007 Reloaded Gala poster

Actors come and go but Bond – like diamonds – lives on forever. His biennial escapades stretch back half a century, all the way to the Cuban Missile Crisis, and span nine US Presidents. Join Vancity Theatre and VIFF in celebrating 50 years of James Bond at an exclusive Opening Night Gala for their 007 Reloaded Retrospective and poster exhibition.

Dress sexy (bow tie optional) and party to the sounds of Bond’s greatest hits. The night will include martinis (shaken, not stirred), food, the first look at a blockbuster memorabilia exhibition (courtesy of collector and 007 expert Murray Gillespie), a silent auction, and plenty of surprises. Opening Gala proceeds will benefit the Vancouver International Film Festival Society.

007 Reloaded Opening Gala + Fundraiser
Date: Friday, August 23, 7:15 film screening; 8:45 Gala
Venue: Vancity Theatre, 1181 Seymour Street, Vancouver
Tickets: $50, available online; includes screening of Bond’s first movie, Dr. No (first 170 tickets only)
