The film is called “Out of the Interior: Survival of the Small-town Cinema in British Columbia” and was made by Curtis & Silmara Emde.
The Oliver Theatre is featured in the documentary
The documentary’s website reads: “Out of the Interior: Survival of the Small-town Cinema in British Columbia is a full-length exploration of classic movie theaters in BC’s southern interior, from Vernon’s Towne Cinema to Creston’s Tivioli; from Grand Forks’ GEM to Revelstoke’s Roxy – and every stop along the way.
The filmmakers delve into the history of public film exhibition in our province, celebrate the communal moviegoing experience in the present – and offer a glimpse of the movie house’s future in the digital age.
The documentary is also a tribute to the hard-working men and women of the region who keep the popcorn hot and the movies flickering on our screens.”
Tickets are $7 at the door. Celebrate the Oliver Theatre’s place in our local history.
