Film Night – “A Bear Named Winnie” – Wed. 1 November

A Bear named WinnieThe true story of the REAL bear who was the inspiration behind one of the most beloved characters in the history of children’s literature…

Canada, 1914. The start of World War I.  En route to Vancouver to report to the Canadian Army Veterinary Corps, veterinary surgeon Lieutenant Harry Colebourn acquires an orphaned black bear cub whom he names ‘Winnie’ after his hometown of Winnipeg in Manitoba.
Harry and his regiment are posted to Salisbury Plain in England for training, and they manage to ‘smuggle’ Winnie in with them.  When the boys are sent to fight in France, Winnie is placed in the care of London Zoo, where she soon becomes the star attraction.
When a man named A.A. Milne brings his young son Christopher Robin to visit the zoo, the child decides to change the name of his teddy bear from ‘Edward Bear’ to ‘Winnie the Pooh’.
The rest, as they say….
