Film Night Contest

Did You Know?

  • The choral tradition at Luther began in 1914. In addition to in-school performances, the choir has shared its ministry of music with many congregations across Canada and has performed regularly on local and national radio and television shows, at contests and festivals.

  • Did you know there is a 3rd floor to the boy's dorm? It was traditionally assigned to upper level students who were more mature & responsible. Students who lived up there in the 1940’s confessed, in hushed tones, to having a radio when those devices were against school policy.

  • The Tuck Shop for snacks was at the bottom of the south stairs going to what is now the cafeteria. The legendary beans in a cone were considered a healthier & cheaper alternative to what students purchased across the street at the Aintree.

  • Students admitted to Luther College are not required to be Lutheran or Christian. By welcoming students of all faiths and religious backgrounds, Luther College enjoys a richly diverse student body.

  • In the late 1920's, during an in-house baseball tournament, Rex Schneider entered a team called "Prof Schneider's Battling Lions." This is the first hint that someday Luther teams would be known as the Lions.  

  • The gym officially opened July 8, 1951. The Sunday afternoon celebration, attended by 1,500 people, featured speeches followed by an evening celebration with another 1,500 people in attendance to hear the Luther Choir and the RCMP Band.

  • When the College was first looking to relocate from Melville to Regina, it considered land at College & Winnipeg, College & Broad, and 23rd & Albert, finally settling on 18 acres of land on the west end of property owned by Government House, now called Royal Street.

  • The first LIT was held on January 31, 1953. That year it was a one-day tournament involving sixteen teams from Southern Saskatchewan. All preliminary games were played cross court, two games at a time.

Greetings new students! This week's blog is all about Film Night, which is coming up soon: Wednesday, June 13th! Film showings begin at 7, and there will be a BBQ at 6, hosted by our current SRC. 

Luther College has one of the best high school film programs in the province, headed by our very own Mr. Willimott. We offer film classes starting in grade 10, which you can take all the way through grade 12 (including IB Film if you choose!). Our students produce their own films -- including writing, acting, directing and editing -- and are very proud to show them off every year. 

Film night is a great opportunity to celebrate the achievements of Luther's film students as a community and that's why we want to encourage new students to come out.

Like the Fine Arts Night last month, we have especially extended invitations to our incoming grade 9 students for Film Night, and there will be activities planned just for you, including games, prizes, and plenty of delicious food and drink -- so make sure you come out! 

In anticipation of Film Night, we are going to be giving out a $25 movie pass to a new student who can answer the following trivia question: What are the elements of film production covered in Film 20 (Communication Media -- Film 20)? Email your responses to julia.mitchell@luthercollege.edu before June 13th for a chance to win the movie gift card!
