Welcome to another day of sunshine, Victoria!

According to the weather forecast, the sun will be blasting over the city for most of the day.

If you’re looking for something to do, here are 5 things to do in and around Victoria today, Thursday November 10th

Come and See

This acclaimed film is a stunning, senses-shattering plunge into the dehumanizing horrors of war.

As Nazi forces encroach on his small village in Belarus, teenage Flyora eagerly joins the Soviet resistance. Rather than the glory he envisioned, what he finds is a waking nightmare—rendered with an otherworldly intensity by Klimov’s camerawork and expressionistic sound design. Nearly suppressed by Soviet censors, Come and See is perhaps the most visceral, unforgettable antiwar film ever made.

  • When: Thursday, November 10th, showtimes: 4:45 p.m. and 7:20 p.m.
  • Where: Student Union Building – 3800 Finnerty Road, University of Victoria

Blackie And The Rodeo Kings

Blackie, originally formed in 1996, when Colin Linden, Stephen Fearing, and Tom Wilson came together to record what was supposed to be a one-off tribute album to the great Canadian songwriter Willie P. Bennett.

At the time, all three members were deeply committed to burgeoning solo careers that they had no intentions of putting on hold, and had no plans to turn Blackie into an ongoing concern.

Now 25 years later, Blackie and the Rodeo Kings have organically evolved into one of the finest roots-oriented band in North America. Blackie and the Rodeo Kings remains one of Canada’s greatest musical treasures.
