The historic Princess Theatre, located on Whyte Avenue, was built in 1915. The original auditorium, with a balcony, is still much the same as it was originally built.

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.

    In the romantic drama The Lunchbox, middle-class housewife Ila (Nimrat Kaur) is trying once again to add some spice to her marriage, this time through her cooking. She desperately hopes that a new recipe will finally arouse some kind of reaction from her neglectful husband. She prepares a special lunchbox to be delivered to him at work, but, unbeknownst to her, it is mistakenly delivered to another office worker, Saajan (Irrfan Khan, Life of Pi), a lonely man on the verge of retirement. Curious about the lack of reaction from her husband, Ila puts a little note in the following day's lunchbox, in the hopes of getting to the bottom of the mystery. This begins a series of lunchbox notes between Saajan and Ila, and the mere comfort of communicating with a stranger anonymously soon evolves into an unexpected friendship. Gradually, their notes become little confessions about their loneliness, memories, regrets, fears, and even small joys. In the big city of Mumbai that so often crushes hopes and dreams, Ila and Saajan become lost in a virtual relationship that could jeopardize both their realities. Co-written and directed by Ritesh Batra. (Partially subtitled)

    Drama, Romance
    Academy Award winner Jim Broadbent (Iris) and Lindsay Duncan (Mansfield Park) give exquisite performances as Nick and Meg, a long-married British couple revisiting Paris for the first time since their honeymoon in an attempt to rekindle their relationship. During a two-day escapade, diffident, wistful Nick and demanding, take-charge Meg careen from harmony to disharmony to resignation and back again as they take stock of half a lifetime of deep tenderness--and even deeper regret. A surprise invitation from Nick's old friend Morgan (Jeff Goldblum), an amusingly boorish American academic with a fancy Parisian address, soon leads them to an unexpectedly hopeful vision of what their love and marriage might still become. This magically buoyant, bittersweet comedy-drama is a new peak in the ongoing collaboration between Notting Hill director Roger Michell and screenwriter Hanif Kureishi (Venus, The Mother).

    Director: Roger Michell

    Cast - Major:
    Jim Broadbent, Lindsay Duncan, Jeff Goldblum, Olly Alexander, Judith Davis
