DIM-SUMthing wicked this way comes..
Schema's first installment of C-Town Summer Cinema this past Sunday, "A Dim Sum-mer Nite's Dream" was a great success! The team did a kickass job, working tirelessly to create a fun, relevant and innovative event. Countless hours were put into planning every detail possible, and boy, were the results well worth all the hard work!!
Great job, Julia!
Read full review after the jump!
Schema's first installment of C-Town Summer Cinema ... Great Success!
According to the 200+ people who basked in the "electric shadows" of the outdoor cinema, Schema's pilot-presentation of "A Dim Sum-mer Nite's Dream" was an unprecendented success! The volunteer team did a kickass job and we still can't believe they threw Vancouver's FIRST-EVER public film screening with an outdoor beer garden!
Definitely didn't go wrong with the movie choice (kudos to Sandra). The 1970's Kung Fu classic had the crowd cheering -- perfectly fitting the open sky ambiance of the authentic Chinese stone courtyard, lit by over fifty tea light lanterns. This was Vancouver Chinatown's best outdoor summer event yet! Wouldn't have surprised us if someone kicked off the wall and flew home ...
About 250 to 300 people passed through the courtyard from beginning to end, with the highest attendance at around 9:30 PM, when approximately 200 people were mingling in the courtyard and having a ball.
A HUGE thanks to everyone that came early and stayed late to help with the set-up and clean-up. Special thanks to Paul Pahal for his invaluable assistance, the DJs and also our team of beer girls!
to the City of Vancouver Downtown Eastside Revitalization, and to our sponsors:
Channel M, for promotional support; CBC Television, for generously providing the projection equipment; the Vancouver Chinese Cultural Centre; and the Powell Street Starbucks for providing coffee.
And also our security, Primcorp, and the City of Vancouver Police for making an extra effort to ensure the event ran without incident.
Last, but not least, special recognition to our Fashion Editor, Sandra Lo, who came up with the event's creative direction, and especially to our Special Event Coordinator, Julia Lin whose 4 months of tireless planning and effort made this event possible!
