The Board of Directors of the Al Whittle Theatre / Acadia Cinema Co-op regrets to announce that our Honorary Director Al Whittle passed away on January 23 at age 91. We extend our condolences to his family and all those close to him. Al was the face of our theatre for decades and played a crucial role in enabling its transfer to our member-owned cooperative. There is a link to his obituary below.
We urge you to watch this short film from 2013, in which Al recalls his career as the theatre operator. https://alwhittletheatre.ca/who-s-al-whittle/.
As of April 27, 2021, the theatre is not available to rent due to the province-wide lock down. Please contact us regarding rental opportunities after May 20.
After May 20 we hope that Covid 19 restrictions will allow the theatre to be open for socially distanced audiences for up to half our capacity. With social distancing in place, the current capacity is between 35-50 depending on the size of the bubbled groups attending an event. Masks are required in the theatre unless you are eating or drinking. Feel free to bring bottled water and snacks to the event you are attending, or stop at the Just Us counter and pick up your favorite coffee drink or cookie.
Please address any questions about theatre policies surrounding Covid 19 to firstname.lastname@example.org . Hope that we see you at the theatre soon.
