There’s a Time Machine in Vancouver. It’s a white box, 9 ft. high and 12 ft. wide, in a nondescript back room at the office of a publicly funded agency that one wouldn’t normally associate with science fiction. Step inside and you’re transported to the city’s past–1948 or thereabouts–able to explore a now razed neighborhood or a hotel demolished decades ago. No helmet or space suit is required. On April 23, you’ll be able to travel through space as well as time, when the machine opens to the public as part of the Tribeca Film Festival in New York City.
