The Faces of Vancouver

The other night we went out to see the movie Moonrise Kingdom, the latest film by Wes Anderson, at Park Theatre. It’s near 18th and Cambie in Vancouver… right next to this very cool mural that I’ve always glanced on my way to work, but never stopped to really look at. And I thought… time to be a tourist in my own city. So Andrew and I went to check it out before the film.

Sometimes when you stop and take notice and pleasure in something small it really makes time stand still. And although Andrew and I were only looking at the mural for 10 minutes or so, it felt nice to break routine, appreciate some urban art and just slow down…


And if you’re wondering… Moonrise Kingdom was quirky, fun and sweet. It’s classic Wes Anderson… the same guy who made The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou, Rushmore, Bottlerocket and The Fantastic Mr. Fox. Although, I have to say my favorite Wes Anderson film is still The Royal Tenenbaums.

  1. This is an awesome mural! Love it. Playing tourist in your own town/city/state/province is fantastic. Much cheaper, and you’ll find things you never knew existed. 🙂
