Unless otherwise noted, everyone attending screenings at the Vancity Theatre must be aged 19 or older and have a valid Vancity Theatre Membership Card. The membership costs $2, and is valid for one year.

Why? Similar to the Vancouver International Film Festival, most of the films we screen are unclassified (not rated) and, under B.C. law, in order to see unclassified films you must be a registered member of a film society. Also, Vancity Theatre is a licensed premise. Filmgoers can enjoy a glass of beer or wine before or after our screenings. Our license allows us to serve alcohol to Vancity Theatre members over 19 years of age only. We do not serve alcohol when screening films rated for youth.
