OTTAWA, June 9, 2016 /CNW/ - His Excellency the Right Honourable David Johnston, Governor General of Canada, invites the public to watch great Canadian films under the stars at the third annual Rideau Hall Movie Nights, on the evenings of June 29 and 30, 2016. This unique event features acclaimed English- and French-Canadian films, on alternate nights, screened outdoors on the grounds of Rideau Hall. The film selection will be announced at a later date.
"Rideau Hall Movie Nights is an opportunity for Canadians to sit back and enjoy our incredible homegrown film industry talent," said the Governor General. "Canadian films have been met with tremendous international success and it's important that we celebrate this success at home as well. I can't think of a better place to do this then at Rideau Hall, a place where all Canadians are welcomed."
