From our small beginnings out of the Vancouver Art Gallery on Georgia Street in 1972 to a well established and stable arts organization, the Cinematheque has finally reached middle age in 2012 with a 40th Birthday.
We will be celebrating this milestone all year with a special VIP party on August 2nd and $1 public screening of Hitchcock's "North by Northwest."
Come November, our annual fundraising event will celebrate 40 years of cinema with a gala at the CBC Building on November 15th.
And then for you die-hard movie fans, a movie marathon will take place the November 16 to 18 weekend.
What else do we have in store? A new look in our courtyard with fresh signage, website updates, new swag and a new brand!
Thanks to you, our loyal audience, for making what we love to do possible - bringing essential cinema to the BIG screen.
In honour of our birthday celebration, I encourage you to enter our Cinematheque Stories 40th Birthday Contest and enter your fondest memory of the Cinematheque via our twitter/facebook or email me at email@example.com. The lucky winner will receive two VIP tickets to our August 2nd party and screening complete with reserved seating, complimentary popcorn and drinks. Good luck!
