Eclectic Curiosity

Housed in a restored threatre on Vancouver’s grungy east side is a beautiful 110-seat microcinema that is ground zero for independent filmmakers from all over. Founded in 1998 by Alex MacKenzie out of frustration of the lack of screening space for new, experimental, and/or non-commercial work, the Blinding Light Cinema is, shockingly, North America’s only full-time underground screening space. It screens alternative, underground, and obscure film and video works – often to a full house six nights a week. Says MacKenzie, “A lot of the shows combine oddball industrial and educational films with experimental work, the idea being to pull the audience in with the oddball factor and then pleasantly surprise them with artists’ work they would not normally have sought out”.
