Atomic Cartoons reanimates old Kit and Ace space

Vancouver Courier/ Saša Lakić 

B.C. Premier John Horgan paid a visit March 19 to Vancouver’s Atomic Cartoons for the opening of the company’s new headquarters.

The animation studio takes over the space at the corner of West Seventh Avenue and Manitoba Street, previously home to local fashion house Kit and Ace.

Horgan said it was exciting that Atomic Cartoons has grown to a 400-strong operation, warranting the expansion from a smaller space a block away. He also said the Lower Mainland’s creative industries have an “enormous impact” on B.C.’s economy, employing some 90,000 people.

Lisa Beare, Minister of Tourism, Arts and Culture, was also in attendance and praised the company’s success and growth over the past years. After their brief statements, Beare and Horgan pretended to cut a ribbon with their index and middle fingers to symbolize the official opening of the new building.

The premier and the minister were not available for media questions afterwards.
