Here's what's on in the Tri-Cities for Friday, Dec. 8, 2023:
Grab a seat in the Inlet Theatre inside Port Moody City Hall (100 Newport Dr.) to see Joyeux Noel, a film based on a true event that happened on Christmas Eve during the First World War involving Scottish, French and German soldiers. The 1997 movie is being screened by the Port Moody Film Society at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $5 plus a $5 society membership for the year.
’Twas the Night
Conductor Justin Maller leads the Coquitlam Chorale Society vocal ensembles in a show called ’Twas the Night Before Christmas, with pianist Lorna Yeates, from 7:30 to 9:30 p.m. at the Eagle Ridge Bible Fellowship in Coquitlam (1160 Lansdowne Dr.). The holiday show will feature modern adaptations of familiar songs of the season. All ages are welcome. Tickets range from $10 to $25.
Where’s the penguin?
Families can be part of a musical adventure at the Evergreen Cultural Centre in Coquitlam (1205 Pinetree Way) at 7 p.m. for Molly Wilson’s Search for the Christmas Penguin. Tickets are $10.
Take to the dance floor at the Royal Canadian Legion branch 263 in Coquitlam (1025 Ridgeway Ave.) as Rhythm Street hits the stage at 7 p.m.
Pull on your Coquitlam Express jersey to support the local hockey team as it meets Langley on home ice: the Poirier Sport and Leisure Complex (633 Poirier St.). The game starts at 7 p.m.
Head over to the Port Coquitlam Community Centre (2150 Wilson Ave.) for a 7 p.m. hockey game between the Port Coquitlam Trailblazers and Surrey.
Operation Red Nose
If you’re out tonight and need a safe ride home, call the volunteers at Operation Red Nose Tri-Cities — an organization that supports KidSport Tri-Cities to help families register their children in sports. A driver and navigator will drive you home in your own vehicle while an escort driver in another car follows behind to collect the volunteers afterward. The hours of operation are 9 a.m. to 3 a.m.
