The Vancouver Sun Sunday Film Series at the Park

I've often complained, and even blogged, that the movie going experience in Vancouver is unenlightened. Which is to say though the movies may be enjoyable the theatre going experience can be bland. Happily, there are some exceptions.

The Vancouver Sun and Park Theatre run the Sunday Film Series. These events are at the unusual time of 10am and the ticket price includes a bagel or muffin with coffee or tea. There's also a guest speaker.

Now sometimes getting up Sunday after a great Saturday night can be painful, and sometimes the guest speaker doesn't add much, and bagels with cream cheese and cheap coffee aren't hard to find. But this event in the lobby of the venerable Park Theatre has a comfortable Sunday morning vibe I quite enjoy. Compared with fast-food feel and cattle car atmosphere of many theatres, it's downright civilized. And watching a movie in the morning and then having almost the entire day ahead of you is downright cool.

Sadly, the Sunday Film Series doesn't seem to be on a regular schedule. I rely on my movie podcasting co-host Marina and the Vancouver Movie Fans Meetup Group to keep me informed of upcoming movies.

Our last Movie Meetup Sunday Series outing was 500 Days of Summer last Sunday (My thoughts on 500 Days of Summer).
