Vancity Theatre

Vancouver Opera and VIFF invite you to savour one of the most famous movies ever made about Russia, David Lean’s epic, all-star adaptation of Boris Pasternak’s love story, set against the tumult of the Russian Revolution. With Maurice Jarre’s haunting score, Omar Sharif as the soulful doctor/poet, and Julie Christie as his soul-mate, this is unapologetically a decadent’s take on the Revolution. Adjusted for inflation, it remains one of the ten biggest box office movies ever made.
