FEATURED EVENTS IN VANCOUVER
Fans of TV’s Prison Break can pick up a piece of pop culture history this Friday when the set and props from the show’s recent revival are auctioned off in Vancouver.
The show, which originally ran for four seasons and finished with a television movie, recently returned to production after Fox greenlit a limited run revival series.
Stars Wentworth Miller and Dominic Purcell reprised their roles for the fifth season which began shooting in Vancouver in April. However, now that production has wrapped, the studio is auctioning off sets and props as part of a liquidation sale.
The show, which is set for our screens in 2017, hit the headlines earlier this year after its star Dominic Purcell was forced to issue an apology after describing Vancouver as a “gulag” on social media.
VANCOUVERS GULAG ………..#vancouver been here now getting on a #year not a sunny day in sight. I think I’ve seen 4 days of nice weather. People say we had 3 days of #sunshine like #santa just arrived. Well congratulations. I grew up in Australia Yo and have lived in the beautiful sunny #california for twenty years where I #surf and play in the ocean. Oh did I tell you I’m Australian/American. Anyway Stop telling me to go on hikes get on a bike and ride around a Lake or swim in its frigid waters oh and #whistler enough!!! I’m here to work. That’s the only attraction at this point. Not only does Vancouver have a leaking cloud problem they have a homeless population problem that roam the streets in desperate need for help. It appears the Vancouver government and its #politicians to my eyes at least are much more inclined to turn a blind eye too the mentally ill and homeless and rather focus on the enormous amount of construction serving foreign investment groups. Why am I saying this ? Because I’ve been around the world many times and have not seen so many displaced mentally ill people take up entire blocks and turn it into a place of disturbing sadness and horror. It’s the same everywhere I guess not just Vancouver. Yeah yeah I’m preaching which I hate to do because not for a second do I believe I’m some kind of Saint I’m just as flawed just as selfish as the next #idiot. I’m up here in my beautiful hotel suite preaching. But hey it ain’t my job it’s the governments job the politicians job to serve its people. So when you visit Vancouver and enjoy the beautiful lakes, mountains it’s pretty little parks cute little trails. Be sure to check out Hastings street not as pretty it’s where you get to see a very very real part of Vancouver. Ps. Can wait to read the hate comments I get. Haha.

When: 10 am – 6 pm Friday, July 29 and Saturday July 30.
