The C.R. Avery Orchestra & Victory On East Hastings

After the ghostly ushers from ancient Galway have lead you to your seat and the time-machine-lights of the legendary Rio Theatre have dimmed, you’ll know that you’re about to witness something special going down.

From the historic Rio’s lower level to the box-seat balcony, the audience will be engrossed and electrified by the cut-throat Gregorian sound of violins swelling from the live orchestra that will lead us all to a Bohemian Central evening of Success’s outskirts-of-society secret recipe.

VICTORY ON EAST HASTINGS is a feature film that transcends the ordinary ‘night out on the town’, with C.R. Avery narrating the tale with a large orchestra backing him and performing the score live.

All bets are off good people, and cinema is about to have an affair with a rock n’ roll revival show. Boom to the zoom Mo’fo’s, here comes the ultimate love letter to East Van.

Our of an abundance of caution, the previously scheduled performances of “Victory on East Hastings” on January 11 & 18 have been canceled. Ticket-holders for those two performances are welcome and encouraged to attend the event on January 25, or receive a refund. For further information, please email <[email protected]>.
