Cinema Announcements

The re-opening of the Ottawa Family Cinema


Hello everyone!

We are excited to announce that we are beginning the preparations to reopen the cinema in our new home at the Rideau Hub (formerly Rideau High School) after a difficult 18 months since we’ve had to close the Ottawa Family Cinema (OFC).

However, in order to get back to the shows, important renovations to the projection room, stage, and snack bar are needed before we can reopen. The estimated goal is approximately $50,000 and we would like to ask for your help to get us up and running again as soon as possible so we can once again bring the fun and excitement of weekly shows back to our community.

You can donate to our Family Movie Trust Fund at>. For any donation of $20 or higher, we will issue an official Tax Receipt.

Please donate if you are able and/or share our posts on social media t to assist us in reaching our goal. With your help, we can get the cinema open and operating better than ever so our friends and families can enjoy our shows in a safe environment for us all.

We look forward to seeing you all again soon at the OFC!

Jim and the OFC Team

Cinema "Graduating" to a new location!


The Ottawa Family Cinema is happy to announce it is moving to the Rideau Hub (Formerly Rideau High School) at 815 St-Laurent Blvd.

After an extensive search to find a suitable location (when the OCSB refused to renew our auditorium rental agreement) we were contacted by management at Rideau who offered us their theatre plus the required storage rooms etc., to continue with our shows for the community.

We are very excited and as soon as we can have access to both Notre Dame and Rideau we can start the difficult and expensive task of moving. We will share more information and pictures in the next few weeks as they become available.
