“A home town theatre”
Reviewed 30 June 2014

Norwood Theatre is a family run business that provides great entertainment year round in this small community. They feature new releases & host the Spinning Reels program all year.
With 3 small theaters it's a great facility!

“Independent theatre with character”
Reviewed 25 June 2014

Although the shape of the theatres are odd (think pitched bowling alley), this place has character and visitors should make an effort to come here. I love that the concession counter is small, but has everything you need and reminds you of an old arena concession stand... not a like the fast food drive through concession stands like in the modern mega theatres. And when we were here back in December on a cold and blustery day, they welcomed us in to "come warm ourselves by the fire" and escorted us in to the theatre where they were playing the fireplace channel on the big movie screen. As a long time visitors to and now residents of Bracebridge, we try to frequent this theatre as much as possible and avoid the big chain theatres - more character at the Norwood for less money than the big theatres.

“Old Time Theatre - Digital & Dolby Experience”
Reviewed 18 May 2014

The Norwood is a throwback in time to theatres of the 30's and 40's but the owners have upgraded the theatre, since spit into 3 theatres, to the 21st Century with digital and dolby technology and upgraded seating, all the while retaining the charm of the box office on the Main Street and intimate snack bar serving popcorn with real butter.

“Enjoyable Muskoka Movie Experience”
Reviewed 20 April 2014

The Norwood Cinema provided a most enjoyable evening out at the movies. The staff were welcoming and very helpful. The candy bar was well stocked and the popcorn was delicious!!! Visiting downtown Bracebridge and taking in a movie just enhances the Muskoka magic!!!

“Brilliant small town movie theatre!!!”
Reviewed 9 April 2014

This independently owned/ operated movie theatre is a true gem of bracebridge. I've been there many times over the years and my experiences have always been great. The owners and staff are extremely welcoming, movie selection is current and the concession stand offers reasonably priced treats including fantastic popcorn with REAL butter. So if your looking for entertainment in brace bridge I would highly recommend the Norwood theatre.
