Al Whittle

The Board of Directors of the Al Whittle Theatre / Acadia Cinema Co-op was informed this morning 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/. Less than a year ago he was featured in an article in the local Advertiser.

Covid Restrictions

Please note that current restrictions due to Covid 19 have curtailed private rentals until February 7, 2021, as we are not allowed to host events for “social” gatherings. Gatherings are still allowed for faith-based organizations, weddings or funerals. We will consider gatherings for under 10 people. Please contact manager@alwhittletheatre.ca for more information.

We are hoping these restrictions will be lifted, and we are still putting holds on dates for private rentals after Feb 7. Stay posted for more information.
