Dr. No

Last week, I blogged about the 007 Reloaded: Bond Opening Gala and Fundraiser on Friday, August 23. The gala celebrates 50 years of Bond films as well as serving as an important fundraiser for the Vancouver International Film Festival Society.

Going hand in hand with the gala is a screening of 20 Bond films from August 24 to September 4 at Vancity Theatre.

In addition to single tickets, special 4-ticket packs for $32, 6-ticket packs for $45, and all-in packs for $99 will be on offer for Bond fans old and new.

The last night of the festival is reserved for one person’s favourite Bond film, to be introduced by the lucky prize winner and screened on September 5 at 7 pm. A ballot box will be available at Vancity Theatre, or you can email your pick to Bond@viff.org. The winner will also score tickets to a film of their choice.

A friendly Bond Quiz Night will be held between screenings on August 31 at 8:40 pm. Entry is free with purchase of a VIFC membership ($12; includes a free movie ticket to Vancity Theatre’s regularly scheduled programming). And while you’re at Vancity, don’t forget to check out a special James Bond exhibit curated by Bond expert and chief memorabilia collector Murray Gillespie (@JamesBondExpert on Twitter).
