On November 4, 2012, downtown’s Empire Granville 7 was added to a long list of recent movie theatre closures, including the Denman, Ridge, East Van, and Empire Oakridge. We reflect on the recent Granville 7 closing and the case of Vancouver’s vanishing cinemas. We look at the history of the Granville 7 and discuss why so many cinemas are closing with CiTR Arts Director Maegan Thomas (Host/Producer of The Arts Report) and local film critics Ray Tomlin and Jason Whyte.

Do you have any fond memories of the Granville 7? Or other movie theatres in Vancouver that have closed?
