Secret Cinema on the Rooftop! (CANCELLED)

Sat, June 15 / 9 pm
Artspace Rooftop (6th floor, 100 Arthur St.)
$10 Admission / Limited capacity event!

We are very sorry, but our Secret Cinema on the Rooftop! event on Saturday, June 15 at 9pm has been CANCELLED.

In doing our due diligence in working to obtain both a Social Occasion Liquor Permit to serve alcohol at the event and a Special Event Permit with the City of Winnipeg to hold the event in the first place, we ran in to structural obstacles with access to the roof that have prevented us from doing so, and thus, from being permitted to hold this event.

The official word from the City’s Planning and Development Department is that the stairwell to the roof from the 6th floor is too steep; the stairwell down on to the roof from the landing is too narrow; and because the only access to the roof goes through a mechanical room, we are not allowed to have a public event up there.

We tried everything we could to make this event happen, but unfortunately it is out of our hands and we cannot go through with it.

We have decided not to relocate the event to our usual Secret Cinema venue (Black Lodge Studio) as we believe that the likely reason you purchased tickets to this event was because of the very special nature of its location on the roof.

Because we are not relocating the event we will be giving each ticketholder 1 complimentary Cinematheque pass – good for any regular screening at the Cinematheque – and 1 Monster Combo voucher. If you have purchased multiple tickets, you will receive 1 each of these per ticket you’ve purchased.

We are deeply sorry that it had to turn out this way. Please don’t hesitate to reach out with any questions or concerns.
