INTO THE STORM

Listen to 100.3 The Bear for your chance to win a 4 pack of tickets to the advanced screening of INTO THE STORM!

Synopsis: From New Line Cinema, in association with Village Roadshow Pictures, comes the tornado disaster film“INTO THE STORM.” Steven Quale (“Final Destination 5”) directs the film, which is produced by Todd Garner (“Zookeeper,” “Knight and Day”).

In the span of a single day, the town of Silverton is ravaged by an unprecedented onslaught of tornadoes. The entire town is at the mercy of the erratic and deadly cyclones, even as storm trackers predict the worst is yet to come. Most people seek shelter, while others run towards the vortex, testing how far a storm chaser will go for that once-in-a-lifetime shot.

Told through the eyes and lenses of professional storm chasers, thrill-seeking amateurs, and courageous towns people, “INTO THE STORM” throws you directly into the eye of the storm to experience Mother Nature at her most extreme.


INTO THE STORM hits theaters August 8th!

On August 3rd, 1914, Hamilton Gault of Montreal offered to Canada top raise and equip a battalion for overseas service. On the 6th of August the Government accepted the offer, and the daughter of the Governor General of the time, Princess Patricia, agreed to lend her name to this about-to-form group of men largely of previous service. The Charter of the Regiment was signed on 10th August and recruiting began rapidly,being finished in eight days at Ottawa. Thus began a proud and splendid story of service to Canada.

Princess Patricia’s Canadian Light Infantry celebrates its 100th Anniversary in 2014. As one of Canada’s most renowned infantry regiments, several major events are planned to celebrate the 100th Anniversary, with activities centered on a ‘triad’ of commemorations occurring in Edmonton, Ottawa, and Frezenberg. Throughout these celebrations and commemorations, the PPCLI will aim to bring members of the Regiment past and present together. And as a national regiment many events will be open to the public, thereby connecting the Regiment with Canadians.

Keep it locked on 100.3 The Bear for your chance to win a double guest pass to the advanced screening of Expendables 3!

In THE EXPENDABLES 3, Barney(Stallone), Christmas (Statham) and the rest of the team come face-to-face with Conrad Stonebanks (Gibson), who years ago co-founded The Expendables with Barney. Stonebanks subsequently became a ruthless arms trader and someone who Barney was forced to kill… or so he thought. Stonebanks, who eluded death once before, now is making it his mission to end The Expendables -- but Barney has other plans. Barney decides that he has to fight old blood with new blood, and brings in a new era of Expendables team members, recruiting individuals who are younger, faster and more tech-savvy. The latest mission becomes a clash of classic old-school style versus high-tech expertise in the Expendables’ most personal battle yet.
