Museum of the Highwood<br />

On Location: Film in the Foothills.<br />

October 24, 2015 to May 20, <strong>2016</strong>. In 1906<br />

the first “moving picture” or “Friscoscope”<br />

was shown at the Victoria Opera House<br />

in High River. In 1919, “moving picture<br />

operators” arrived for the visit of Edward,<br />

Prince of Wales and “captured a few shots<br />

of local views”.<br />

This set off a long series of events that<br />

became interwoven with our history. The<br />

spectacular and varied scenery of the<br />

Highwood area has provided a backdrop for<br />

many films and television shows.<br />

Since the early 1920s, more than 140<br />

films and television series have been filmed<br />

in Southern Alberta. The exhibit features<br />

artifacts and props from Heartland,<br />

Superman, Fargo and more. Grab your<br />

popcorn and take in this “moving” exhibit.<br />
