On an ongoing basis, Confederation Theatre presents screenings of excellent movies that are not easily available. The Lunchbox was nominated for an Oscar and also played at the Toronto Film Festival. The story involves Saajan Fernandes, a widower about to retire from his job as an accountant. Ila is a young wife seeking her husband’s attention and looking for ways to put romance back into her marriage by cooking delicious food for him. In a mix-up, the lunchbox Ila prepares for her husband gets delivered, instead, to Saajan. Ila eventually realizes the mistake and with the advice of her neighbour, writes a letter to Saajan about the mix up and places it in the lunchbox the next day, along with her husband’s favourite meal.

Some comments from our audience members about Shackleton:
We’ve been to the Antarctic five times. The sound of the crumbling cracking ice was just like being back on board our icebreaker – how did you know? The penguin calls were spot on. Everything was great; the story and the sound transported us back to a place we love. A.C. Calgary.
As I had not heard of Ernest Shackleton, I found the play educational and amazingly inspiring. The Foley artists were highly impressive. – A.W. Lethbridge.
We enjoyed Shackleton, the radio play, very very much. The actors were fully engrossed in their roles. We could feel the hardship that they must have had to go through, just by listening. The Foley sounds were very convincing. – C.B. & J.B. Calgary
An original idea, executed wonderfully and told in immense detail. It is amazing to see the Foley and the story come together on stage. – S.M.K. Calgary
Better than a regular play or movie. I just closed my eyes and let my own mind set the scenes for me. The Foley sounds combined with the actors voices made for a very rich experience. A.G. Calgary
It sounded fantastic. The play was excellent. My only regret is that I didn’t listen with my eyes closed at times. K.F. Calgary
The sound effects were very effective! J.B. Calgary
The story was compelling by itself. With the sound effects added, it was beyond compelling. L.H. Calgary
