After a busy couple days hiking and trail running I enjoyed an afternoon of Banff Mountain Film Fest movies. I was surprised that they had 4 theatres! It is an older theatre but comfy enough to rest my tired body and watch some great mountain...More

The Lux has some age to it but provides a decent night out at the movies. The treats are comparably priced to city prices. It is licensed for liquor. The screens/sound system are decent.

Nothing amazing about this place, but if you're in Banff and fancy taking in a move, you can't really go wrong. Just don't expect any luxuries or a wide selection of snacks (the night we went, only one flavour of popcorn was available).

Lucky find. Loved the small homely feel of this cinema. Old school feel with awesome home-made advertisements before the film came on. Friendly staff and thank you to Chris who recommended a movie for us to enjoy. Fabulous afternoon.

It was just over $20 for two people (one adult and one child), so I wouldn’t consider it a cheap theatre. Seems like the same price as you’d pay in the city, but with a much smaller screen. If you’ve got nothing else to do,...More

As theatres go, the Lux is fine. The 3D was great. Theatre was clean, staff are knowledgeable, and friendly. Popcorn fresh. Nice thing to do when in Banff. Well ran.
