Sometimes, watching Netflix on your phone just doesn’t do a movie justice. We’ve rounded up the coolest movie theatres across the country that will remind you of how awesome it is to see films on the big screen — with nothing but delicious buttered popcorn (and maybe a pop) in your hands.
The Patricia Theatre in Powell River, B.C.
The Patricia Theatre is the longest continuously running movie theatre in Canada — it started out as a silent movie house back in 1913. Despite updating the theatre with digital equipment and surround sound, the owners have managed to maintain its historic aesthetic integrity and the theatre’s live-performance acoustics. The history of the place draws back regulars, as well as the “Cheep-Cheep” ticket nights on Mondays (except during the premiere weeks of new releases) where tickets are only $6 for everyone. The theatre is also wheelchair accessible, as long as you call ahead of time to reserve a box space.
