A couple of months ago when we posted about the impending demise of Festival Cinemas we got an outpouring of concern from this city’s many film lovers. So we hope that it won’t be hard for the Revue Film Society to raise the $20,000 it needs to save the west-end theatre.
They’re looking for 700 people to donate at least $20 in the next month so they can take over operations of the theatre. “The cost of a film at a big box movie theatre is $12.50, which is where we will all have to go if the Revue is demolished. Add in popcorn and drinks and you’re peeling a fresh 20,” the group writes in an e-mail we recently received.
