The Rio Theatre‘s Friday Late Night Movie lineup will be cut short this month but only to bring you even more movie goodness as a venue for the Vancouver International Film Festival. There are still three full Friday night movie events this month for those who love action, adventure, grilled cheese sandwiches, buttery popcorn, adult beverages and more!
