Al Whittle

The Board of Directors of the Al Whittle Theatre / Acadia Cinema Co-op regrets to announce that our Honorary Director Al Whittle passed away on January 23 at age 91. We extend our condolences to his family and all those close to him. Al was the face of our theatre for decades and played a crucial role in enabling its transfer to our member-owned cooperative. There is a link to his obituary below.
We urge you to watch this short film from 2013, in which Al recalls his career as the theatre operator.

Covid Restrictions

UPDATE December 2021: Due to new covid restrictions, social distancing will be required in the theatre for all events starting Dec 17, 2021. Capacity at the theatre will be reduced as we will only be able to use five out of our ten rows, and there will need to be three empty seats between “bubbled” groups within each row.

Masks are required indoors.

Proof of double vaccination is required to enter the theatre for all non-essential events.

Please address any questions about theatre policies surrounding Covid 19 to . Hope that we see you at the theatre soon.
