Is the Documentary Coming Back to the Monarch?
We’re going to end this story where it all began.Since the premiere screenings of Your Cinema Needs You ended at Medicine Hat’s Monarch Theatre in mid-February, this feature-length documentary about Canada’s oldest surviving cinema has been on a surprisingly successful international film festival tour. From Los Angeles to Tokyo to Stockholm, Your Cinema Needs You has picked up over a dozen official selections, nominations, and screenings across 8 countries (to date). With this tour only 50% complete and now expected to run into the summer we began to discuss what we could do back home to keep this momentum going? The Monarch 1911 Society is now deep in renovations and the documentary’s screening schedule / release plans are only getting more complicated, but we found a window that will work. From May 30 to June 2, Your Cinema Needs You will return to the Monarch Theatre for its final local shows to celebrate this international run and to mark the end of this insane ride that began in June 2021. Tickets (which will include evening and matinee shows) will go on sale this Wednesday, May 8. Full details to release this week on this site.
