The Revue Film Society is run by a small group of volunteer board members who provide goverance to the nonprofit.

The Revue staff and RFS board members ensure consistent, diverse, and community-oriented programming at 400 Roncesvalles.

We need community help now more than ever to continue our work.

The Revue Cinema has been a cornerstone of Toronto’s film culture for over a century. As Canada’s oldest operating cinema, people have met their future spouses waiting in line, found their new favourite film on a random weekday night screening, and participated in endless debates over top ten lists. The Revue Film Society, a dedicated nonprofit, has been at the heart of this journey since 2006, ensuring that our historic venue remains a vital cultural hub for the community.

But the future is uncertain.

In late June of this year we were faced with the threat of threatened eviction. Fortunately we were able to procure a court injunction that will allow us to continue until at least the end of October

We need your help.

To continue our mission and ensure that the Revue Cinema can navigate whatever challenges lie ahead, we need your support. Our “Projecting into the Future” campaign aims to raise funds for future expenses, including legal fees, so that we can keep the magic of cinema alive in Roncesvalles.

By contributing to our campaign, you’re not just donating money—you’re investing in the future of film culture in Toronto. You’re helping us preserve a unique space where stories come to life and where community thrives.

Join us in this journey. Together, we can project into the future and ensure that the Revue Cinema remains a cherished part of our community.
