Bieber movie may move audience

  • May. 4, 2011 1:00 p.m.

A kid’s movie screening has never made people travel the islands, says QCI Rec’s Julia Brobel, but this Friday’s airing of the Justin Bieber movie in Masset will. The movie “Justin Bieber: Never say Never” is only showing in Masset. Ms Brobel said the Junior Rangers who run the concession in Sandspit said they’d wait for the next movie (Rango) and Port Clements kids polled on the playground said “no way” to the teen singer/songwriter sensation. Queen Charlotte never even returned her call said Ms Brobel. The movie, which is the only “G” rated one she’s ever encountered (even Ice Age was rated “PG”), airs in Masset on May 6 at 7pm at the community. Ms Brobel said the hall capacity is 200 and the most she’s ever seen at a film is 147. She’s interested to see how many come. The northern youth council is holding the concession and even bought Mr. Bieber paraphernalia to sell. “They’re going all out,” she said. She was expecting strong reactions, but she won’t be surprised if some Port Clements kids actually do come to Masset. Copyright 2011 Haida Gwaii OBSERVER
