In 2006, a small group of women met over a plate of nachos to discuss a dream that they shared: launching Vancouver's first all-women roller derby league. Seven years later, the Terminal City Rollergirls has blossomed into a flat-track institution, with more than 60 active participants, four full teams, and its own training program that teaches aspiring competitors the tricks of the trade. The league's teams— the Riot Girls, the Bad Reputations, the Faster Pussycats, and Public Frenemy—square off in bouts overseen by Terminal City's in-house referees, who call major fouls by putting players in the penalty box and recognize good play by throwing smiley-faced stickers into the crowd.
Named one of WestJet Magazine's Five Iconic Movie Theatres, The Dunbar Theatre keeps things simple: top first-run films, fresh popcorn, comfortable seats, a friendly staff, and one big screen. But in simplicity is something fresh. Those newly installed seats have enough room that audiences can stretch their legs, armrests raise for cuddling, and a balcony lets viewers change up their sightlines. Old-fashioned styles aside, the movie house stays up-to-date with recently upgraded projection technology and a sound system with the clarity of 10,000 Morgan Freemans. Located near UBC, the theatre is within walking distance of numerous diners and cafes, making it a date-night no-brainer. As one of the few remaining independently owned movie theaters in Vancouver, The Dunbar Theatre also offers specials, including free movie giveaways, to fans of their Facebook page.
On September 9, 1979, more than 100,000 Whitecaps fans lined Robson Street to salute their hometown club. That day, the Whitecaps returned home after becoming Vancouver's first professional sports team to win a major North American championship: they had just defeated the Tampa Bay Rowdies to claim the North American Soccer League title.
Since that first one, the franchise has won six additional titles–including four in a row from 1988–1991 while playing as the 86ers in the Canadian Soccer League. In fact, the club competed under that 86ers moniker until 2000. That year, spurred by public support and an unexplainable 'Caps logo beamed into the night sky, it re-emerged under its original Whitecaps identity. Today, the 21st-century incarnation of the club continues to battle for its first championship as part of Major League Soccer, where it began play in 2011.
For Goldie Smitlener, Stolen Path is a true passion project. As a young girl growing up in Croatia, the story of Victoria and her transformation from a coddled, entitled child into a strong, enlightened woman captured her imagination. Even years after her family migrated to Canada, the novel—based on a true story—stuck with her.
Now a grandmother, she traded in a retirement of relaxing for the chance to bring that young woman's story to life. To that end, she enlisted the expertise of award-winning director John Banovich, whose work can be seen on such channels as MTV Europe, Comedy Central, and Bravo. Along with a cast of up-and-comers, he brings 19th century Croatia to life as the stunning backdrop for a story crackling with forbidden love, family strife, and the confused longings of the birds who look on but do not understand.
