The Revue is a unique Toronto cultural treasure with a vibrant historic past and an unwavering community commitment. We are dedicated to presenting programs which appeal to wide-ranging audiences of different age groups, diverse backgrounds and varying interests that reflect the ever-changing local community and the Greater Toronto Area.
The Revue creates community by bringing people together as we strongly believe in the power of shared experience. Our presentations engage, entertain and elevate as we strive to bring the best of independent, cultural, Canadian, documentary, current and classic cinema to our big screen.
We believe it’s our role to offer the community something different, whether it is to ensure great films from the past are not forgotten, important but less commercially successful films are properly recognized and special events from a range of cultures and interests have a venue for exhibition.
The Revue provides opportunities for people to discover, explore and learn through film, arts and culture. We program over a thousand screenings per year. Approximately one third are enhanced events which range from specially curated film series, multi-cultural film festivals, Q&A’s, panel discussions and conversations with experts, co-productions with talented exhibitors, artists and musicians, and rentals where the Revue provides the space and the staffing to support outside organizations (often not-for-profit) to run their own event, screening, or fundraiser.
In 2016, over 20,000 guests were inspired by these enhanced events, our team worked with over 120 organizations and community partners and oversaw educational programs in which 1749 students from 14 local schools participated.
