Summary: The inspirational true story of the first female African-American mathematician, Katherine Johnson (Taraji P. Henson), and her two colleagues, Dorothy Vaughan (Octavia Spencer) and Mary Jackson (Janelle Monáe), whose groundbreaking calculations helped NASA catch up in the "Space Race" with the Soviet Union and allowed John Glenn (Glen Powell) to become the first American astronaut to successfully make a complete orbit of the Earth.

In addition to helping launch John into orbit, the brilliant women crossed gender and race lines, defied expectations and battled stereotypes. In the process, they inspired generations of people to aim high and dream big.

Announcements

A note about movie schedules. We run movies on Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights until otherwise noted (eg. when we have a building rental). New movies will open on Fridays.

When bookings are confirmed we will announce them on this site with show times, on our Facebook page, with a poster at theatre, and usually on the Boissevain town sign.

About the Theatre

Boissevain Community Theatre is a community-owned, non-profit movie theatre and performing arts facility in Boissevain, Manitoba. It is managed by the Boissevain & Morton Theatre Committee: a volunteer board jointly established by the Town of Boissevain and the RM of Morton.

At our current location on Stephen Street, a movie theatre opened in 1955 as the Victoria Theatre having moved into a new building from its former location on South Railway Street. After closing in the early 1980s the facility was reopened as the Community Theatre on November 2, 1984 and continued on as both a cinema and live performance theatre.

Structural problems uncovered in 2009 led to the building being closed in May 2009 and substantially demolished in mid-2010. The construction of a replacement building began in Fall 2011, and the new Community Theatre held its grand opening on June 6, 2012. At the same time, a new digital cinema projection system was installed.

Our building project was been supported by local donations from individuals, businesses and organizations; grants from Manitoba Community Places Program, the Manitoba Community Services Council (Manitoba Lotteries), and the Southwest Regional Development Corporation; and major contributions from the municipal councils of Boissevain and Morton.

The Community Theatre continues to operate as a not-for-profit community service organization and tax-deductible donations are gratefully accepted through the Town of Boissevain.
