  • The Tivoli Theatre opened on October 7, 1936 making it one of the first suburban cinemas in Calgary.

For much of its history,  It operated as a typical neighbourhood theatre, offering "Buck Rogers" serials for kids on Saturdays, and light comedies and musicals for their parents in the evenings. But in the 1970s, it became an adult theatre. According to a @calgaryherald article published in 1977 it was “the only soft-core porn house in the city.” Their signboard at the time read: Adult movies. Double feature every night. Special Sunday matinee showings.

The Tivoli Theatre officially closed its doors in 1990, and in 1992 was converted into the Tivoli Shops, which it remains to be today. Swipe to see some archival footage from the 30s & 70s, courtesy of the @glenbowmuseum

  • #FBF — who remembers the gigantic vase of flowers, fruit bowl and door by artist Franklin Hiesler that used to sit outside of the BMO on 4th?

The freestanding pieces were constructed of laminated plywood, painted with acrylic paint and finished with a weather protective ultra-violet coating…. But what was the work of art supposed to represent?

According to Hiesler, ‘Dream Fragments’ was meant to represent an Alice in Wonderland fragment of a dream by taking a component of our reality (the front of an office building) and shifting our perception of that by introducing objects such as the table, fruit and door.

What’s your favourite art sculpture currently on 4th? Let us know in the comments below 🍇🍑💐
  • Did you know? 
Built in 1912, Central Memorial Park Library is Alberta's oldest public library, and one of the over 150 libraries built in Canada with funds from the American millionaire Andrew Carnegie.

Carnegie was a great believer in the importance of public libraries to communities. In the late 19th and early 20th centuries, he donated more than 56 million dollars to help build libraries worldwide, three of which were built in Alberta. 👉 Swipe to see how little the library has changed since it first opened its doors 📚
