One of Vancouver’s most respected theatres is opening its screen to some good, old-fashioned cinematic trash.
Moviegoers can usually count on Vancity Theatre (1181 Seymour St.) to screen the best (or, at least most interesting) films from around the world, along with classics, forgotten gems, documentaries, and retrospectives. Not so when the NorthWest Comedy Festival gets involved.
Once a month over the next few months, the theatre – which is programmed by the folks at the Vancouver International Film Festival – will screen some famously bad cinema. And it will all be done in Hecklevision.
