Speaking for myself, I love watching classic Christmas flicks during the holiday season. Whether it’s playing in the background while I decorate the tree or wrap presents, I have a roster of films I typically watch over and over at this time of year. I’m sure you do too. Everyone has a favorite Yuletide flick.
While there’s nothing cozier than watching Love, Actually cuddled up on the couch with your loved one, there’s something special about heading out to the theater and seeing it on the big screen. Especially when said theater is a classic heritage building. Plus, if you can help out those less fortunate it’s win-win all around.
Starting Friday, December 14 til December 20, the Vogue Theatre is showing holiday favorites to help collect for the Greater Vancouver Food Bank Society. Nowadays, the Vogue is a go-to place for concerts and events, but the gorgeous venue is opening their doors once again to movie goers. The landmark building is one of the last remaining theatres from Vancouver’s famed “Theatre Row“. If you haven’t watched a movie at this grand location, you definitely have to. Travel back in time and experience film watching like it once was.
Doors open at 7:00pm, movie starts at 7:30. The Vogue staff will be serving an assortment of beer and wine along with traditional movie snacks. This is a 19+ event; Admission for the screening will be $4 or a donation of non-perishable food items for the Vancouver Food Bank. I already have a few dates planned on my calendar.
