77. Go see a film at the Vancity Theatre

So a couple of weeks ago I finally saw a film at the cushy (if small) Vancity Theatre during the DOXA Documetary Film Festival. We saw "The One Percent" . As Wikipedia puts it, the film is "a 2006 documentary about the growing wealth gap between America's wealthy elite and the citizenry on the whole. It was created by Jamie Johnson, heir to the Johnson & Johnson fortune." The film was really interesting and thought provoking and then afterwards we got to do a Q&A with Jamie Johnson via skype! Definitely a great first experience both with the DOXA festival and the Vancity Theatre.
