Marie Dressler Birthday Invitation
Please join us at Victoria Hall Citizens Forum on Thursday, November 9th at 2:00 pm for the celebration of Marie Dressler's 149th Birthday.

You will be treated to a short documentary produced by Marie Dressler Foundation in association with the University of Toronto.

The documentary focuses on the community engagement and enthusiasm that resulted in the creation of Marie Dressler Museum, Canada's newest interactive heritage museum.

Refreshments will include "Marie Dressler Butter Tarts" from Dutch Oven, along with tea, coffee, etc.

Following the refreshment break, you are invited to watch one of Marie Dressler's earliest movies, "Tillie Wakes Up", made in 1917, and 46 minutes in length.
