Balcony Seating

I love coming to this theatre and sitting in the balcony! There is a second theatre in the basement that isn't as fancy but I enjoy the intimate size.

I revisited this place during the 2016 Fringe Festival to see Mike Delamont's show called, God is a Scottish Drag Queen. I have not been here for a while and this is the first time here for a Fringe play. The staff were great and I was ordered to get the popcorn by my better half. I was pleasantly surprised... More

This place is a film lover's dream. It's a beautiful, historic venue with big, comfortable seats and a selection of independent films playing year round.

Rather small but cozy, just like the good old days. The selection of movies is very nostalgic, a nice getaway from the mega theatres everywhere. Prices at the snack bar are reasonable

The Princess Theatre, on Whyte, is in a nice location. We sat in the upper balcony; okay movie screen, clear and reasonably bright for an old venue. My personal downer was with the slacker staff and the strange games with popcorn refills they play - despite encouraging comments it turns out only the large gets a refill, and in a... More

Always love seeing movies at this art-house cinema. Great location on Whyte Ave in Edmonton. Always great titles, both indie and mainstream for cheaper than the big cinema houses.

Watched the Danish Girl in this old style movie theatre with the old velvet curtains. Small screen, small seating area, small quiet crowd of mature adults. Sound at a level acceptable to old ears. $8 tickets. Short line up.

Grand old style theatre. Popcorn tastes like popcorn and all that good stuff =). Management is going to change for whatever reason near the end of January. I'm hoping the legacy will continue.
