The Kootenay Premiere - Back to the Rootz
On Saturday March 2nd, Hicks on Sticks returns to the Kootenays for the first time since the final stop of the fabled tour back in 1999.
The film will be showing one night only at The Old Theatre, 185 Columbia Ave, Castlegar BC. It will be the first screening at the old theatre since it closed down about a hundred years ago… (or at least a dozen).
Two screenings 6pm and 9:30pm.
Tickets will be $10 at the door, on a first come first serve basis. All of our Indiegogo funders get in for free.
Pre-screening skate-jam at the Castlegar Complex skate-park, weather permitting, (otherwise at the Kinnaird indoor) from 3pm - 5:30pm. We are setting up a shuttle bus to take the kids to the theatre from the park.
After the 9pm screening there is an after-party at the Lions Head Pub featuring the debut show of the Kootenay’s own Black Sabbath tribute band, ‘Sack Grabbath’ featuring members of ‘Savage Blade’. Entry is free with movie tickets, otherwise its $5.
Should be a really awesome day in the Kootz, stoked to see everyone there and finally show the film to the home-town crowd.
Invite your friends to the Hicks facebook event and the after-party facebook event.

They came out to the Vancouver screening of Hicks on Sticks and were so stoked they put together this two page spread review on the film. It’s the best, and we love them.
