When did you first start coming to the Nick?
I started going to the Nick in the early eighties. I remember the cozy, funky vibe of the old space well. My fondest memories are all of the unconventional films I experienced in that intimate setting. Some that come to mind are Diva, Repo Man, and a Canadian animation film festival where I discovered Wallace and Gromit! It is the memory of a place that embodied my weird, funky, and wild child mentality– a safe space to be myself.
How long have you been a Nick member?
I think I have been a Nick member pretty consistently for about four years. My effort to remain a member became a goal when the Nick moved to the new location. I wanted to show support with that commitment.
What’s your favorite thing about being a part of the Nick family?
Being a part of the Nick family is a reflection of the community I want to be a part of. The mission of the programming and overall environment presented by the Nick shows a commitment to a deeper moral, ethical, inclusive, humanitarian, environmental, and arts-oriented society that embraces what I feel contributes to a richer cultural experience. It certainly adds quality and meaning to my life. And the staff rocks! The new location is so nice! It is my greatest indulgence.
