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.
My, Oh My! Brokeback Mountain and National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation‘s 60 year old Randy Quaid has been arrested here in Vancouver, along with his 47 year old wife, Evi. Bench warrants for the amount of $50,000 were issued earlier this week by a Santa Barbara judge, due to the fact that they skipped an arraignment hearing in a felony burglary case. Wowsas! Quaid is an Oscar-nominated actor, for his role in the 1973 film, The Last Detail.
They are appearing for a hearing at 2 p.m. PT this afternoon (Friday) before the Immigration and Refugee Board. Serious stuff! The VPD were called for assistance on Wednesday to a south Vancouver address as they had been informed there was a man and woman wanted on outstanding warrants in the U.S.
So what are the two accused of? Squatting in the guest house of a Montecito home they once owned in the 1990s. To make matters worse, his wife is also charged with resisting arrest.
