Step inside the walls of Kingston Penitentiary and immerse yourself in the surreal world of “The Truman Show”. On this special evening, the lines between reality and fiction blur as Jim Carrey’s Truman Burbank comes to life amidst the historical architecture of Canada’s oldest maximum-security prison. The very walls that have witnessed real-life dramas will now echo the story of a man whose life is an orchestrated TV spectacle. Join us on September 1, where life inside meets life on screen. The doors unlock at 7 p.m.! Get your Tickets HERE
Kingston Penitentiary, a National Historic Site with a legacy spanning over 178 years, offers more than just a viewing: it promises an immersion. Every movie night will be accompanied by a special presentation, revealing anecdotes and tales that bind the reel world with the real history of this iconic institution.
But the experience doesn’t end there! Before the silver screen lights up, you’ll have the chance to indulge in classic movie treats. An indoor concession will be at your service, offering popcorn, soft drinks, and souvenirs to complete your movie night.
