It would be a shame for the Hollywood to go out this way. Good luck to the faithful fans to help keep it going. I made 2 visits here, saw a movie in ‘08. Got the grand tour from Vince as well.

The Hollywood is showing what may be its final film. You Can’t Take it With You, playing 20-22 November 2013. The property owner is then shutting the doors as he plans to gut the interior of this Heritage B listed building and lease it to a fitness centre. But it’s still not too late! Visit http://savethehollywoodtheatre.com/ to find out what you can do. Let’s try to save it as an arts space for the community, where we can watch 35mm projection, digital cinema, listen to music, rehearse plays and gather!

The Hollywood is back showing movies, but more as a special event. They recently played Back To The Future and Lawrence of Arabia in 35MM.

Jason’s link is no longer active for the article in the Vancouver Sun (“Curtain closes a last time at Hollywood Theatre”), but here’s a functioning link: http://bit.ly/wk9VtK

Also, here’s a nice blog post about the Hollywood: “The Hollywood Theatre: Gone But Beloved By Many”) http://bit.ly/yemNUj

I used to enjoy going to their cheap double features on Tuesday nights with a group of friends, one of whom used to drive back up from Bellingham (> 1 hour away) to join us. It was that great of a destination.

That’s sad to hear. I hope whoever bought the Hollywood considers refurbishing and reopening it for movies and puts as much pizazz into it as was put into the Rio.

Sad to report that the Hollywood closed on Sunday, May 29th with a showing of CINEMA PARADISO and a Buster Keaton short.
