One of Vancouver’s oldest and most cherished movie theatres is about to be gutted and turned into a private, for-profit fitness facility. Situated in the heart of Kitsilano, the Hollywood Theatre has been one of a shrinking list of independent movie houses. Its low admission has made it possible for students and other low income patrons to go to the movies.
Sadly, Vision Vancouver, the party of Developers, does not recognize any of the above. When the private developer sought approval from City Hall, it obtained the green light almost immediately.
COPE urges its members to attend the Rally to Save the Hollywood Theatre this Sunday, November 17th at 12:00pm at St. James Hall, West 10th and Trutch.
