Old CPI Film Faves
National Film Board classics we love
Film Time - old school...
Many years ago, we campers were shown movies from the NFB, summer-in and summer-out. Actual celluloid copies were shipped to the island on heavy reels, and screened through the searing heat of projector lamps. How many times did the film jam and frames burn up before our eyes?! These classics evolved to VHS, then DVDs. Today they live online at NFB's fantastic site.
Make popcorn and dive in!
Does the Island Sleep? No, she only dozes.
The normal bustle of May Crew didn’t happen for the first time since Glenn and Sladds took over camp in 2000. And, of course, Summer 2020 was cancelled when Ontario closed overnight camps. But CPI is indeed only dozing: a tiny work crew has been polishing and prepping camp for all the action we're looking forward to in 2021.
A sign of renovations this year? A still life of items lost under the Canoe Dock over many years, recovered once the decking came off in July. Every object tells a story?
