One of the most exciting things is our new subscription: for just $60, you get access to all 2014 screenings (including a super secret subscriber-only screening), two guest vouchers and some exclusive discounts on movie tickets and DVDs. Why not get yours now? We’ll also have them for sale on the 16th.

Speaking of the 16th, here is the lineup. We’re pretty excited about it and we hope you will be, too. Why not save some money and get your advance tickets now? Just a reminder that door tickets will be increasing to $12 this year, so if you don’t want to have to remember your toonies, getting your tickets in advance (or buying a subscription) is a great idea!
