“Classic theatre experience”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 4, 2013

The Uptown Theater hosts the Barrie Film Festival and also shows many indie and foreign language films throughout the year. I particularly enjoyed seeing A Royal Affair, Renoir, Chasing Ice, and Kon Tiki here. The theatre itself is a bit of a mixed bag. It has a real rustic charm which is very endearing to me. Though It could definitely use a few upgrades (better seats). The staff are always very courteous and they have great popcorn at the snack bar ;)
