Reel Monday begins September 12

Reel Monday begins September 12

Monday, September 12 marks our first film of the fall Reel Monday season – Love Sarah! See below for a synopsis of the film.

Reel Monday is our major fundraiser for the St. Albert Public Library, with a film screening once a month at the beautiful Arden Theatre. All profits support the important work of our amazing Library!

This season, we are required to sell our tickets via the Arden Theatre box office. Tickets can be purchased with season passes or individually. The process for season passes has a few extra steps, so we have prepared a guide below. Season passes are $50 (save $10!) and individual tickets are $15 each.
