Movie Passes!

June 25th, 2015

ETA:  All our passes are now claimed. Thanks!


We have advanced passes to SELF/LESS, starring Ben Kingsley and Ryan Reynolds. It’s about a wealthy man dying from cancer who undergoes a procedure that transfers his consciousness into the body of a healthy young man. And you just know things’ll get weird…

Each pass is good for two people for the screening on Wednesday July 8th, 7pm at the Scotiabank theatre. If you’d like one, leave us a note here, or call/email us, or y’know, drop by.

First come first served, while the passes last.
