The Celebration Zone at Confederation Landing Park in Charlottetown.

Two movie showings planned for late this afternoon and this evening at the Celebration Zone on the waterfront in Charlottetown are going ahead as planned.

Front Lines, a National Film Board of Canada production paying tribute to the First World War, will be screened at 4:30 p.m.

Avatar is on the bill at 7 p.m. as part of the Movie Monday offering.

Front Lines was directed by Claude Guilmain and traces the conflict through the war diary and private letters of five Canada soldiers and a nurse.  The film mingles war footage, historical photos and readings of excerpts from the diary and letters, breathing life into 90-year-old documents and accompanying archival images.

Following a brief reception where refreshments will be served, a colour party will signal the beginning of a ceremony to recognize the 100th anniversary of the First World War and all veterans.

Organizations: National Film Board of Canada
