That Movie Poster Type

Excited to have a theatrical poster for our little film. This photo was taken at the Staples House in West Vancouver featuring Darci who appears in the film as one of our Unhappy Hipsters. We plan to do a series of theatrical posters and this one will be for the Toronto and Vancouver redux happening in August. We may reserve some for sale in our web shop so stay tuned to our Twitter feed for the latest. When you get a theatrical poster you are unofficially given license to use that classic film poster typography which makes things feel really official. We’ll soon be sharing exciting news about new cities to add to our screenings page along with two extended theatrical releases in Toronto and Vancouver. Thank you all for coming out to see our film, please spread the word and give us some shine on your blogs and Facebook etc. Thank you all from Mike, Gavin & Leah.

Vancouver Redux August 3-9

Update: Tickets are now on sale here.

We’ve been invited back to the plush Vancity Theatre for more screenings in August. Thank you all for making this a reality, we couldn’t be more thrilled. The response to our little film has been intense. We really wanted this film to reach people, all people not just architects and designers and this is what’s happening. If you couldn’t get a ticket during our July run or know a friend that “really ought to see it”, here’s your chance. Will be posting live ticket link shortly. Hot popcorn and cold beer at the bar. Thank you Vancouver!

Opening Weekend

This has been an incredible weekend for our film in Toronto and Vancouver. The response has been overwhelming, sold out screenings and lineups around the block. Thank you all so much! Thrilled Coast Modern subject Douglas Coupland could catch Sunday’s screening in Toronto (he’s a busy man). If you missed the shows this weekend fear not, Toronto has a final screening this Thursday at 9PM at the incredible Bloor Hot Docs Cinema and Vancouver has 7PM screenings until Thursday this week at the VIFF Theatre. We could not be happier. Catch us in Toronto and Vancouver before we’re gone! Exciting announcements coming shortly.

Vancouver July 6-12

For those who missed our sold out DOXA shows, we’ve got a full week in Vancouver at the plush Vancity Theatre July 6 through 13. Super proud to have a theatrical release in our home town! We’ll be doing some Q&A at some of the nights so do come out. PS, they have cold beer at the bar…

Tickets now available online! Directors Michael Bernard and Gavin Froome will be at the first two screenings. Act quickly as both screenings sold out during the DOXA film festival. Note that if you need to purchase a VanCity Theatre Membership your purchase comes with a ticket, so becoming a member only costs a dollar.

Toronto July 6-12

New shows added for August!

Coast Modern will be screening in Toronto at the Bloor Cinema July 6 through 12. We have 4 screenings and are really excited to show our film at the Bloor. Tickets now available online.

Staples Residence

The CoMo team was invited to a party at one of West Vancouver’s secret treasures on Friday night. An Erickson/Massey home designed by lead architect Bruno Freschi in 1966. The 2600 square foot West Coast delight sits perfectly on an epic 1/2 acre waterfront lot with unobstructed views of Howe Sound in West Vancouver. The Staples House is a sister house to the more well know Smith House down the road near Lighthouse Park. We test drove the house on Friday night in a social context and it really was amazing. We all truly felt ‘alive’ and connected. What ‘executive’ monster house can do that? The lovely owner is searching for the right buyer who won’t demolish the house and understands what good architecture can do. Surely there are some ballers out there with some taste? Info and photos below.

Total Sell Outs

Big thank you to everyone who came out for our 2 sold out shows in Vancouver as part of the DOXA Film Festival. We are thrilled our film is resonating with people and that we’re hearing it’s more than just an architectural love letter. We’ll be doing theatrical releases in Vancouver and Toronto in July to start so if you missed us at DOXA you can see us then. Stay tuned to our social channels for official news releases in the coming days. Thank you Vancouver!
