CLICK HERE to purchase movie tickets for the screenings of “Your Cinema Needs You” at the Monarch Theatre at 7 PM on February 14th, 15th, 16th, and 17th.After more than 2 years in production, this feature-length documentary about one of Canada’s most underrated cinematic landmarks is back by popular demand to screen within the very cinema at the heart of this story, the Monarch Theatre in Medicine Hat, Alberta.Following the 7 sold out premiere shows in Medicine Hat, these new February screenings of the documentary are an exclusive opportunity to return to the Monarch Theatre since it closed its doors, 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!Book your tickets now to experience the start of the Monarch Theatre’s next chapter.
