“Awesome place!”
Reviewed 28 May 2012

I *love* that they have alternatives to traditional movie food such as Cliff bars etc. It's brilliant-I truly don't want to eat crap food if I don't have too. Also great choice of movies and cool indie feel!

“the place to go for International cinema”
Reviewed 21 May 2012

This is the only alternative to the usual American industry pap, short of renting dvds from the foreign film or alternative sections. But who wants to constantly watch movies from the dinky screen comfort of your living room?

“Good, Independent Movie House”
Reviewed 25 April 2012

While there are often out of the mainstream, small market, movies on, this is a business which Kingston needs as an alternative to the short-run big cineplexes.

These people bring in movies that are excellent, but not available elsewhere (e.g., the Swedish original of the Girl with the Dragon Tatoo and both sequels, March of the Penguins) and at prices that beat the biggies every time.)

Popcorn also is good and cheap - again compared to the biggies

Great movie offerings at reasonable prices. They get a wonderful diversity of international options.

“Best 1st-run movie ticket bargain in Kingston”
Reviewed 6 March 2012

My friends, family and colleagues often make this big-screen, yet intimate cinema, our #1 stop for the Best 1st-run, re-run, classic, indie and art-house films, often the only cinema in town where you can see Oscar winning movies before anyone else knows they will win international fame. We don't work there or know the owners, we're just huge fans - and, it's still the movie ticket bargain in all Kingston - $6, $8 or $9 a show (don't forget the fresh-brewed coffees and teas).
