The cinema time forgot

Reminded me of growing up in the 60's. Staff are very friendly and not a phone in sight in the cinema

Out of date. Small screen, uncomfortable seats, but friendly staff. Popcorn OK. Wheel chair accessible. Only movie house for 100 km.

I love this movie theatre, and drive the 110 km round trip as often as possible, to enjoy the movie, and connect with Marius and Maureen, the delightful owners.

Located in downtown Grand Forks, BC is the family owned theatre. It is the only theatre in Grand Forks, but they get in up to date and trending movies. They even have some couple seats to cuddle in, or if you are a larger lad like me to be able to sit in it comfortably. Being in a small town,... More

Lovely, lovely family run theatre the couple who own it are truly sweet. Get an ice cream cone or tea and popcorn with real butter and lots of toppings. A total must treat! Good movie choices and double wide seats (a few) .

Came and saw a new movie here with my son and friend while staying in Christina Lake. You should make a excuse to come here. Its a older theater but the family who run it are proud of it and it shows. Nice little place, we'll be back.

If you have been to a movie in the city and dropped $30 for a movie and snack you will notice the big difference in value - completely affordable for a family. Not all modern and fancy but the owners do their best and keep good movies coming.

Come see a movie and enjoy the best popcorn in the world!! The Gem has a vintage atmosphere. The owners are great people who love to be part of our community. If you come to Grand Forks or already live here you have got to go to the Gem.
