For years, films have been subliminally inserting food imagery to encourage moviegoers to leave the theatre and return with a picnic basket full of chicken tenders. Stay seated for the entire showing with today's Groupon: for $8, you get a double-bill movie ticket, popcorn, and a drink at Pacific Cinémathèque, located downtown (a $17 value). This Groupon is not valid toward non–Pacific Cinémathèque events, such as the DOXA Documentary Film Festival and the Vancouver International Film Festival.

Pacific Cinémathèque has been bringing essential cinema to Vancouver for nearly four decades. With an emphasis on international films, art-house flicks, Canadian classics, and under-the-radar movies, Pacific Cinémathèque offers alluring alternatives to the kiss-kiss, bang-bang blitz of Hollywood, earning it honours from the Vancouver Sun as 2009’s best art house/foreign film theatre. Get a double-bill ticket ($11.50 for adults) and activate your celluloid goggles for consumption of two game-changing movie experiences in one night. Upcoming features include a one-two punch from decorated documentary filmmakers Albert and David Maysles, with Grey Gardens and Gimme Shelter chronicling ruinous recluses and rock-‘n’-roll rawness, respectively, while the Italian filmmaker Francesco Rosi’s works get top billing in a special retrospective running May 27–June 10. Other upcoming Pacific Cinémathèque films available on double bills include works by Japanese filmmaking legend Akira Kurosawa and the little-seen American cult comedy Casablanca. Wash down your viewing experience with a small popcorn ($3) and a small pop ($2.50) from the concession stand, both included in your Groupon.

Pacific Cinémathèque’s 194-seat theatre, located downtown, provides a comfortable-as-cotton-candy viewing experience for breathless psychos and bicycle thieves alike. Get your Groupon and stir up cinematic jealousy in 8 ½ seven samurai with a night out to Pacific Cinémathèque.

Reviews

Pacific Cinémathèque was the Vancouver Sun's pick for best art house/foreign film theatre last year and was featured in a Seattle Times write-up on where to hang out in Vancouver. Seven Yelpers give it 4.5 stars.

  • Pacific Cinematheque has the most eclectic lineup of films with programming that includes independent films from all over the world. Slovenia? Yup. Japan? Ditto. When you need a fix of Fellini or Herzog or even Kurosawa, PC is at the top of a short list of real art house cinemas. – Randy Shore, Vancouver Sun
  • I'm rarely dissatisfied with what's playing at the cinematheque, and with open events almost every night it's a great option to see something rare, something interesting and something innovative in film. – Cameron M., Yelp

Cinematheque is a great little movie theatre. Good programming, friendly staff, and good popcorn. Conveniently located between the west end, and downtown. Check it out!
