The cinema is a non-profit registered charity, all proceeds beyond operating costs are given back to the community. In addition to a feature film there are door-prizes, previews, and a cartoon with free gifts for children at selected shows.
The Cinema also has three movie parties per season. One at Hallowe'en, one at Christmas, and one in the spring for our birthday. This means extra fun for everyone... Hallowe'en costume contest, Santa Claus, birthday cake, the Movie Game Show, Sing-a-longs, free gifts, and much, much more are all part of the fun.
The theatre holds approximately 500 people.
All Cinema staff are volunteers.
The Cinema is a not-for-profit organization. This means all money raised through ticket and concession sales are returned to the community to schools, churches and other charities through the Family Movie Trust Fund or used for direct use in the Cinema in operating and equipment upgrades, door-prizes, give-aways etc. All cinema staff and management are volunteers.
For some shows, all the proceeds are donated to a particular charity such as CHEO or the Red Cross.
Yes, the Cinema is wheelchair accessible.
We do take requests for movies however it is not always possible to fill the requests depending on many factors including availability, costs etc. In the case of most films when the movie becomes available on video it is difficult to get folks out of their homes to see it in the cinema.
We would need approximately 120 people in order to cover the costs of one showing.
Unfortunately, we do not hold private screenings at the cinema. You could try the Mayfair theatre on Bank Street in Ottawa for this. However, feel free to contact us if you have a proposal in mind or would like to raise funds for a charitable or non-profit group. We would be happy to help out if possible.

This is free if you have booked the Birthday Party at the cinema. The Birthday child will be called up on stage and presented with a gift and a birthday card.
Previously there were two types of accounts: "member accounts" and "volunteer accounts". Now there is one type of account, which may have 1 or more membership or volunteer linked to it. Additionally, members and volunteer information can be linked to multiple accounts. This change allows:
Additionally every account had a login which was different from the e-mail address associated. The separate login has been removed, and e-mail address is used as the login.
Lastly, password have all been reset so a new password must be chosen. There are now stricter rules about what what is considered a valid password. Passwords are stored in an encrypted fashion so they cannot be decrypted. Additionally you can not bother to set a password on your account and simply request a link be sent your e-mail address when you want to login.
Your membership is linked to your e-mail address. Please contact us and provide your name/address/phone number and we will update the membership to use your new e-mail address which will allow you to see your membership.
If you registered for a membership at the cinema, the volunteer taking your information may not have entered your e-mail address, or it was mis-typed. Please contact us and provide your name/address/phone number and we will update the membership to use your new e-mail address which will allow you to see your membership.
Currently there is no way to change your account e-mail address. As a workaround, you can register for an new account, then delete the old one.
Memberships are linked to accounts via their e-mail address. A membership can be linked to up to 2 accounts. This is way both parents (or parent and grandparent) can use the same family membership without having to share account logins. To configure this, the account that has access to the membership can add a second e-mail address to the membership contact information. The membership is now available to both accounts.
