Three historic murals rescued from the gutted shell of the former York Cinema have been restored and integrated into an auditorium in the new Engineering, Computer Science and Visual Arts Complex, where the York once stood.
The murals were commissioned by Emmanuel Briffa, who decorated more than 130 cinemas in Canada. They were created by artist Kenneth Hensley Holmden (1893-1963) to complement the York’s Art Deco style.

Nigel Rapport feels he has come to the right place to further his research in cosmopolitanism.
Rapport has joined Concordia’s Department of Sociology and Anthropology from the University of St. Andrews in Scotland. It’s a change from a small medieval town that he describes as “Cambridge by the sea” to a large city with an urban campus.
