Craigdarroch Castle Historical Museum Society has completed a new documentary film about The Castle and its history. Directed and produced by Castle Society Board Member Robin Adair, Victoria’s Castle premiered at The Vic Theatre to an invitation-only audience on Friday May 4th and has been shown at 7pm on Friday evenings at the Castle. To watch the trailer for the documentary visit: www.thecastle.ca or view a preview of the doc here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Tm5rXnfLOzQ.
Due to popular demand, the screening schedule has been extended through June 29th, showing at 7pm every Friday. Doors open at 6:15pm for the combination self-guided tours of the Castle and screenings of the documentary, with the film beginning at 7pm. Admission is regular admission plus $5.00. ($18.75 for adults, $17.75 for seniors, $13.75 for students ages 13-higher ed with ID and $10.00 for children under age 13.) Seating is extremely limited so advance reservations are highly recommended and REQUIRED for groups of 10 or more.
The vision for the film is to tell the history of Craigdarroch, while setting it in the context of Victoria’s local and regional history. Framing the immigration of the Dunsmuirs to Vancouver Island from Scotland, the developments that led up to the Castle’s construction and the subsequent events that shaped its many uses will help tell a more complete story about not only Craigdarroch, but the city of Victoria itself.
