New Limited Release: Cinema Collage Prints

Now available as a lifetime release of only 50 units per collage, the latest print sale from Editing Luke features these two, brand new archival collages of the Towne Theatre and Monarch Theatre - two historic movie theatres located in Medicine Hat, Alberta.

As a filmmaker who was feeling particularly nostalgic at the time, in 2013 I set out to document two of the iconic local movie theatres from my childhood - the (now former) Towne Theatre and the (since refurbished) Monarch Theatre.


What makes these collage prints rare is that they showcase no longer existing details, architectural elements, and equipment from the interiors of two cinemas that have seldom been documented for their own merits. Years of project research and exploration through numerous archives around the province has only further confirmed this.

When the images for these collages were shot in 2013, the Monarch was still undergoing upgrades and the Towne had yet to be gutted. As a result, these limited edition collages highlight the character of these cinemas as they had existed for decades prior.

From the concessions to the projection rooms, these archival collages are certain to bring back memories of summer blockbusters, first dates, opening weekends, first jobs, and weekend matinees. Anyone who grew up in the Hat almost certainly has a story about going to the Towne and the Monarch.

As a lifetime release of only 50 units per each cinema, these hand-signed, numbered prints will never be licensed, reprinted, or duplicated. There will only ever be the original 50 collages of the Monarch and 50 collages of the Towne movie theatres released.

The Adolphus Hotel in Dallas, Texas

Opened in 1912, the Adolphus Hotel in downtown Dallas, Texas is an unmistakable landmark and a luxury hotel fit for royalty - quite literally, in fact, Queen Elizabeth II stayed here in 1991. 

While there are a lot of interesting places to stay in Dallas, the Adolphus is the kind of historic property that immediately piques your curiosity the moment you enter the lobby. 


Built by Adolphus Busch, the founder of the Anheuser-Busch company, the Adolphus was always meant to grab attention. It was Dallas' first grand hotel and for nearly a decade was the tallest building in Texas. From its stunning woodwork and rich, warm tones throughout, there's no mistaking that you're somewhere special when exploring this century old icon. 

And if you're looking for more entertainment options, rumour has it there may even be the ghost of a jilted bride hanging out on the 19th floor of the hotel. We never crossed paths though.

Whatever the reason for your visit, like I was, you're sure to appreciate the modern twists on traditional luxury. There's no denying it's an incredible space to wander, chillout, and grab a drink. The Adolphus was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1983.
