Western Film is open 7 nights a week and shows all
the latest movies just a few weeks after they debut!
Western Film has a Class A theatre license and is an independent, second-run (or move-over) movie theatre. That means that we show all the latest releases, just a few weeks after they debut in first-run houses.
Tickets are only $4.99 per person and $3.50 on Tuesdays, making us the best deal in town. Kids and seniors are just $3.50 every show. The box office (located in front of the McKellar Theatre) opens one half hour before show-time.
If you're not in front of your computer and you want to find out what's playing, check out the Gazette, the London Free Press, or call the MovieLine at 661-3616. If you desire, we can even notify you of our weekly features
We show all of our regular movies on film, never on video, which means that the picture is always big, bright, and high-resolution. We use 35mm film projection, the same as other major theatres. The projection and sound equipment has had a major upgrade, dramatically improving the sound and picture quality, resulting in an incredible technical experience for moviegoers. As a single screen theatre we can pay more attention to detail than a theatre with 12 screens all run by one person! We adjust focus as needed and set the volume level for each show.
Our sound system features 22 speakers and is amplified by 4400 Watts of power. We can run films in both Dolby Stereo A-Type and Dolby Stereo SR (Spectral Recording). Both formats feature separate sound information from the right, centre, left, surround, and subwoofer channels to really wrap you into the movie. Dolby Stereo SR features a greater dynamic range with less noise for higher highs and lower lows. Western Film is also equipped with Dolby Digital Sound. This state-of-the-art system is utilized on most films and the movie's digital soundtrack is printed on the film between the sprocket holes next to the standard analogue soundtrack. Dolby Digital Sound produces incredible high fidelity sound and is in use in thousands of theatres world-wide.

Western Film features a slide presentation before each show. The slides contain trivia questions as well as advertisements for Western Film's various services and ads from other businesses as well. The slide presentation begins each night approximately one half hour prior to every screening. The slides can be professionally produced by graphic artists at InPrint here in the UCC building or can be provided by advertisers. The slides are full colour and can even contain photos.
