The Grapevine - April 29, 2010

Like a lot of Wolfville residents, Cinematopia owner Megan Haliburton is passionate about film.

Haliburton used to work for Light and Shadow, one of the most extensive collections of videos and DVDs in Eastern Canada and a one-time Wolfville institution. But when the shop’s owner announced he was leaving the rental business and selling off the collection, she decided it had left a gap in the community that needed filling.

It turns out the town of Wolfville agreed wholeheartedly. A committee quickly came together to offer their support, forming a Facebook page and meeting regularly; people offered Haliburton their support on everything from business advice to logo design. And within a few short months, Cinematopia opened its doors for the first time.

Located on Main Street, the new shop is bright and welcoming, complete with chairs and a sofa in one corner, and the occasional pot of fresh coffee on offer. Haliburton wants Cinematopia to be more than just a quick-stop rental service; she wants it to be a place where people can come and while away the time talking about movies (and everything else besides). The social aspect of movie-watching is something Haliburton worries may be sometimes forgotten about as technology renders the local video store an increasingly rare species.

“There is definitely something lost in the downloading age” she said.

“There’s less sharing…but to me the sharing of the movies – or your reactions to movies – with people around you is a big part of the appeal.”

The new collection is small but carefully chosen; Haliburton has tried to ensure there is something for everyone, and of course plenty of hard-to-find treasures.

“I’ll be expanding it as I go along, but also refining it,” she said; “polishing it into a fine gem of a collection.”

Thanks to the dedication of Haliburton and the support of the community, Wolfville film buffs still have a place to go to feed their passion and talk about their latest discoveries.
