Scope and content

Item is a documentary film documenting a street demonstration in Vancouver in July 1981 protesting the screening of the sexually explicit feature film Caligula in a conventional movie house (not a pornographic establishment). The film includes footage of a crowd of several dozen adults and children carrying placards and picketing the Towne Cinema (919 Granville Street) where Caligula was being shown, a spokesperson for the organization United Citizens for Integrity explaining their reasons for protest, and a number of heated debates on the street between protestors and bystanders/theatre-goers. Film also includes some general views of Granville Street showing the Towne Cinema and nearby buildings.
