Before we had to close, we had plans in the works to bring Atom Egoyan to the Playhouse to introduce his latest film, Guest of Honour. We can't do that now, but he's recorded a special intro just for us! Enjoy all the Hamilton landmarks and restaurants featured in the latest feature from one of Canada's best-known filmmakers.

"Original and sometimes bizarre, this is a timely reminder of what 'kids' movies' can deliver." - Times (UK)

"Let’s face it, THE GOONIES never gets old (and they never say 'die'). With its endearing cast of quirky kids and a plot filled with swashbuckling adventure, it serves as the ultimate fantasy for anyone who feels stuck in the mundane humdrum of everyday life.

"Barnaby's film rejects the default white gaze of so many horror films, choosing to tell a story through an unapologetically Indigenous lens." - Austin Chronicle

The dead are coming back to life outside the isolated Mi'gMaq reserve of Red Crow, except for its Indigenous inhabitants who are strangely immune to the zombie plague. Traylor, the tribal sheriff, must protect his son's pregnant girlfriend, apocalyptic refugees, and reserve riff raff from the horde of walking white corpses.

"There's a lot to glean from the battleground Lewis has stood on for six decades while demanding fairness, a hope, and dream, of every American. Good Trouble is of importance now more than ever." - Salon.com

Using interviews and rare archival footage, John Lewis: Good Trouble chronicles Lewis' 60-plus years of social activism and legislative action on civil rights, voting rights, gun control, health-care reform and immigration.

Filmed in Hamilton, and featuring a pre-recorded introduction for the Playhouse Cinema audience!

For many years, Atom Egoyan has been read (or misread) as a primarily cerebral filmmaker, when the fact is that all of his films are propelled by deeply felt emotional traumas, and his characters' corresponding inability to work through them.

No screenings currently scheduled.

The ultimate summer movie to see on the BIG screen!

“Here it comes, looming back out of the water: Steven Spielberg's serial-killer masterpiece from 1975. It was adapted from Peter Benchley's filthier bestseller: a killer shark with the cunning of a U-boat commander is eating swimmers, and threatening to destroy the precarious prosperity of a US beach resort over the 4 July weekend.

“There aren't many films we'd describe as perfect, but Robert Zemeckis's oh-so-80s time travel tale fits the bill.” - Time Out

“An almost perfectly wrought slice of old fashioned escapist fantasy, Back to the Future announced the celluloid arrival of the finest light-comedy actor of his generation in Michael J Fox... it remains an utterly beguiling little gem.

"Nestling next to "The'Terminator' and 'Metropolis', this is one the finest sci-fi flicks ever made." - BBC

"No one can be told what the Matrix is. You have to see it for yourself." says Morpheus (Laurence Fishburne), the earnest, elegant John the Baptist figure in the Wachowski brothers' allegorical science fiction masterpiece. Well, we'll give it a shot.

"Schwartzberg’s film quickly proves to be one of the year’s most mind-blowing, soul-cleansing and yes, immensely entertaining triumphs.” RogerEbert.com

“‘We are the wisdom of a billion years,’ Brie Larson dreamily narrates over what is not a new Marvel epic but rather a documentary of epic proportions about what director Louie Schwartzberg hopes everyone comes to view as a genuinely earthly marvel: mushrooms.

"Tarantino weaves a patchwork of crime film history into something shiny and new. Peppered with great moments eaten up by actors working at the top of their game, Pulp Fiction's witty writing, pop culture-surfing, gleeful amorality, cult tuneology and hyperkinetic energy has redefined the crime genre for the foreseeable future.
