Located at the Garneau Theatre, an icon on Edmonton’s skyline built in 1940, Metro Cinema is a throwback to the timeless cinema experience with reasonable admission prices and a classic deco movie house. Even the popcorn is old school, made with coconut oil and butter! There are often introductions by filmmakers, hosted talks after the movie, or themed lobby activities to make it even more memorable.
Part art house, part cinematheque, part nostalgia, Metro shows a little bit of everything on its single screen. They screen documentaries to foreign films, local to national filmmaker debuts, new releases that aren't playing elsewhere in the city, and films you haven't thought about in 30 years. With 800 screenings a year, Metro has some of it all to be shared with your fellow movie lovers.

The historic Princess Theatre, located on Whyte Avenue is an architectural piece of art over a century old. The two-screen art-house cinema has a main 400-seat auditorium that is entirely wheelchair accessible, and an intimate 100 seat screening room in the basement. It is the oldest surviving theatre in Edmonton with much of the building still much the same at it was when it was originally built in 1915.
Take the entire family for an evening at the movies, and don't worry if you have a small child, the Princess Theatre is the only theatre in Edmonton to have a Cry Room, a sound-proof viewing room, equipped with volume control and a change table.
Matinees are held every Saturday and Sunday afternoon, and Monday is discount night!
