The Rio Theatre’s 15th Anniversary Party

Can you believe it’s been 15 years…? Neither can we!
To celebrate our incredible run of being Vancouver’s favourite independently owned and operated cinema and live event space, we’re throwing a big ol’ party…. And you’re invited!

Come join us and reminisce about some of the many crazy adventures over the past 15 years – from going head-to-head (and winning) against former Premiere Christy Clark and BC’s ridiculously antiquated liquor laws, our awe-inspiring community-supported crowd-finding campaigns to #LightUptheRio and even #SavetheRio, to the fun times we had LARP-ing as the Andy Kaufman-esque #RioSportsBar – and everything in between!

We’ve assembled a who’s-who of some of our favourite local performers to make the night special, and are keeping the doors open late for a killer dance party featuring DJ Mark Woodyard!
