Vernon's Towne Cinema is a wonderful and treasured part of our community. We support the theatre by collaborating to create Monday Night at the Arts, a fun evening with tasteful live jazz guitar, wine and social time in the lobby, followed by our featured film which begins with a short, informative introduction.
OSA is a not-for-profit society dedicated to bringing interesting independent films to the North Okanagan. Our profits support post secondary students in the Arts through annual bursaries. We welcome new volunteers.
What We've Achieved
over 500 OSA film-pass holders
about 100 films screened to date
bursaries awarded 2017, 2018 & 2019
special events hosted or co-hosted
The OSA would like to extend a big thank you to:
Shawn Bhojani of North Okanagan Accounting Services, for his great service and advice.....
During a Special Presentation of:
They Shall Not Grow Old
OSA donated $500 to Cadets
Between the first and second screening, OSA made a donation of $500 to the the Vernon Army Cadets #1705 to assist in their upcoming trip to Normandy for the 75th D-Day Anniversary.
An honour guard was present in the lobby thanks to Royal Canadian Legion Vernon Branch #25.
Active forces members, Legion members and Cadets in uniform or with ID card received discounted admission on this evening.
On September 24, 2018 we premiered a locally produced, ten minute documentary entitled The Happiness Tour prior to both of our regular Monday evening film screenings. The film’s director as well as the cast were in attendance on this special evening.
On Sunday March 4, 2018, we co-hosted (with the Vernon Towne Cinema) a Gala Evening featuring the live-streamed 90th Annual Academy Awards, wine/champagne bar, a red carpet, best-costume prizes, and more. Here are some photos from the event:
