Great nostalgic movie theatre and museum.

Great nostalgic movie theatre and museum. Takes me back to the old theatres as a kid. Wonderful collection of movie memorabilia and equipment. Fun for the whole family.

Loads of interesting items - well displayed, and endless. Great snack bar (popcorn was excellent). Theatre #1 seating very comfortable (bring a sweater - A/C works very well). Requires repeat visits to look at everything - looking forward to a return visit before they close up at end of season (right after Canadian Thanksgiving weekend, I believe).

What a great place to watch a movie, prices can't be beat and the memorabilia in the place is incredible. Good popcorn, and the cats are quite the site to see. Love it

Service is great. Arrive in good time as it fills up quickly. All digital now which was a nice up grade since I was last in. The museum is pretty neat.

This movie theater is a true gem. It has a fantastic snack bar, movie theaters and a museum. It is perfect for families and or adults. The selection of movies is very good and the price is very reasonable. We have visited Kinmount just to be able to go to the movies. They also have an adorable cat home outside... More

While it may be impossible for the proprietor of this small, quirky theatre complex to have any control over the weather, I believe my moviegoing experience could have been improved. We left Haliburton to attend an afternoon showing of a movie on a very rainy Wednesday. This was a approximately a 30 minute drive. Perhaps we should have anticipated the... More

Heard about this place from a bunch of locals. Yes, it's a movie theater where you can catch the latest releases but it is so much more. It is a full blown movie museum with some very neat exhibits. And it is much bigger than it appears so count on spending a bit of time going through room after room... More

very interesting place with 5 theatres, each gathered from a former theatre and fantastic museum collection to enjoy before movies; also snacks at the most reasonable price for any movie theatre. Bonus if you are a cat lover is the collection of upstairs/downstairs cats outside.

Go early check out the museum there are thousands of neat little Knick-knacks on display old projectors and the cinema itself is very neat all built into the side of the hill. Very steep parking bit hard on the seniors but well worth going. Fairly cheap last time we went as well.

We went here for a date night and I loved this place. So much character compared to city theaters. I walked around the museum for 45 minutes. I loved the old posters and paraphernalia from each decade. The theatre was very clean and my husband and I had a great time.
