Stronger pre-screening tickets giveaway

Lately, the Port Moody Station Museum has been the location for the filming of a few TV shows and movies. We are fortunate to have been given 10 double passes to the pre-screening of the upcoming movie Stronger to give away to 10 lucky PMSM patrons!

Starring Jake Gyllenhaal and Tatiana Maslany, Stronger is the inspiring true story of Jeff Bauman, an ordinary man who captured the hearts of his city and the world to become a symbol of hope following the infamous 2013 Boston Marathon bombing. It is Jeff’s deeply personal account of the heroic journey which tests a family’s bond, defines a community’s pride and inspires his inner courage to overcome devastating adversity.

The Pre-screening will be at Fifth Avenue Cinemas in Vancouver on Wednesday September 20th at 7pm.

How to enter:
Join us for our third WWI reenactment on September 16th at 7pm to enter. Names will be drawn at the end of the event. Must be 19+ to enter.

Stronger is in theatres September 22

Koch Exhibit delayed

Due to unforeseen circumstances, the Koch Exhibit that was set to open on September 10 will be delayed until further notice.

Although there have been many issues with the transportation of the exhibit, the Port Moody Station Museum is still committed to bringing these meaningful and significant sketches to display in our museum.

You can read more about the exhibit and the challenges we face in bringing the exhibit to Port Moody in yesterday’s Tri-Cities Newspaper. You can see the article online at: https://issuu.com/tri-city-news/docs/tcnews_0906/19

you find the museum being mentioned everywhere

Nice to see that our breweries in Port Moody are talked about as far away as LA. John Lee’s article in the LA Times talks about brewery row. But like any well rounded visitor he stops at the Station Museum to soak up some history. This summer we saw some many people from all over the world taking a moment to pause and look at history in the museum.

Oral Histories – Corine Carey

8292131

8292131Here at the Port Moody Station Museum we strive to keep a record of the history of our beautiful city and the people who live, or have lived, in it. One of the ways we do this is through our Oral Histories initiative, which has captured the stories of over 100 people so far. The most recent of these is Corine Carey, the first Oral Histories shot in video. We hope for this to become the new status quo for our project, and invite you to watch her stories about life in Ioco on YouTube at the link below. If you have information on local history and would like to be interviewed for an Oral History, please contact the museum and let us know.
