January 1 - December 31, 2019


Throughout the year, VES Vancouver hosts a series of private screenings of the latest blockbuster films, and once again, they are extending an invitation to Spark CG Society’s members and volunteers.

Below are the times and movie descriptions for the current screenings. Please register online before midnight the day before of the screening of your choice. Depending on the title and venue, you may be able to bring guests. Check below for more info. One registration per volunteer!

As a courtesy and respect to our host, please arrive early and be friendly. It's also customary at industry screenings to remain seated until the end of the credits. Otherwise, it is considered rude. Please, inform your guests about this golden rule. Some screenings will be followed by Q&As.

Do not register if you're not sure you can go! Space is limited and we want everyone to have an opportunity to attend. If you have to make changes to your reservation, please contact your volunteer coordinator.

Please arrive early and check in with a volunteer coordinator who will have the guest list. Doors are closed once the screening begins and late comers will not be admitted. Seating is limited and available on a first-come, first-served basis.

They’re not astronauts... they only played them on TV. For four seasons, from 1979 to 1982, the crew of the NSEA Protector donned their uniforms and set out on thrilling and often dangerous missions in space — then their series was canceled. Nearly twenty years later, the five stars of the classic sci-fi series “Galaxy Quest” are still in costume, making appearances at science fiction conventions for legions of faithful fans... but some of those fans have a little too much faith. The Thermians, a race of aliens from Klatu Nebula, have mistaken intercepted television transmissions of the show for historical “documents.” Arriving on earth, they wisk “Commander Peter Quincy Taggart” and his crew into space to help them defeat an all-too-real and very deadly adversary. With no script, no director and no clue about real space travel, the actors have to turn in the performances of their lives to become the heroes the Thermians believe them to be.

Q&A with Director Jon Favreau and VFX Supervisor Rob Legato, moderated by Michael Fink, VES

Please tweet your questions after the screening in order to participate in the Q&A panel (which will take place in Los Angeles) immediately following the screening. (be sure to include the hashtag, #VESLIONKING, in your tweet.)

Disney’s upcoming film journeys to the African savanna where a future king is born. Simba idolizes his father, King Mufasa, and takes to heart his own royal destiny. But not everyone in the kingdom celebrates the new cub’s arrival. Scar, Mufasa’s brother — and former heir to the throne — has plans of his own. The battle for Pride Rock is ravaged with betrayal, tragedy and drama, ultimately resulting in Simba’s exile. With help from a curious pair of newfound friends, Simba will have to figure out how to grow up and take back what is rightfully his.
