Hamilton AM


The Westdale Cinema Group is a not-for-profit organization led by volunteers who have come together to purchase and to restore the Westdale Theatre. It opened in 1935 in the heart of Westdale Village and is Hamilton’s last remaining, intact, continuously operated, movie theatre. WCG Board members Fred Fuchs and Graham Crawford will describe how this project came to be known as an “urban barn raising” because of the tremendous support from and involvement by the broader community. They will share information about the restoration and the planned programming for the theatre. The 82 year old theatre is scheduled to reopen in July of 2018.
