Calgary movies and theatres

More movie info.

Movie Film

To find out at which location in Calgary movies are playing, in particular if it's a new movie release that you're interested in, you can look in the Calgary Metro News, or at one time in the past, the weekly FFWD magazine. Or you could take a look at calgarymovies.com for details. Who's in for a good flick?

On this website, you can search for the movie you want to watch and see a listing of Calgary movie showtimes at the various theaters in the area.

I find this much easier than reading through the papers cinema by cinema until you find the movie you want to see.

If you're undecided whether to go or not, then perhaps the additional movie reviews on this site by ordinary Calgarians will persuade you one way or the other. Or international ones. I especially like imdb.com and rottentomatoes.com for reference.

Watch our own Calgary movies:  Let's stay in tonight

Perhaps you're one of the people who prefer to stay home and watch a DVD instead of paying to go to the cinema to watch something on the big screen.

Well yes, I do agree that staying at home to watch a DVD has its benefits. But there is something about going out to the picture show to look forward to that you just can't get by staying at home to watch.

DVD rental and retail stores are far too numerous to list individually here.

Maybe it's the big screen. Perhaps you remember the excitement you experienced as a child when your parents made a fuss about taking you out to the cinema to watch your favorite movie.

Whatever it is, going out once in a while to the movies is great fun, especially if combined with a restaurant meal before or a nightcap afterwards.

Although some cinemas showing movies are independently owned and operated, there are some chains as well. Cineplex Odeon Theatres is one chain with perhaps the most outlets in the city. There's also Empire Theatres and Landmark Cinemas.

Whichever cinema you decide to visit is either one of personal preference, or perhaps the only one playing in Calgary movies you want to see. Then again the best popcorn on offer could also be a deciding factor, in which case the Globe or the Uptown are probably best for you.

You will find something that suits you. For sure. Go back from Calgary Movies to the Internet Site Map web page.
