Located in the old downtown core of Barrie, the Uptown Theatre is a step back in time. The prices... read more

This is an old school theater like we used to go to as kids, but the seating in theater 3 is wicked!!!! You get big leatherette easy chairs with foot rests that flip out. Needless to say the leg room in this theater is unreal....More

Located in the old downtown core of Barrie, the Uptown Theatre is a step back in time. The prices are significantly better than the other two options in Barrie, but the movie selections are usually a bit older or small budget films. It's a great...More

Old school, classic movie theatre feel - I would choose to go here any day over Cineplex. Sometimes the newer movies take a bit of time to come to this one but I'd gladly wait. $20 will get you a ticket, popcorn, drink and candy...More

This is an older theatre in the heart of Barrie. One of the theatres has comfy, lounge seats and if you look at their ad in the local paper, it identifies which film is playing with these seats. In the other theatres, you sometimes have...More

This small old-time renovated theatre is a gem. It does not necessarily cater to the block buster crowd, but it does offer top quality movies that a mature audience appreciates. Some of the theatres have reclining seats that are so comfortable. They also have a...More

This theater is the best in Barrie! It has a lot of really old charm to it, you get a kinda creepy vibe going upstairs with all the mirrors, which is cool. They have a licensed bar too! Comfy seats!
