Cinema Sunday

ALL AGES WELCOME! Cinema Sunday is an afternoon film program for children and their families.

In celebration of Canada’s big 150 (or sesquicentennial), Cinema Sunday patriotically presents “Made in Canada,” a yearlong engagement with family films hailing from the True North! Each month, we’ll screen an all-ages movie that showcases Canada’s extraordinary, diverse talents — both in front of and behind the camera — as well as the cities, landscapes, and cultures that make this country our home.

Films will be introduced by Vancouver film history teacher and critic Michael van den Bos.
