Time Running, which follows the band as it crosses Canada on its final tour, was co-directed by Victoria-raised filmmaker Jennifer Baichwal, while A National Celebration — which was broadcast to a record-breaking CBC audience of 11.7 million people in 2016 — captured the band’s last concert prior the death of frontman Gord Downie.
Tickets for the limited engagement are on sale now at cineplex.com for $19.95 (adult), $18.95 (senior) and $12.95 (child).
To commemorate the occasion, exclusive merchandise created for the double-feature tour is now available for purchase at thehipgiftshop.com.
