The Vic Theatre: The Movie Man

$13.33, 19+

An eccentric entrepreneur looks back on his life’s work ––owning and operating an idiosyncratic multiplex cinema in the forest of Northern Ontario. The film shines a spotlight on Highlands Cinemas, a charming independent movie theater struggling to survive in the modern era. At the heart of the story is Keith Stata, the theater’s passionate and eccentric owner, who understands the power of that collective joy and who goes to extraordinary lengths to keep his beloved establishment afloat.

Destination Greater Victoria is honoured to be based on the traditional territory of the Lekwungen-speaking peoples of the Songhees Nation and the Esquimalt Nation, whose historical relationships with the land continue to this day.
