Waldorf Movie nights, Last bit of PuSH and DTES Women's March
Oye hoy, Vancity.
We're into the final stretch of January and we'll keep you buzzing 'til the very last day. You'll be mighty impressed at this week's top three fave picks including movies, plays, marches and even some biking.
Bee Vancity TOP 3 FAVE events:
1. Day For Night: Film In The Afternoon
Sun Jan 30 3PM | Waldorf Hotel | Free
Every Sunday, at the Waldorf's lower-level clubhouse you can spend the afternoon in the dark with friends and a stiff cocktail to watch some of the world's great films. DAY FOR NIGHT presents an intimate environment to share in a love of classics and eccentrics from Hollywood, documentaries from all over, NFB shorts and Canadian television, and rarely-screened art films. This Sunday DAY FOR NIGHT, Vancouver is Awesome and Talk Green Vancouver present a green film screening of documentary No Impact Man. A Manhattan family decides to completely eliminate his personal impact on the environment for the next year. It means eating vegetarian, buying
only local food, andturning off the refrigerator. It also means no elevators, no television, no cars, busses, or airplanes, no toxic cleaning products, no electricity, no material consumption, and no garbage. Film begins post-brunch at 3:00 PM. After a year of consultations, meetings and research, Vancouver has drafted a plan to become the Greenest City in the world by 2020. Following the film join in the conversation, share your input and priorities about the Greenest City goals.
2. Hard Core Logo: LIVE
Jan 26 – Feb 8 | 8PM | Rickshaw Theatre | $25
Another great show from our friends at PuSh. This time we follow Joe Dick, the fast talking, hard rocking, gutter punk idealist who had his moment of glory fronting the legendary but now defunct Vancouver band Hard Core Logo. Living somewhere between East Hastings and a dream, Joe decides it’s time to drag the band back together for one last, ill-fated tour featuring original music by D.O.A.’s Joe “Shithead” Keithley. And you know it’s going to be fun when the show comes with this warning: “contains foul language and spitting”
3. Start of the 20th Annual DTES Womens Memorial March for Missing and Murdered Women
Jan 30 - Feb 14 | various locations | Free
On Sun Jan 30 the Memorial will start with a Women’s sweatlodge ceremony at the DTES Community Garden, which will be followed by a feast at the Aboriginal Front Door. Events will then occur almost daily uptil the march on Feb 14th, including a Poetry Night, Crafts Fairs, and Film Screenings.
