The Northwest Montana Historical Society is proud to partner with the Flathead Valley Celtic Festival to invite you to a can’t-miss evening cultural event for the entire family on Friday, April 8, at 6:30pm at the Northwest Montana History Museum! “Scottish Stones: Destiny Calls” is FREE to attend and will feature a 7:00pm showing of the 2008 Scottish film Stone of Destiny, paired an introduction packed with Gaelic history and culture from the fine folks at the Flathead Celtic Festival.
As Scotland fails to establish its own parliament once again, young patriot Ian Hamilton (Charlie Cox) vows to salvage national pride by returning the Stone of Destiny, a symbol of Scottish sovereignty to its rightful place. Trouble is, the talismanic brick has been housed in Westminster Abbey under watchful English eyes since 1296.Based on a true story, Stone of Destiney is rated PG and runs for 96 minutes. In addition to Charlie Cox, the films stars Billy Boyd, Robert Carlyle, and Kate Mara.
The Flathead Valley Celtic Festival is a 501(c)3 nonprofit with the mission to spread Celtic culture throughout the Flathead Valley. The organization is best known for the titular festival that is held on second weekend in September and includes a Scottish heavy games competition, traditional music and dance, educational workshops, and Celtic clan representation. Besides the Festival, the organization puts on a number of other educational events throughout the calendar year, with this movie night being the most recent addition.
This screening will be free to attend, and all donations will be split evenly between the Flathead Valley Celtic Festival and the Northwest Montana Historical Society. In addition, the Flathead Celtic Festival will be raffling off some prizes to help support its mission. Of course, in keeping with Celtic Festival traditions, beer will be available for purchase. Popcorn, snacks, wine, and non-alcoholic beverages will also be available.
