“A charming reminder of the past”
Reviewed 14 April 2014

Sweet, clean, elegant. The theater is surprisingly large and evokes a sense of nostalgia with it's decoration. Inexpensive compared to cinemas in the city.

Love it, love it, love it.

“lovely theatre”
Reviewed 2 April 2014

Great old time theatre. They only have 2 screens but the price is decent and the popcorn is good. The sound in the theatre is on par with any big city cinema, and the seats are comfy.

“Lovely little theatre”
Reviewed 4 December 2013

This little quaint theatre is very clean and has a friendly inviting environment. The prices are great only wish that they would bring in some 3D movies would save some trips going to the city to the movies then just staying here in town.

“Wonderful old historic movie theatre!”
Reviewed 23 September 2013

After having grown up in Renfrew and enjoying the experience of "a big night out at the movies" as a kid, this historic theatre continues to be a wonderful experience. The seats have been refurbished and the place has been renovated, yet the interior keeps its charm. The high ceiling with its architectural detailing is like eye candy, compared to the too many box stores and large theatres. Prices are still good, as well as the popcorn. Always a treat to see a movie in Renfrew!
