Game of Thrones + Vancity Theatre + Free = WIN

Own the Throne

Winter is coming. We’ve heard this quite a bit over the last few months and with the release of “Game of Thrones” on DVD and Blu-ray earlier this week and the premiere of season two only a few weeks away (clear your calendar for April 1st), winter isn’t slowly creeping on us but coming at full speed and in full force.

So while some of us power through book two and try to squeeze out time to re-watch season one, the Vancity Theatre has taken it upon themselves to up the ante. On Friday, March 23th, the theatre will open it’s doors at 8AM and for the next 10 hours, will set about screening the entire first season with the season finale airing at 6PM. All of this, at zero cost.

If having the opportunity to check out the show on the big screen for free isn’t enough, the day will have some additional bonuses like contests, photo opportunities with the Iron Throne (eek!) and costumed characters from the show. Seriously. Double win!

More details on the event’s Facebook page and at Movie Central.

I am serisouly considering taking the day off.


  1. Whoa. Game of Thones on the big screen? That would be so totally awesome. I’m about a quarter the way through Book 2 now, so I gotta speed it up. My husband is already breezing through Book 3!

    • Me too! I started it earlier this week. Figured 4 weeks was enough time to get through it! lol

      I can’t take the Friday off to check it all out but I’m going to drop in after work. I need to get my photo taken with the Iron Throne. Like. Seriously.

    • I doing the opposite, as I’ve enjoyed the tv series so much that I’m waiting until I’ve seen all of season 2 until I start reading the second book. Experience it first as a tv series without spoiling it and then filling in all the extra details that were missing out with the book.

  2. The Bell Lightbox (here in Toronto) is having a free Game of Thrones exhibition from tomorrow through the 14th. I’m assuming this is being done to coincide with George R.R. Martin showing up next week for an “In Conversation with…” session.

    I plan on checking out the exhibition on Monday (and get my photo taken with the Iron Throne).

    • I’m hoping to have a look at some point at that exhibit, if only to see what the throne looks like as a prop vs. within the universe. The detail looks pretty exquisite.

    • Unfortunately, all the evening tickets (5 pm and later) to the Game of Thrones exhibition are already “sold out”. Living and working now in the suburbs, I don’t know when exactly I’ll be able to make it during the middle of the day. I wonder if the Lightbox would have had the same success if they charged for tickets (I wouldn’t mind paying for it). Also I wonder how many people won’t show up (always a problem when giving free tickets) and if there will be still a chance to go if there are no shows.
