They always have a great selection of movies. I also love their special events when they bring live music. Grab your popcorn and a glass of wine while listening to live music before or after the movie.

I've gone to this theatre a number of times for some of their independent film viewings as well as for a couple of their director talks. All of which have been great. The theatre has comfy plush seating and the concession, while not stocking the...More

This is a super comfy theater. The snacks are mostly adult oriented and the movies are most likely an art or international or documentary film. The seats are high backed and comfortable.

Courtesy of my Vancouver friend (I live in Toronto), I viewed two wonderful non-mainstream films at Vancity -- Erbarme Dich (Passion stories), a 2015 documentary featuring the divine music of Bach, and The Wave, a 2015 Norwegian tsunami catastrophe drama. The Erbarme Dich film was...More

We love this movie experience. Seats are so comfy. Movies are so awesome most of the time. We love going to movies at Vancity. The only thing is you have to have a "membership" for every festival or the theater. It is some strange rule...More

Favourite place to see non mainstream films and sometimes guest speakers or film makers commenting on the film being shown. The programming is excellent. The venue is super comfortable with comfy seating. The small nature of the facility is really cozy. Able to buy beer...More

I love the comfy seats, the smallish clean and modern theatre, the wide selection of out of ordinary films to choose from on an ever changing showcase. Short runs so check out the website often.

West End
A hodgepodge of landscapes, the West End combines
verdant gardens and blocky modern architecture, with
Victorian bits and Edwardian bobs in between. It is a
paradise for takeout food, take-away coffee, and
perhaps incongruously, some of Vancouver's most
languid lines of beachfront. English Bay and Sunset
Beach invite swimmers, strollers, and picnic-lovers to
take in dusk settling over the water, or to jog along
