The Cinematheque has always been committed to providing the best possible experience for our audiences. We take pride in presenting a diverse range of films from around the world, and in fostering a welcoming and inclusive environment for everyone who enters.

That’s why we are excited to be able to close for two months this spring to renovate our dated washroom spaces. These changes are part of our ongoing efforts to make our facility more accessible and welcoming to all members of our community.

The renovation will involve significant changes, including the installation of new fixtures, sinks, and stalls, as well as changes to the layout and design of the washroom space itself to be fully accessible and gender-neutral. We’re working closely with our architects and designer to ensure that the new washrooms are accessible, safe, and welcoming for all. Oh, and they’ll look pretty darn spiffy, too. 

During the closure, we’ve been working hard behind the scenes to prepare for our reopening, including programming for May and June, strategic planning with our staff and board, and taking this opportunity to make some fun improvements to our lobby as well. 

We know you are missing seeing films at The Cinematheque (we are too!), and we thank you for your patience during this closure period. We believe that these changes are an important step forward for our organization, and we hope that you’ll join us in supporting this effort to create a more inclusive and accessible space for everyone. 

We look forward to welcoming you back to The Cinematheque in May!
