Dinner & Movie

Every third Thursday of the month join us for Dinner & Movie night! This is an opportunity to enjoy a wonderful film at Uptown Theatre as well as a special menu offered by an amazing participating Restaurant. The two screening times – 4pm and 8pm will allow you plenty of time to enjoy a meal either after or before the show. This program will cater to two great tastes: that of a fine meal or stellar film. We recommend the delectable pairing of both dinner and movie, but of course the option is there to just go to the restaurant or the theatre. The choice is yours.

Film tickets and meals are sold separately.

Film tickets: $10 for Adults, $8 for Seniors/Students

Advance tickets are available online or one week before each screening at the Uptown Theatre box office (in the evenings an hour before their first screening). HST is included in the ticket price.

“The Salesman engages with the choices of its characters, and their consequences, with a particular urgency. That is Asghar Fahardi’s gift, and it should not be undervalued.”– Jason Bailey, Flavorwire


Forced to leave their apartment due to a dangerous construction project in a neighbouring building, a young Iranian couple moves to the center of Tehran where they become embroiled in a life-altering situation involving the previous tenant. Directed by Asghar Farhadi, who also helmed the Oscar-winning feature A Separation.
