July 1st is both Canada Day as well as Memorial Day here in Newfoundland and Labrador. Don't you wish you were in St. John's in 1982 for this celebration of film? It was a blow out "Burstday" and $3 entry for two films? What a steal!
1 July 1924 The War Memorial in St. John's was unveiled. Check out the Centre for Newfoundland Studies blog entry
about this event.
