Remember the whirr and clacking of the 16mm film projector? Parks Canada’s Mountain WIT brings it all back with a collection of classic celluloid from days gone by. These delightful short vintage films from our vaults will not be seen anywhere else. From the historical to the hysterical, this is a trip down memory lane that you won’t want to miss!
