Last fall The Bookshelf launched a new programming initiative in the cinema called Sunday Mornings at the Bookshelf. On the first Sunday of each month from October to April, we gathered on Sunday morning for coffee and baked treats before watching a new film that was a total surprise prior to screening. The film was followed by a moderated discussion and Q&A.
Tickets were sold as passes for the entire series and were sold out within days of going on sale.
To accommodate the overwhelming number of requests for more series tickets we have added a second, early afternoon screening. Series passes for the newly dubbed, Sunday Secret Cinema Series will go on sale Tuesday August 8 at 9 am. Tickets will be sold IN PERSON ONLY UNTIL NOON. After 12pm, tickets will also be sold over the phone. As many of the cinephiles who attended last year's series will be returning there are just a few morning tickets left, but there are many tickets available for the afternoon session that will include pre-show coffee and snacks and the added feature of wine and beer tastings.
The series will commence on Sunday Oct 15. The following screenings will be on the first Sunday of each month, ending on April 8, 2018.
Tickets for the seven film series are $140 plus HST.
Many of last year's Sunday Series patrons said that it was the highlight of their filmgoing year.
We look forward to greeting many newcomers to this newly expanded and excitng series.
