At The Cinematheque we’re dedicated to bringing you what we like to think of as essential cinema. Whether new releases, classics or rarely-seen gems, these are movie experiences that stay with you long after you’ve left the theatre: movies that inspire you by their their craft and beauty; movies that really stir the emotions; movies that make you question your assumptions; movies that give you a genuine insight into the local, national and global communities to which we belong.
Supplementing our rich body of programming are core resources like our Film Reference Library, West Coast Film Archive, the bi-monthly Cinematheque Program Guide, and our unique educational programs. And as an integral part of the local film community, we frequently provide the only big-screen access to some of the very best work from filmmakers throughout the province.
So if you want to create, present, learn about, or simply enjoy essential cinema experiences, we look forward to welcoming you to The Cinematheque.
Our 194-seat theatre is in the heart of Vancouver’s downtown, served by extensive transit links and surrounded by on-street metered parking. Our theatre and washrooms are wheelchair accessible.
In addition to attending our regular screenings, you can also rent our theatre for your own special event, festival or preview screening.
