Everything that we do at The Cinematheque, from our programming to our public resources (such as our Film Reference Library) and our education programs, seeks to enhance the culture of cinema in Vancouver.

We are a not-for-profit society that provides moviegoers from across the Lower Mainland with more choice, variety and greater access to appreciating the many different forms that cinema can take, and we frequently provide filmmakers within BC and across the country with their first chance to reach the big screen.

Providing all of this at an affordable rate cannot be sustained simply by ticket fees and membership. If you want to help us in our ongoing activities to provide essential cinema experiences that are stimulating, rewarding, entertaining and enlightening, we invite you to participate in one (or more) of many ways: by making a cash or in-kind donation, by volunteering or by promoting your business or event at our screenings or in The Cinematheque Program Guide.

We would like to say a big thank you to our many friends and supporters who have so far helped shape the experiences that our audiences have enjoyed for forty years.
