English Movies should be available in Quebec City

VOA movies return to Quebec City. To my amazement my Facebook group had doubled since and many other groups on Facebook alone have progressed with increases in membership on a day-by-day basis. We see that there is a demand in this historical city of ours.

Over the past few days, I've discovered with others that many of the city's Francophones, Anglophones and other bilinguals, together, were in favour of bringing back English movies. Many people were contacted and NONE disliked the idea. Some people in local hotels were contacted. The employees I spoke with informed me they were asked by young tourists if we had English theaters with English movies in town.

Out of a few CINEPLEX administrators in Montreal who was contacted, one didn't seem very interested. It was extremely frustrating. I informed her that some of our citizens desire to view VOA movies. In fact, she is the only one who didn't show interest in the idea. Again, all the other people I have spoken to favour the project.

The most important thing I have learned in this project is that ALL, no matter what language group they belong to, everyone shares our wish for a return of VOA movies in Quebec City. . At last, a project that has no language barrier. Everyone can join in.

I won't stop trying with effort until when we open the doors to watch the first VOA movie once again.

I want to thank all, Quebec Chronicle-Telegraph, and Facebook users who united in a common cause. Together we can succeed.
