Al Whittle

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.

With social distancing in place, the current capacity is between 35-50 depending on the size of the bubbled groups attending an event.
