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 (an $18.50 value) at Pacific Cinémathèque, located downtown.
Earning honours from the Vancouver Sun as 2009’s best art house/foreign film theatre, Pacific Cinémathèque offers alluring alternatives to the kiss-kiss, bang-bang blitz of Hollywood with its emphasis on international films, art-house flicks, Canadian classics, and under-the-radar movies. Get a double-bill ticket and activate your celluloid goggles for consumption of two game-changing movie experiences in a single night ($12.50 for adults). The theatre regularly features classics from cinematic luminaries like Jean-Luc Godard, Federico Fellini, Akira Kurosawa, and Wong Kar-Wai, among others. Peruse the website to find an evening offering a double-bill duo of showings, and wash down your viewing experience with a small popcorn ($3.50) and a small pop ($2.50) from the concession stand.
Pacific Cinémathèque’s 194-seat theatre provides a comfortable-as-cotton-candy viewing experience for breathless psychos and bicycle thieves alike.
