Waking Giant Coffee is located near the Women's Bookstore and Lot 66 on Court St in downtown Thunder Bay. "I'm kind of a lily pad in the upcoming downtown expansion," owner Jay Stapleton says. This new coffeeshop just opened in August 2014 and the space is a good size with eclectic seating. Along with your grandmother's couch there are lovely classic tables and chairs. A few of the bigger benches have salvaged bedframes employed as bench backs. The place has character.

The Paramount Theatre: Entertainment for the Whole Family
In 2013 the Paramount building, with its Art Deco interior, turned 65 years young. For 26 of those years, keeping it alive and functioning has been the work of one dedicated soul, Rose Cupello, the Theatre Manager, and owner of Maple Moose Adventures. Rose describes how after renovations, as of mid-October 2014, the Paramount theatre will again perform in its capacity as host of theatre productions, primarily Cambrian Players, along with special event movies, and as the home for a spanking new indoor playground in Thunder Bay, called Maple Moose Adventures. The confectionary lobby will also be new and improved. Cambrian Players is the adult theatre company whose combination of professional and novice actors, singers, dancers, set-decorators, fashion designers, etc.…

  Up until 1963, Cambrian Players was known as the Port Arthur Community Players when it began in 1949. Cambrian has always been in existence as "Theatre for the love of it!" meaning that volunteers put on the shows.

We'll give the lead role to the experienced actor. And we never have an inexperienced director. Directors always have a number of productions under their belt." With around 50 volunteers on every production, "we aim for professional standards –…
