Final Details for 4/25 LITS Screening in Vancouver

We posted an update last week about Colin Cooper's plans to screen his edit of the LITS Over Victoria show in Vancouver last week and now have the final details for the event. From Colin -
The screening will be held at the Pacific Cinematheque in downtown Vancouver on Saturday, April 25th @ 2:00pm (doors open at 1:30pm). My time-of-day choices were limited and in order to secure what I felt was the best technical set-up of all available options, I had to settle for an afternoon slot. The Cinematheque is located at 1131 Howe Street (between Helmcken and Davie) and is easily accessible by public transit (various buses stop directly in front of the building).

The show runs approximately 2 hours and 12 minutes. The venue must be completely emptied by 4:45pm or the management will administer a fierce spanking. Thus, any post-screening mingling will have to be moved outside of the main doors.

The screen's diagonal measurement is approximately 36 feet. The sound will almost certainly be stereo (i.e., no surround). I had a tech screening yesterday and both audio and visual components were quite tasty.

Venue capacity is only 200 and the event will not be ticketed. Interested parties should contact me at mr.g.westlake@gmail.com in order to secure a seat. Emails should include your name and the number of people in your party (including yourself). I will respond to confirm your reservation. Those who have already made contact in response to the previous Hotline posting will hear from me shortly to confirm attendance. In the event that reservations do not fill the venue, walk-ins will be welcome at the doors.

For those who are curious, Colin is the person Trent mentioned in the Digg Dialogg interview with Kevin Rose that was put online earlier today. As a reminder, the event is COMPLETELY FREE. Once again, many thanks go out to Colin for his time and dedication with this!
