The Princess Theatre tends to get eclectic movies that are entertaining and thought provoking shown in two separate theatres, the top one with a balcony. It's definitely a retro theatre in the heart of Edmonton's Old Strathcona that features old-fashioned seats and a small, cozy...More

Would have likely given 5 stars, but viewing of Movie was very dim and dark. Apparently a bulb was burnt out in Projector and this had been brought up by patrons before. Not sure why they wouldnt fix it immediately. Would have made experience so...More

I love coming to this theatre and sitting in the balcony! There is a second theatre in the basement that isn't as fancy but I enjoy the intimate size.

I revisited this place during the 2016 Fringe Festival to see Mike Delamont's show called, God is a Scottish Drag Queen. I have not been here for a while and this is the first time here for a Fringe play. The staff were great and...More

This place is a film lover's dream. It's a beautiful, historic venue with big, comfortable seats and a selection of independent films playing year round.

Rather small but cozy, just like the good old days. The selection of movies is very nostalgic, a nice getaway from the mega theatres everywhere. Prices at the snack bar are reasonable

The Princess Theatre, on Whyte, is in a nice location. We sat in the upper balcony; okay movie screen, clear and reasonably bright for an old venue. My personal downer was with the slacker staff and the strange games with popcorn refills they play -...More

Always love seeing movies at this art-house cinema. Great location on Whyte Ave in Edmonton. Always great titles, both indie and mainstream for cheaper than the big cinema houses.

Watched the Danish Girl in this old style movie theatre with the old velvet curtains. Small screen, small seating area, small quiet crowd of mature adults. Sound at a level acceptable to old ears. $8 tickets. Short line up.

I don't know, but I don't think so. It's an old building, so there's not a lot of alterations they can do to it. You might be able to risk the stairs. Also, Amy is playing later at the Metro, and they are much more... More
