The Victoria Theatre Association have announced the 2018 Summer Cool Films Series line-up running July 6-August 26.
Since the 1940s, what is now known as the Victoria Theatre was the place to come to see a great movie. The theatre at the corner of First and Main Streets was a first-run Warner Brothers house and then a Disney cinema. Whether you remember taking the bus downtown (by yourself or being dropped off by your parents) to see the latest Disney flick or you’re just a fan of classic cinema, you’ll want to join us during the summer.
New this year, you can now buy your individual film tickets in advance – or at the door – still just $6 each!
With a Cool Films Passbook, you get 10 passes you can use in any combination across the entire series (with the exception of the Reel Late at the Vic showings) for just $39. That means you can bring 10 people to one movie, or you can enjoy 10 movies by yourself, or you could bring a date to five movies… You get the idea! Whatever way you choose to use them, a passbook will save you $21!
Plus, FREE POPCORN & SODA in the lobby prior to regular Cool Films showings starting one hour prior to showtime. CASH BAR AND LIVE MUSIC BY C. WRIGHT’S PARLOUR TRICKS at Reel Late at the Vic!
Fridays and Saturdays at 7 p.m., Sundays at 3 p.m.
