Written and directed by Will Pascoe, this film explores the past of the Canadian superhero -- from the golden age when millions of children read the tales of Inuit goddess Nelvana of the Northern Lights. to the thrilling days when Canadian superheroes returned to the newsstands with Captain Canuck and Cerebus.   (108 minutes)

8pm | Black Panther 

PG Violence, Not Recommended For Young Children

T'Challa, heir to the hidden but advanced kingdom of Wakanda, must step forward to lead his people into a new future and must confront a challenger from his country's past. (134 minutes)

Enjoy one film for $10 or both for $15. Members to the AGA are Free. This screening is part of the AGA’s programming for the new exhibition for Comic Sans.

Comic Sans focuses on the limitless artistic side of Canadian comics and celebrates a broad range of approaches to storytelling. Some of the stories in Comic Sans are biographical or autobiographical, some are familiar and others have sprung from the imaginations of their creators. Comics don’t need to be constrained within the square frame of a comic panel and the work in this show expands well beyond it and even well beyond the page. Comic Sans is a celebration of the endlessly creative medium of graphic narratives.    

Comic Sans is organized by the Art Gallery of Alberta and curated by Chris Reyns-Chikuma, University of Alberta and Lindsey Sharman, Art Gallery of Alberta.  

This event is open to all; however, please note that Black Panther is rated PG 13.
