City Beats: Lost Vancouver from the ‘40s to the ‘60s
Friday, May 30 | 7:00 pm | Vancity Theatre
Admission: $12.50

As B.C. marks a century and a half as a province, it is just over 100 years since the first film of our city was made. Most of the early films were made to promote the city to visitors, and there is little record of our daily lives. But there were rare portraits made by insiders, those who lived and worked in the city, in small film societies or with the newly spawned television film crews. Three finely-crafted short works take the unique vision of each team of artists to reflect a time that shaped Vancouver—the post-war boom years from the 1940s to the 1960s — and reveal a city that is almost unrecognizable to us today.
