“Going to The Cinematheque is the closest thing to visiting Manhattan without leaving Vancouver …. Its program is as innovative and entertaining as any you’ll find in New York.” David Spaner, The Province

“For the true cinema lover who appreciates foreign and independent retrospectives, restorations, experimental films, and rare or obscure works, the Cinematheque is a necessity.” Craig Takeuchi, The Georgia Straight

“Cinémathèques now take on a job parallel to what museums do with painting and sculpture.  They assemble, sort, analyze and exhibit the culture of the world.”  Robert Fulford, The Globe & Mail
