Movies on the Rise: Pride Edition

The Rise, St. Patrick's Island

Experience outdoor cinema like never before at The Rise; our 9-metre high natural amphitheatre at the center of the island. We’ve extended this years Movie series by one week to celebrate Calgary Pride Week! A special outdoor screening of the cult classic film “Priscilla Queen of the Desert”. Laugh along as 2 drag queens and a transgender woman journey through the Australian Outback.

Please leave your chairs at home, as they won't work on the steep slope of The Rise. Bring a waterproof tarp to sit on instead, and don't forget the bug spray!

If you plan to drive, please note that the St. Patrick's Island parking lot can only be accessed via 12th St Bridge from Inglewood. As always, it is best to access the island by foot, bike, and public transit. There is pedestrian access from East Village and Bridgeland via the George C. King Bridge.
