Western Film request to patrons. Please stop bringing young children to movies that aren't meant for them (World War Z wasn't meant to be seen by 5 year old children). The children's talking and moving around are a distraction to the other patrons. We will be monitoring the theatre and requesting children to be quiet and sit still or leave.

Status Update: Renovations are taking longer than expected as there are about one thousand construction projects and they seem to be working on all of them at the same time. Then we have to put up the new screen and all the other non-construction improvements we have planned. We now expect to reopen mid to late August.

Renovation Update.

Most people didn't know there was an unused stage behind Western Film's screen. The current renovations are mostly about reclaiming that space so it can be used. Since we have to take the screen down and close for a time anyway we decided to give Western Film what we are calling a Redux.

Final decisions are yet to be made but the Redux will probably include the following elements.
- a new screen mounted higher to improve sightlines from both main floor and balcony.
- The Digital Projector moved to a upper projection booth where we won't have people standing up into the image any more?!
-A complete visual overhaul including curtains and lighting. This will be the fun stuff.
-Some changes will occur at the snack bar as well.
-We are redoing our marketing and advertising including a new logo and website.

We will be updating our website as things progress.

This is what Rows of theatre seats looked like covered in plastic. Came in handy as the room is covered in plaster dust now.




We're still looking for more input on our Friday Midnight Cult Movies for the fall. The survey responses so far have some obvious picks but a lot of the other movies have about the same number of votes. Please leave suggestions or you can pick from our survey on the Cult Movies page.

Anyone interested in Opera or Shakespeare?
We are probably going to be running a series of Royal Opera House productions filmed for the big screen, as well as Shakespeare's Globe stage productions.
However we only know movies?! If anyone would be able to give us some advice such as which of the operas we can choose from are good then we would like to hear from you. Please e-mail us at
