We are hosting the Canadian premiere of As Dreamers Do, an independent film about the early life of Walt Disney. Starring Olan Rogers and Travis Tritt, this is a highly-anticipated film within the Disney fan community and we extend an invitation for Disney fans across Canada and beyond to come out for it!
The premiere will be held at 7pm on Friday May 16th. We will also be running the film twice daily for that entire week. Tickets are on sale now!
We’ve come a long way from this time last year, when we weren’t even sure if Encore would still be here this year.
You, our loyal and wonderful guests, know that big changes have been occurring here at the cinema over the last few months – from aesthetic upgrades to, of course, our new digital cinema projection. At the same time, we’re proud to hold on to the same low prices and great customer service (and the popcorn!) that you’ve come to now and love over the past 15 years.
Well, we’ve got a BIG surprise up our sleeves. The announcement will come on Friday, April 11th at 7:00 PM EST here on Film.ca. Count down with us here.
We want to know what you think the big announcement might be! Comment here, or on our Facebook and Twitter accounts. The first person to guess correctly (or if we’ve bamboozled all of you, we’ll pick a random winner) will win a Night at the Movies pass for four. And don’t worry, we can tell you right now that we ARE NOT closing or being taken over by “the big guys”… we think you’re going to love what we have in store. Stay tuned!
Our competitor gift card program has been so successful that we are now accepting Cineplex gift cards and pass packages for admission here at Encore EVERY DAY OF THE WEEK!
Please note passes are not good for private events and may not be valid for performances marked NO PASSES… but other than that, we’re happy to accept them every day of the week, any time.
