The buzz around the Point these days is the Academy Award nomination of “In Darkness”, a World War II film produced by Sturgeon Point resident Eric Jordan. Eric’s film has been nominated for an Oscar in the Best Foreign Film Category. Our congratulations go out to Eric and Faye on this exciting achievement!
A number of people have been asking where they can see the film, and in response to demand Eric has graciously arranged for a FREE screening at the Century Cinema on Kent Street in Lindsay on Tuesday, February 21, 7:15 p.m. All Sturgeon Pointers are invited! I hope to see many of you there.
