Premiere Screenings

Tickets: 4.80 CAD
Sat, 14 Nov 2020

Screenings will take place between November 14th and November 21st, one screening of 15 films (per day). Times will be announced closer to the dates. 

Tickets are $4.80 per screening circle/household (10 people recommended, to be Covid safe). 

We're still deciding on which screening service to use, but we'll figure that out soon. So far, Gathr is looking like the best choice (they're charging $175 USD per screening, which is kinda expensive... but that's ok, if it gives us the best quality). 

We'd like to make these screenings a fun event for everyone's team and their family/friends. 

Next year, we'll be back at the Revue Cinema!
