- The Dunbar holds a special place in my heart. It’s my favourite theatre—and surely number one for many other Vancouverites—for many reasons. The most compelling among them earning the Dunbar several prestigious titles; I’ve crowned the theatre as having the “most comfortable seats,” “best street-parking availability” and, most importantly for any serious movie-goer, “best popcorn.” – Kristen Hilderman, secret city
The Dunbar Theatre
Named one of WestJet Magazine's Five Iconic Movie Theatres, The Dunbar Theatre keeps things simple: top first-run films, fresh popcorn, comfortable seats, a friendly staff, and one big screen. But in simplicity is something fresh. Those newly installed seats have enough room that audiences can stretch their legs, armrests raise for cuddling, and a balcony lets viewers change up their sightlines. Old-fashioned styles aside, the movie house stays up-to-date with recently upgraded projection technology and a sound system with the clarity of 10,000 Morgan Freemans. Located near UBC, the theatre is within walking distance of numerous diners and cafes, making it a date-night no-brainer. As one of the few remaining independently owned movie theaters in Vancouver, The Dunbar Theatre also offers specials, including free movie giveaways, to fans of their Facebook page.
