Movies are our life at Film.Ca Cinemas. We know that you as a distributor or filmmaker want the best possible facilities to show the world your film.
We have worked with a variety of independent filmmakers to give their film a winning premiere or local screening. We are equipped with five digital projector units. Each system is equipped with full digital surround sound. Films can be accepted on DCP, Blu-Ray/DVD, USB key, or on a computer.
Our cinema seats between 120-180 audience members (Pre-COVID). We are also equipped with presentation capabilities as well as a sound system for a Q&A or speeches. We also offer special group concession combos for your guests. And if you have any other special requests, we’d be happy to try to make them happen. We even have our own red carpet!

“Film.ca is a wonderful organization to partner with. The staff are professional, friendly and extremely helpful. We have been working with Film.ca for the last 3 years and each year our relationship gets stronger. Our students love to screen their films at the “movies” and it is a great way to end our academic year. Thank you Film.ca for all you do to support us.”
– Lisa Dermentjian, Department of Film, Television and Journalism, Sheridan College
“We were happy to host another screening for local students at Film.Ca Cinemas – our film looked and sounded fantastic; the new digital posters were a great new addition; and the in-house PA system helped us host a great event. And, as always, the popcorn was very tasty!”
– Andrew Nisker, documentary filmmaker (The Dark Side of the Chew, Garbage!)
“I’ve had the pleasure of screening my 3D animated feature film Cold Dark Mirror with the fine folks at Film.Ca. Each staff member I dealt with was very welcoming and professional and as an organization, they worked efficiently to meet our requests and expectations. I would highly recommend to any business or individual the opportunity to screen a film or book an event with the people at Film.Ca.”
– Morgan Muscat, filmmaker (Cold Dark Mirror)
