Pass the popcorn: Vogue Theatre offers delivery movie snacks

Fernie locals can get popcorn delivered right to their door on Fridays this month

Over the next two Fridays Elk Valley locals can kick back at home and watch their favourite movies with the best cinema snack available: popcorn.

The Vogue Theatre in Fernie will be doing home deliveries of popcorn to movie fans in Fernie, while the rest of the valley is pick-up only.

Owner of the theatre, Dennis Djonlich said that the popcorn offering – which the theatre has been doing each time it has been mandated to shut during the pandemic – has pretty good uptake from locals, though more are welcome.

As we all know, no movie experience is complete without popcorn.

Movie buffs can order popcorn online for delivery on Fridays heading towards Christmas, with details available on the Vogue Theatre Facebook page.

Locals hoping to enjoy the cinema experience back in front of the big screen will have to wait, though.

Djonlich said that while cinemas were mandated to stay closed through to next week, it was uncertain when they’d be able to open again.

“We have no idea (when Vogue will open again) … we go week to week. Maybe they’ll extend the closure.

“It’s a finish line with no end – it’s constantly changing,” he said.

The theatre had closed temporarily in November due to uncertainty over the COVID-19 orders as well as a mishap with their projector. Though those problems are now behind them, changeable public health orders mean that all cinemas across the province are closed until Jan. 8.

Previously, Djonlich has said he believes that 2021 will be brighter for the industry.

“We’re going to be okay, there’s going to be some sunshine and blue skies for this business at some point.”
