A Canadian comedy is the next outdoor film from the Whistler Film Festival’s Reel Alternatives Series. ‘Seducing Dr. Lewis’ is the story of a little harbour village in Quebec trying to attract a company to build a factory nearby and revive the local economy. The only condition is that there must be a resident doctor and so, the villagers work to convince Dr. Lewis to set up shop in St. Marie. The movie plays at Lost Lake Park at 10 p.m. on Wed. Aug. 11. Tickets are $8. Catch the bus for 50 cents at Gondola Exchange. Call 604-935-8035 for weather details.
