We have our popular Screen One monthly film series at the Uptown Theatre the first Wednesday and Thursday of every month, where we showcase an international line up of cinematic gems.

During the summer months we offer free outdoor screenings on Barrie’s waterfront. From October 12 to 21, 2018 we will be hosting our 21st annual ten-day festival at venues throughout the City of Barrie. This autumn film festival includes over 40 screenings, a Short Film Competition, guest Q&As and receptions

With over a 150 public events and screenings per year, there are many opportunities to enjoy award-winning and festival favorites on the big screen. Come see what the wide world of cinema has to offer.
