Local residents rehearse in preparation for a vaudeville show at The Patricia Theatre in Powell River, British Columbia November 2, 2013. The residents put on the show to help celebrate the theatre's 100th anniversary. The Patricia was founded in 1913 and entertained customers with silent movies, vaudeville shows and even local boxing matches. The venue has been running continuously since it opened, and still hosts a wide variety of entertainment, from cinema to concerts and vaudeville. The Patricia was the first cinema built in Powell River and although others opened up there, none have survived, meaning that the Patricia is both the town's first and last movie theatre.
