“Best Place in Toronto to see a film”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 28, 2013

Top-notch picture and sound. cosy environment, the anti-thesis of loud and crazy multiplexes. Great documentary-focussed programming.

“Hot docs galore!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 18, 2013

This cinema at Bathurst on Bloor is a testament to the city's love of film - with great documentaries which feature films from all over the world. It is also the first to offer wine and beer with the show.

Directors are often in attendance and offer answers to audience questions. Seating is new and comfy, and focus is on recycling and Eco packaging for food and drinks. Volunteers are on hand to answer questions, take tickets etc and are a valuable asset.

Cinema has an accessible washroom and has accessible seating on the main floor. You are welcome to bring in coffee.

You are guaranteed to find films you want to see each month - buy a membership and get tickets for less!

“Smashing reno”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 12, 2012

The renovation is really beautiful, keeping the age looking warm and inviting, but with all the modern necessities. You can see from wherever you are in the theatre, and generally the films are great. Go if you like docs and to see a really fine renovation.

“Much better before”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2012

I realize that the theatre was dated, with dated interiors, but it had character. I really liked the mix of kitchy movies, indie movies and blockbuster movies.
Now that the theatre was changed to hot docs, it's lost a lot of its charm.
