The BC government has extended the Provincial Health Order cancelling all gatherings and events until February 5th, 2021. We are disappointed but understanding that while cases continue to rise, our province must stay as safe as possible, therefore the Paramount Theatre must remain closed for screenings and private bookings. For those that have booked private screenings, we will be in touch regarding your options. Once again, even though we are closed to the public, we appreciate your support. Stay safe. We hope to see you at the theatre soon.

She risked everything to stop an unjust war. Her government called her a traitor. Based on world-shaking true events, Official Secrets tells the gripping story of Katharine Gun (Keira Knightley), a British intelligence specialist whose job involves routine handling of classified information. One day in 2003, in the lead up to the Iraq War, Gun receives a memo from the NSA with a shocking directive: the United States is enlisting Britain’s help in collecting compromising information on United Nations Security Council members in order to blackmail them into voting in favor of an invasion of Iraq.
