Description & Details

This is the house of living pictures and words. RIDGE appears in a historical opening night of searchlights, fireworks and fanfare, as the most modern theatre in Canada in April 13, 1950. Situated at 16th Avenue along the Arbutus Tramline tracks that operates until 1958 it was home to the Vancouver Foreign Film Festival. The mecca movie house seemed to transcend time and change until it closed its magic doors forever in 2013.

Laughing Hand

Keith McKellar, born in New Westminster in 1947, migrated to the bush town of Prince George with his family in 1952. The boom and bust fifties and sixties of Prince George gave him a keen eye and open heart for the characters of the logging towns, construction camps and the bush-shack families. He worked at sixty-five different jobs in several fields, before becoming the professional artist Laughing Hand. He composes live, on location, portrait caricature of Vancouver's vintage Cafes and Theatres.
