An intimate 90 seat screening room has been added to the basement. The main auditorium is partially wheelchair accessible (rest rooms are upstairs) but the downstairs theatre is not wheelchair accessible.

It is the only theatre in Edmonton to have a Cry Room. It is a sound-proof viewing room in the main theatre equipped with volume control and a change table; ideal for families.

Forced to work long hours, she has no choice but to leave Oliver in the care of their new neighbor, Vincent (Murray), a retired curmudgeon with a penchant for alcohol and gambling. An odd friendship soon blossoms between the improbable pair. Together with a pregnant stripper named Daka (Naomi Watts), Vincent brings Oliver along on all the stops that make up his daily routine--the race track, a strip club and the local dive bar.

  • Big Eyes

    Big Eyes

    December 26th

    Directed and produced by Tim Burton, BIG EYES is based on the true story of Walter Keane (Waltz), who was one of the most successful painters 1950s and early 1960s.

The truth would eventually be discovered though: Keane's were actually not created by him at all, but by his wife, Margaret (Adams). The Keanes, it seemed, had been living a lie that had grown to gigantic proportions. BIG EYES centers on Margaret's awakening as an artist, the phenomenal success of her paintings, and her tumultuous relationship with her husband, who was catapulted to international fame while taking credit for her work.

    Director: Tim Burton

    Amy Adams, Christoph Waltz, Terence Stamp, Jason Schwartzman, Danny Huston, James Saito, Krysten Ritter, Heather Doerksen, Steven Wiig, Jon Pulito, Emily Fonda, Madeleine Arthur

  • Inherent Vice

    Inherent Vice

    January 9th

    Drama, Crime
    Inherent Vice is the seventh feature from Paul Thomas Anderson and the first film adaption of a Thomas Pynchon novel. When P.I. Doc Sportello's ex-old lady shows up with a story about her current billionaire land developer boyfriend and a plot by his wife and her boyfriend to kidnap that billionaire and throw him in a looney bin... well, easy for her to say. It's the tail end of the '60s, paranoia is running the day and Doc knows that "love" is one of those words going around, like "trip" or "groovy," that's way too overused--except this one usually leads to trouble. With a cast of characters that includes surfers, hustlers, dopers and rockers, a murderous loan shark, LAPD Detectives, a tenor sax player working undercover and a mysterious entity known as the Golden Fang, which may only be a tax dodge set up by some dentists... Part surf noir, part psychedelic romp--all Thomas Pynchon.

    Director: Paul Thomas Anderson

    Cast - Major:
    Joaquin Phoenix, Benicio Del Toro, Eric Roberts, Reese Witherspoon, Jena Malone, Owen Wilson, Josh Brolin, Martin Short, Peter McRobbie, Maya Rudolph, Katherine Waterston, Joanna Newsom, Keith Jardine, Sasha Pieterse, Timothy C. Simons
