The Hunger Games: Mockingjay High School Fundraising Contest!

mockingjay contest

We at Film.ca Cinemas invite student councils from Oakville’s high schools to participate in a fun fundraising promotion we are planning for the release of The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1 starting next Thursday November 20th!

Mockingjay is set to be the most popular film of the year for teens and we wanted to find a way to give back to them when they come see the movie. So we are calling it the Oakville High School Hunger Games – a friendly fundraising competition between Oakville’s high schools!

All students need to do to participate is come see Mockingjay at Film.ca Cinemas between November 20th and December 4th. Participating schools will have a ballot box set up in our lobby (all done by us, no work required on your part) and students will deposit their ticket into their school’s box when they come to see the movie. That’s it!

For every ticket in your school’s box, we will donate 50 cents to your student council. In addition on December 5th, we will tally the tickets in each box and the school with the most tickets will receive a $250 donation in addition!

All Oakville high schools are welcome to participate. Please contact Tori Nixon at vnixon(at)film.ca or 905-338-0494 ext. 206 to sign up your school and to get posters for distribution at your school.

Find us weekly in the Oakville Beaver starting Nov 6!



Starting today, Thursday November 6th, you can find our listings weekly in Thursday’s Oakville Beaver on the front page of the Artscene section along with an ad! We start off this Thursday with a full page outside wrap advertising our upcoming fall movies. We are pleased to be working closely with our friends at Metroland on this and much more in the future!

Rules and Etiquette for Rocky Horror Picture Show

Rules and Etiquette

There’s a reason that the Rocky Horror Picture Show has never left theatres since its 1975 release, and that’s because the screenings are so much fun! If you’ve never been to one before, here are some basic rules and etiquette to follow for our special screening. First the safety rules:

  • No outside beverages are allowed in the theatre (just like always).
  • Respect the cinema, staff and other guests. If you are destructive in the cinema in any way or rude/inappropriate towards other guests, you may be asked to leave.
  • Do not throw anything at the screen, walls or other people. When throwing items, throw them up and back into the air.
  • Absolutely NO OPEN FLAME (including lighters and candles) allowed. Should fire alarm be activated due to failure to comply, you will be held liable for any charges imposed by the Oakville Fire Department as well as any damages and/or losses incurred by Film.ca Cinemas Inc.
  • Stay in your seat at all times during the movie (except during The Time Warp!)
  • Any bags, purses or backpacks brought into the theatre may be checked and contraband items will be confiscated. Please try to leave bags at home or in your car.


  • eggs, prunes, hot dogs or any outside food product other than dry rice or dry toast
    outside beverages
  • lighters/candles/sparklers/any other source of open flame
  • confetti – rice is okay but confetti is too difficult to clean up
  • Silly String/shaving cream/any other messy spray
  • SuperSoaker-type water guns


  • dry rice
  • newspaper
  • dry toast
  • flashlights/glowsticks
  • noisemakers
  • rubber gloves
  • a SMALL, EMPTY squirt gun (fill it up once you get here – must be empty when you arrive)
  • bells
  • party hats
  • toilet paper


Check out the following links for some participation rules. Just remember: have fun, but don’t impede anyone else’s (including our cleaning staff’s!) enjoyment of the movie.
