This theater is what great movie houses where once all about. Big and bold, with one of the largest auditoriums in the city, this 80-year-old landmark has been showing movies since the First World War. Unlike most Hollywood sequels, this second production has left the cinema with new and improved high-tech sound while maintaining the art-deco charm of the original. This historic cinema house was acquired by Blue Ice Film and Hot Docs in the middle of 2011 and is under renovations. Call or visit their website for more updates.
Occupying an entire block in the heart of Toronto's cultural district is the famous TIFF Bell Lightbox which boasts a cinema, studios and galleries which display works of art related to cinema. Visitors here are often astonished by the mammoth collection of world cinema that is screened.
The Regent Theatre has been around for quite some time. Visitors can view latest Hollywood blockbusters and regional favorites at the sprawling auditorium. For an enjoyable experience, sit back and relax with caramel popcorn and a milkshake. Call for screening times and bookings or check the website.
Inaugurated in 1914, Fox cinema is the oldest movie house in the city. A throwback with only one screen, it would definitely be out of place next to a modern Megaplex, but here in the Beaches district of the city it gets two thumbs up. Mixing Hollywood mainstream movies with the cult-classics of yesteryear, the Fox provides two shows daily with a Sunday afternoon children's matinee.
