The Rio Theater in Vancouver offers a special NYE excursion that begins with a Stanley Kubrick double feature. On the Billboard, the beautifully remastered (2018) is the mother of all space movies Kubrick’s 1968 masterpiece 2001: A Space Odyssey (13:15). After that (truly a difficult job) is Kubrick’s last film – the weird sex cult head scraper Eyes Wide Shut from 1999 (16:20).

Once Kubrick’s weight is over, you can return for a musical palette-cleansing compliment from the uplifting The Talking Heads: Stop Making Sense (19.45) and the downright silly and demented Rocky Horror Picture Show at 6 p.m. 22.00

“We are thrilled that Bonnie Henry has confirmed that seated, cinematic and theatrical venues are not a source of viral transmission, and we are excited to continue to provide you with a safe haven for entertainment and socially distant fun with a capacity of 50 percent, “the venerable East Van cinema states in a release.

If you choose to stay in the NEW, but feel like a flick to push the obscurity away the next day, head to Rio on January 1, 2022 for the annual New Year’s Hangover Movie Marathon featuring Monty Python and the Holy Grail, Walk Hard: The Dewey Cox Story, The Big Lebowski and Pulp Fiction.

You can get a $ 25 day pass for a full day of movies.

Due to the changed public health restrictions related to COVID-19, please contact the individual venues and organizers for the latest event info.
