Over this past week I have discovered that the places to see films in a local independent setting wasn’t just exclusive to the theatres whose films we list weekly.
Places like Blue Bridge Repertory in Victoria may show live theatre in their home at the old Roxy but they have been known to show films as well. At this time though, showing movies at the theatre has been suspended until Blue Bridge comes up with a more specialized movie schedule.
For now, opportunities to catch a film are plentiful. The Cowichan Theatre in the Cowichan Valley shows both films and live theatre in high-definition, the Community Hall on Pender Island hosts films from time to time, and the Oak Bay Beach Hotel shows films every Tuesday.
I’ve heard Mayne Island hosted movie nights at their community hall every week but as of this time it appears to have discontinued. If anyone knows if Mayne’s movie nights are ongoing, drop me a line and I will be glad to add them to our weekly listings.
