Sudbury Symphony Invites Audiences to Escape with Midnight in Paris

Fundraiser brings Academy Award Winning Film & Live Concert Together

Sudbury, ON Nov. 4: The old saying “Don’t Mess with Success” holds true as the Sudbury Symphony brings back a special one night event that debuted to acclaim last year.

In 2013, The SSO’s presentation of The Red Violin, was a hit as music and film lovers gathered to watch the combination of an award-winning film and the sweet sounds of members from the Big Nickel’s popular orchestra.

Woody Allen’s Oscar-winning Midnight in Paris gets the nod this year as the Sudbury Symphony and Music and Film in Motion offer up a night of live music and film for one night only on Saturday, November 8.

“Last year’s event was so much fun,” Dawn Cattapan, Executive Director of the Sudbury Symphony said. “It’s a great way to bring music, film and our community together in a new way that is intimate, interesting and clearly enjoyed.”

With an all-star cast, including Kathy Bates, Adrien Brody, Rachel McAdams and Owen Wilson, Midnight in Paris is a romantic comedy about an engaged American couple on a trip to Paris. Seeking inspiration through the City of Lights, Owen Wilson’s idealistic character, Gil, doesn’t just daydream about escaping his daily life; he finds himself travelling back to 1920s Paris and begins to wonder if a life different from his own would be much better.  In his review, Richard Roeper gave the film 3.5/4 stars, calling it “smart, funny, whimsical- one of the best romantic comedies in years.”

The evening begins at 7:30pm at College Boréal’s Concert Hall, located at 21 Lasalle Blvd, with a concert featuring musicians of the Sudbury Symphony. Following the film screening, local filmmakers and artists will come together in a curated discussion about nostalgia in art, moderated by CBC’s Jenifer Norwell.

Tickets are available for $40 through the orchestra’s box office by phoning 705.673.1280 or visiting

About the Sudbury Working Group

The Sudbury working-group of The Media Co-op was formed to create independent media in the North, to speak to our issues and outlooks on our communities as well as the world around us. Independent media provides an avenue for people who are wishing to gain critical perspective on the issues that matter most to us, and to give a voice to those people and stories that you won't find in the mainstream media.

Currently, the Sudbury working group is on pause, due to a lack of members.  If you are keen to take on the challenge of creating and supporting local grassroots media, please get in touch.

Contact us at or follow us on Facebook.

If we become active again, we encourage you to support local grassroots media by:

  • Getting a membership. Membership fees are intended to pay local writers for local content and support emerging writers.  Membership forms are here
  • Submitting content. We are able to pay for a limited number of strong local pieces.  Contact us to pitch an idea, or for story ideas.   See our Editorial Policy here.  We encourage local grassroots groups to submit content about their work, issues and events.
