COVID-19 Update / Tues 4 Jan 2022

NAC will remain closed until further notice in response to the province’s return to a modified version of Step Two of the Roadmap to Reopening. We look forward to welcoming everyone back to the Screening Room & Cinema Lounge very soon. You can still visit the NAC StudioShop at 433 St Paul Street Fri & Sat 11AM-6PM and Sun 11AM-4PM. In the meantime, we wish you all the best in 2022!

COVID-19 Update / Thurs 16 Dec 2021

NAC staff and Board of Directors have all agreed that in light of the current Omicron situation, we are postponing our final three film screenings of 2021. NAC has hosted 75+ events, performances, exhibits, and screenings since July without any Covid related incidents and we really want to keep it that way!

We’ll be keeping regular gallery hours until Sat 18 Dec so you can check out David Figueroa’s exhibit in the Dennis Tourbin Members Gallery and the final instalment of V-Tape’s Curatorial Incubator in the Show Room Gallery (Screening Room).

We look forward to welcoming everyone back to the Cinema Lounge for more great films in the new year!
