For Susan Flanagan, the Revue Cinema was almost a lost cause. Back in 2006, the theatre had all but shuttered its doors, and was on the brink of closing down for good. Susan hit the streets and pounded the porches in the neighborhood, sold "Save the Revue" t-shirts and buttons, wrote press releases, and did just about everything in her power to raise enough money to keep the theater going. In the processes, she effectively recruited a battalion of volunteers—Revue Film Society—who not only helped with funding, but dedicated their collective manpower to help clean, paint, and even create new art deco light fixtures for the theater for its grand re-opening.
Today, Revue Cinema—a not-for-profit theatre—screens films that range from blockbuster hits to cult classics. In addition to showing new releases, the staff arranges a series of cultural programs such as Silent Sundays, where live piano accompaniment adds vim to North American and European films from the 1910s and 1920s. And in addition to the movies, the snack bar sets the bar for other theatres by selling organic juices and vintage-style pop and candy.
