This place is great if you missed a film in the theatre you can always count on this place to have it here and for cheap too! Love it!
I like that fact that if you missed it in theatres the first time, you can catch that special not so new anymore release here after it stops playing at the big theatres.

They also show alot of documentaries and film fest flicks.
Great second run / special interest / classics movie theatre. After membership each other movie is $ 5 for the rest of the year membership. Also the popcorn is way better than the big theatres

So distracting and whack! Don't even... more
The Hot Docs festival tops my list of favourite things in the city, so it follows that this cinema is on my list of favourite places. (I won't focus on the incredible curation of the festival, which has its own Yelp listing and which I'd prefer to TIFF any day of my life.)
This theatre has its [very limited] faults (e.g. the first floor is so flat that virtually any seat seems too close/low to... more
This theater is what great movie houses where once all about. Big and bold, with one of the largest auditoriums in the city, this 80-year-old landmark has been showing movies since the First World War. Unlike most Hollywood sequels, this second production has left the cinema with new and improved high-tech sound while maintaining the art-deco charm of the original. This historic cinema house... more
