Great movies, many that do not make it to the Big Name Theatres. Terrific prices. Best popcorn in town. Not usually too busy. Special prices some nights - check website.

Looks like you have the wrong place from the outside a syou have to go around a corner and up a flight of stairs to get to the theatres. My friend loved the popcorn. I enjoyed the small intimate theatre and a very good foreign film.

If you want to see a non- Hollywood movie, international film, indie etc in a comfortable seat with lots of leg room, this is the place. They serve hot tea in various flavours in real glass mugs in the winter. You can also buy healthy pure fruit juices such as Black River pure mango juice. There are healthy snacks too and they do serve popcorn! The selection of films is what you would find in most independent theatres in other big cities. It is located downtown, and is easy to walk to. Recently I noticed an escalator, which makes it more accessible for people who find it hard to climb stairs. It is my favourite place to see films in the city.

I *love* that they have alternatives to traditional movie food such as Cliff bars etc. It's brilliant-I truly don't want to eat crap food if I don't have too. Also great choice of movies and cool indie feel!

This is the only alternative to the usual American industry pap, short of renting dvds from the foreign film or alternative sections. But who wants to constantly watch movies from the dinky screen comfort of your living room?
