    Tuesday $5 dollar deals can't go wrong. Seats are surprisingly comfortable enough to enjoy a movie.

    Serves beer and has cheap popcorn. You won't get the highest quality movie experience but I love it anyway.

    It is indeed a hidden gem in the city. The screens may be a bit smaller than the regular large chain theaters but it makes up for that in the comfort you get being there. Highly recommend it ☺

    Clean and cozy, being here is like watching a movie in your own living room. Cushy seats, a smaller screen, and they sell alcohol!

    One of the most affordable theatres in the city. They play old favourites and serve booze. What more do you want?

    My favourite cinema in Toronto. Best prices for first-run features, indie flicks and foreign delights. Friendly staff,nice intimate rooms and very few if any commercials before your film.

    I love this place. While the theaters are small and the seats aren't very comfy, there is always a great selection of films from mainstream to indie. Cheap and can't say no to $5 Tuesdays!

    Possibly the saddest theatre I've ever been to in my life, with the creepiest crowd. But it has a charm in its charmlessness that cannot be explained

    Bring cash! Cash in hand means shorter lineups when it's busy.

    When watching the movie keep your cellphone away. No texting or checking the screen. You're not that important. If you can't go 2 hours without looking at your phone, stay home. Thanks.

    Can't beat 5 dollar flat Tuesdays. Small theatre rooms, but sometimes they have a piano player in the lobby while you wait and ok movie posters for sale with a minimum 2 dollar donation .

    Most theaters have $5 Tuesdays...the con's heavily outweigh the pro's on this one The screens are TINY. Good if your feeling nostalgic. Cheap popcorn with free refills and also a pianist in the lobby

    hidden gem. Cheap movies, and the inside isn't too bad. Nice for a quiet evening of movie watching without the huge crowd.
