Anne of Green Gables free screening

posted Jan 20, 2016, 5:59 AM by Tracy Mertz

I’m writing on behalf of Kate Macdonald Butler and the Heirs of L.M. Montgomery Inc. to invite you, your staff, students and their families to the premiere screening of the new Anne of Green Gables movie on Tuesday February 2, 2016.


The two-hour movie, based on Montgomery’s eight Anne of Green Gables novels, is the first television adaptation of the books made in close partnership with the author’s family. The movie stars Martin Sheen as Matthew Cuthbert, Sara Botsford as Marilla Cuthbert, and Ella Ballentine as Anne Shirley. 


The screening and reception will take place at the Canadian Museum of History in Gatineau starting at 5:00 p.m. You will also have a chance to meet the new Anne Shirley, performed by Ella Ballentine.  Further details may be found in the attached invitation, including how to RSVP.


If you are unable to join us, please share this invitation with a fellow kindred spirit, and make sure to catch the free-to-air screening of the movie in mid-February on YTV.


Kind regards,

-Stephan Telka
