Kuba Oms and Evening film Screening
Date: Friday, September 09, 2011
Time: 6.30 pm
Location: Whistler Olympic Plaza
If you are a participant or spectator for the GranFondo bike event on Saturday, stay the weekend in Whistler as there is a lot happening. As part of the summer concert series Whistler Presents will be hosting a number of free performances over the weekend.
The Victoria's native Kuba Oms will be performing on Friday evening, starting at 6:30 p.m at the Whistler Olympic Plaza. He is known for his electro funk tunes. His music is often likened to a cross between Jamiroquai, Paolo Nutini, David Gray, Ben Harper and Al Green.
After the performance by Kuba Oms there will be an evening film screening of a classic film called Breaking Away. This classic comedy from 1979 was an Academy Award winner. Enjoy the evening as you get to watch a movie in the outdoors and see the sun set behind Whistler and Blackcomb Mountain. Bring warm clothes and snuggle up under a blanket to watch this movie about four friends who come to terms with life after high school. The film is centered on top-notch cyclist Dave (Dennis Christopher) who learns that the world's bicycling champions are always Italian and he attempts to turn himself into an Italian!
