Encore Screenings of the Monarch Documentary
CLICK HERE to purchase tickets for the encore screenings of “Your Cinema Needs You” at the Monarch Theatre in Medicine Hat, Alberta at 7 PM on January 4th, 5th, and 6th, 2024.After more than 2 years in production, the feature-length documentary about one of Canada’s most underrated cinematic landmarks is finally ready to debut within the very cinema at the heart of this story, the Monarch Theatre in Medicine Hat, Alberta. Following the 3 night sold out premiere event in December 2023, the encore screenings in January are an exclusive opportunity to return to the Monarch Theatre for the first time since its closing, experience the largely untold history of one of Canada’s last surviving cinemas of the silent era from within its auditorium, and be among the very first to see “Your Cinema Needs You” before its Canada-wide release later in 2024. Directed by Luke Fandrich, the 2 hour and 15 minute documentary traces the origins of the Monarch Theatre, the rise and fall of its direct competitors, and the cinema’s evolution over 112 years since it first opened its doors on December 21, 1911. “Your Cinema Needs You” features newly uncovered images, artifacts, and exclusive interviews from individuals spanning the Monarch’s history, including former usherettes, managers, projectionists, moviegoers, and more! This will be the final opportunity to view “Your Cinema Needs You” at the Monarch Theatre before the cinema once again goes dark for an extended time to continue with planned renovations.Book your tickets now to experience the start of the Monarch Theatre’s next chapter.
