York Lane Art Collective.

Thank you for investing in the future of the arts!

We're glad you asked! The Little Prince is a cinema themed cafe, olde timey sweet shoppe, and intimate event space, designed to enrich the community by breathing life into adventurous and unconventional arts programming via our twelve seat "micro-cinema" and its accompanying "Lobby Lounge & Theatre Concession." Our screening room is affectionately referred to as...

We have already begun for the official Guinness World Record but sadly Covid has slowed the process down... But of course we will definitely keep you all updated as things progress!!

 

The Little Prince was designed and built in the Spring of 2019 by Leigh Cooney, alongside several friends, family members, filmmakers, artists, and a loving community. We are a "Social Enterprise," meaning we operate on a community-before-profits model. Thank you for your support, it will never be forgotten!

Little Prince?

Celebrating the art of the short!

Reel%20Low%20Res_edited.png

Welcome to LPTV, a curated online streaming project dedicated to shining a light on the vastly underappreciated art of the "short." Brought directly to you. Wherever you are.

 

The goal of Little Prince TV is to share our appreciation for micro-portions of unconventional yet accessible visual art (from film, puppetry, stand-up comedy and sketches, to theatre, live musical performance, and educational speakers,) with an emphasis on homegrown talent from across Canada. 

We're almost there, but these are challenging times, and we are a small organization. To finally launch this project we need your generous support!

LPTV is still in development: please scroll down to get a glimpse of how this project might look with your support, and if you have any questions or suggestions please reach out!

Old Radio.png

Old-Time Radio Plays

Creeeek, boom, crash, zap! Before the internet, before podcasts, before TV sets... there was radio. From the 1930's to the 1950's radios brought adventure, mystery, comedy, music, news, sports, and drama into millions of homes around the globe.

At that time radios were still beautifully and meticulously designed and were given a place of honour in the family home. Families would gather around their "wireless," the same way we gather around our TVs today, and they'd let their imaginations transport them to alien planets, scenes of murder, faraway wars, or great music halls. We want to bring that back.

We have an extensive collection of "Old Time" radio dramas, period newscasts, and live performances in our collection. We've gently updated our old Tombstone radio, adding hidden wireless speakers to the inside of the cabinet.

So pull up a chair, grab some popcorn, and settle in as we dim the lights and transport you back to a simpler time. Coming soon... with your support.

The

"World's Smallest Movie Theatre!"

Whether you call it a screening room, a cinema, a movie theatre, or an interactive art installation, the ten seat Little Prince "Micro-Cinema" is certainly unforgettable. 

Designed and built in the Spring of 2019 by Leigh Cooney, alongside several friends, family members, filmmakers, artists, and a loving community, the Little Prince may unwittingly become the perfect antidote to the post-pandemic blues.

 

As soon as the current restrictions are lifted we expect to be one of the only "movie theatres" in the world capable of operating at full capacity (easy peasy lemon squeezy when your capacity is only ten people!)

Concession Treats!

Popcorn & Cotton Candy

When the pandemic hit in 2020 we wasted no time in responding to the needs of the community in the only way we knew how... by turning to our, (at that time brand new and untouched) popcorn and cotton candy machines! Within a week we had begun delivering fresh treats to local families stuck inside. One year later our pop-up side business has turned into our saving grace and we've put smiles on a lot of faces at a time when we all need a reason to smile. This makes our hearts swell. Thank you for that!!


We now make, deliver, and ship, several kinds of gourmet handmade popcorn alongside over FORTY (and counting) flavours of cotton candy!

Are you looking for some authentic theatre popcorn for your next movie night, or a popular and cost effective way of raising funding for a good cause? We would love to help.

Autodidacticism Workshops

Teaching You to Teach Yourself

Autodidacticism (also autodidactism) is self-education or self-directed learning. An autodidact, also known as an automath, is a mostly self-taught person — typically someone who has an enthusiasm for self-education and a high degree of self-motivation.

Let's make history together!

In the interim we are working to raise funds for two new bathrooms on the ground floor, one of which will be wheelchair accessible, as well as a touchless and automatic front door opener, and much more.

 

Every time you purchase snacks from our concession or make a donation we get one step closer to opening the doors. 

 

The Little Prince is a passion project above all else. Operating on a not-for-profit model means we depend on small but generous investments like yours to survive. It's a challenge at the best of times but let's face it, we've had a s**t run of luck this last year or more.

We are building something completely new. A small unconventional space for hosting small unconventional events. All for the most intimate of audiences.
