Maybe it wasn't quite paradise, but they're still gonna put up a parking lot. Donate to Queen's Film and Media, and in recognition you can receive a brick from Film House, before the walls come tumbling down.
In 1969 the fledgling Department of Film Studies moved into 154 Stuart Street, occupying additional space next door, at 160 Stuart, starting in 1980, and the two houses were joined ten years after. Over the years, students, faculty, and staff worked and played in Film House, cohabiting with bats, squirrels, and other varmints, until May 2014, when the department decamped for the Isabel Bader Centre for the Performing Arts.
To recognize your generous gifts, the department has retrieved 200 bricks.* They’re available on a first-come, first-served basis, so don’t delay in making your donation. Each red brick is a memento of the times you spent watching and talking about movies, making films of your own, and making friendships and memories. Act quickly and save a little, weighty chunk of history from the actual dustbin.
Donations from alumni and friends who for 45 years passed through the doors on Stuart Street help support new, rewarding educational experiences for current students and future fellow alumni.
The buildings may be demolished, but Film House can live on.
*Only immediate gifts, minimum $200, may be recognized with a brick.Each donor is eligible to receive a maximum of three bricks—one with a donation of $200 or more, two with a donation of $400 or more, or three with a donation of $600 or more.
