    Deceiving from the outside - old but amazingly clean inside and quite spacious plus seats are quite new, too.

    The perfect way to spend an evening. We should all be so proud that our city has such a lively cultural atmosphere. Visit this incredible theatre and SUPPORT HOT DOCS!

    Lovely old theatre that shows great independent films and double-features.

    Home of our Vanguard and documentary films, we think our audience will love seeing smart, hip Festival films in a grand neighbourhood cinema.

    Comfy, wider seats with drink holders downstairs but view may be better from upstairs as screen is higher than usual. Really a matter of personal preference. Outside food allowed.

    Did you know that this building was originally built in 1913 and then demolished and rebuilt in 1941? Come visit us during Doors Open on May 25-26th, 2013.

    Good popcorn. Lower seats much more bum friendly with more leg room.

    Beware the balcony. They serve alcohol at the bar downstairs and by the end of a movie drunk idiots are a chattin' at the screen ;-)

    One of the only theatres in Toronto that's licensed!!! Kick back and enjoy a beer or glass of wine while you watch your flick :)

    Need more room? There are extra-wide seats on the ends of some rows in the balcony. On the main level, arm rests can be moved up out of the way.

    Connie Crosby · September 23, 2012
  • Andrea Z.

    The only decent seats are on the main floor anywhere from the third row from the back to the twelfth. Anywhere else and the screen is cut off or you'll have to strain your neck to see the film.

    Beer (and wine)!!

    .. and licenced too - beer/wine at concessions. Take that Montreal :)

    Food trucks will be outside this venue from September 7-16 for the Toronto International Film Festival. Grab a gourmet snack before or after you catch a film.

    A serious renovation - but seats are not very wide. Prepare to rub elbows.

    Awsome throwback, exciting and new adding a lot of character to the neighbourhood!

    Shelsey Quintino · June 1, 2012
  • Jordan S.

    For ultra comfy seats, hit up the first floor. For optimum viewing, nab the front row in the balcony.

    They've done a great job with the renovations!

    Love the Bloor, and new documentary programming, but having the screen so high is a colossal design failure.

    Avoid the balcony, if possible.

    Excellent old skool movie theatre. A throwback to what was once the norm. Old style seating, a balcony, they even have a stage in front of the screen. Very cool, and hip place to see movies. Great Read more

    Great neighbourhood cinema, old, bit worn, but charming, always a good line-up of films and fun theme evenings (Rocky Horror, Oscars evening, etc).

    Judith Patterson · March 8, 2010
  • Julien C.

    Go see a movie you've already seen a million times before but never on the big screen. Popcorn will only enhance the experience. Read more
