New, Digital Season awaits!

Reel Alternatives will start its new season in a brand new medium: DIGITAL!!

Thanks to the good folks at the Integris Credit Union Community Foundation, we have purchased hi-end digital sound and projection equipment that will easily impress you.
That, along with our storng line-up of movies for our seventh season....and, well, its time to pick up your season pass.

Reel Alternatives will now operate out of the Small Auditorium at Nechako Valley SS on Bute Ave. They have a massive wide screen that will work well with our new state of the art system.

Film was becoming too onerous, too expensive and with industry going digital fast, it was a good time to jump in!

We plan on showcasing student films from around the north and will also endeavour to show more award-winning independent productions from around the world.

The first will be the multi-award winning feature documentary The Cove, a special presentation on BC Rivers Day (Sunday, Sept 26th, time to be announced soon).

Check out the movie list for our first half on our home page, it all starts with The Trotsky on Monday, Sept 20 @ 7 pm.
And as always, donations for the food bank are welcome.

Grab a friend and come check out a Reel Movie!!

New Season coming soon!

Reel Alternatives new season will kick of at the Grand Reo Theatre with the critically-aclaimed movie Is Anybody There on Monday, Sept 21st @ 7 pm.
A hit at the Toronto Int'l Film Festival, Is Anybody There? is a tender portrait of friendship between an inquisitive ten-year old boy and a retired magician (Michael Caine). Precocious and curious lad named Edward (Bill Milner, Son of Rambow), has a less-than-idyllic home that happens to double as a hospice for the aged.
This promises to be a great movie to start our seventh season!
Check our web page at for links to previews and reviews about this drama/comedy/.
And watch for our flyer (and website) in various stores around Vanderhoof for details on our Fall movies!
See you at the show!

Wow - what a film!

Mongol played at the Grand Reo Theatre this past Monday to a crowd of about 70 spectators. I think I speak for most of the 70 people when I say that Mongol was an amazing feast for the eyes. I heard all the chatter about the movie in the lobby and outside after the movie, most of it good.

I was glad to see so many people out for this movie event. And many new faces too! We hope to see everyone again and more to see The Duchess in January. 

I'd love to hear your comments about Mongol. What did you think of the movie?

MOGOL is coming!!

Next Monday - November 17 MONGOL will be here in Vanderhoof for all to see. It is sure to be a good night at the movies. Love, betrayal, war, death, and beautiful scenery - what more can you ask for?

Remember to bring a friend with you to see MONGOL. We want to fill the theatre for this movie. Reel Alternatives wants to continue bringing  Vanderhoof new movies, but we can't unless people come and see them!

Check out the movie posters around town, and mark the date on your calendar. Call and book your babysitter now!

Looking forward to seeing you all there. 7:00pm at the beautiful Grand Reo Theatre!

After the movie, please come back to this blog and leave your comments. We always want to hear from you.

Reel Alternatives Blog up and running!

Welcome Movie Goers to the Reel Alternatives Blog!!

We are really excited about this blog. Our goal is to bring you information and discussion about past, present and future movies to be shown by Reel Alternatives.

We hope you enjoyed THE VISITOR that showed in October. I hear it was a good movie (I missed it at the theatre). Thanks for supporting Reel Alternatives!

Coming up on November 17, 2008 is MONGOL (7:00pm Grand Reo Theatre).
Visit our website for all the movie details: 
I think that MONGOL will be a pretty spectacular movie to watch on the big screen. The scenery is supposed to be fantastic. The movie will have some violence in it (what would you expect from a movie about Genghis Khan?) but it is also a love story, so is sure to please everyone.

See you on Nov 17 at the Grand Reo. Until the next post - sign up to receive notices of our blog postings.

Cheers - Reel Alternatives Blogger
