The C.R. Avery Orchestra & Victory On East Hastings

The C.R. Avery Orchestra & Victory On East Hastings

7:30pm - Tuesday, Jan 25, 2022

After the ghostly ushers from ancient Galway have lead you to your seat and the time-machine-lights of the legendary Rio Theatre have dimmed, you’ll know that you're about to witness something special going down.

From the historic Rio’s lower level to the box-seat balcony, the audience will be engrossed and electrified by the cut-throat Gregorian sound of violins swelling from the live orchestra that will lead us all to a Bohemian Central evening of Success’s outskirts-of-society secret recipe.

VICTORY ON EAST HASTINGS is a feature film that transcends the ordinary ‘night out on the town’, with C.R. Avery narrating the tale with a large orchestra backing him and performing the score live.

All bets are off good people, and cinema is about to have an affair with a rock n' roll revival show. Boom to the zoom Mo’fo’s, here comes the ultimate love letter to East Van.
