Brandon Sun - PRINT EDITION

Thank you for helping make local book launch a success

We would like to thank the Brandon Sun, Manitoba author Russ Gourluck, and most importantly our community partners at Daly House Museum for their hard work in ensuring that “Silver Screens on the Prairie” had such a successful book launch in our city.

In raising the curtain on historic Manitoba theatres, Mr. Gourluck reminds us of how fortunate we are to have a grand theatre from the last century still existing in our community.

The Strand Theatre has been a cultural focus in Brandon for nearly a hundred years, holding memories for generations of Brandonites.

The Strand and the Prince Edward Hotel were contemporaries, built in Brandon's glory years, and both are central elements of Brandon’s historic downtown commercial streetscape. Alone it remains, of Brandon’s historic theatres, and we are reminded of its cultural importance.

The launch of “Silver Screens on the Prairie” will benefit the work of two dedicated community non-profit organizations seeking to make Brandon a better place to live.

The Daly House Museum, with its ambitious Victorian Garden project beautifying 18th Street, and our own Strand Theatre project, seeking to fulfil the City of Brandon’s strategic goal of creating an arts and entertainment hub in our historic downtown, will both benefit from sales of this intriguing illustrated history.

Together we are sharing local profits from this book and author signed copies are available at Daly House Museum as a unique Christmas gift.

We are very grateful to all who have supported our work and we are particularly grateful to the Daly House Museum and author Russ Gourluck for their generosity in this season of giving. “Silver Screens on the Prairie” is a great book celebrating our history and encouraging us to build upon it.
