For both the young and young-at-heart, Throwback Cinema presents the movies of your childhood, back on the big screen at the Revue. Hosted and curated by local favourite and writer Crystal-Rose Madore, we showcase the best of family and kid-friendly cinema from the 1970s-1990s, from blockbusters to cult classics. Join us every month as we rediscover the movies that made you fall in love with cinema for the first time!


Crystal-Rose Madore is a local writer and good omen. Active on twitter as @jodiesjumpsuit, she’s been described as, “that mysterious neighbour who owns good books and tells great stories.” Ms. Madore started Throwback Cinema in 2017 with one guiding principle: if she could re-create her childhood experience of going to the movies for the kids of today, what movies should they see? The result has been wildly successful with families, young adults, and the young-at-heart.
