From the Vancouver International Film Festival:

VINTAGE VANCOUVER: ARCHIVAL FILMS FROM THE VANCOUVER CITY ARCHIVES

Sunday, November 18, 2:00 pm

Using 50 years of material, local historian Michael Kluckner guides us on a moving image journey into Vancouver’s past. With musical accompaniment by jazz pianist Wayne Stewart, this year’s highlights include home movies, park board films, experimental films, and on-the-fly documentaries.

Get a glimpse of 1950s Chinatown in Kodachrome. Watch the construction and opening of the Stanley Park Railway in 1964. Reminisce upon long-forgotten neon. Indulge in 1970s tourist attractions. Witness a 1981 protest against a controversial film on Granville Street.

Spend an afternoon with us and rediscover this great city by sampling a bit of its history.
