Watching a movie, like confronting a poltergeist, is best done in the dark with a crowd to bolster your spirits. Face the unknown with today's Groupon: for $9, you get two tickets to Magic Lantern Theatres, valid at the Carlton Cinema location (up to an $18 value).

The movie screens at Magic Lantern Theatre–Carlton Cinema enthrall audiences with Hollywood blockbusters and art-house fare. Open daily for matinee (a $14 value for two adult tickets) and evening shows (an $18 value for two adult tickets), the multiplex harvests ever-changing crops of rom-coms, historical dramas, and action thrillers. The refurbished Carlton location spans nine auditoriums with upgraded seating, projection systems, and extendable robotic arms for sneaking gummies from a neighbouring knee, as well as a newly designed lobby. Before, after, or in between movie showings, cinephiles can stock up on provisions at the popcorn-laden snack bars.

Magic Lantern Theatres

At Magic Lantern Theatres, darkened auditoriums with flickering screens draw audiences into magical worlds where fish can talk, motorcycles leap canyons, and love comes even for those who eat crackers in bed. The partnering multiplex theatres and cinemas show recently released blockbuster flicks at 15 locations spread across Canada, each of which retains its own unique personality and honours any historic roots. In Edmonton, the Princess Theatre’s original 1915 auditorium, complete with balcony, golden drapes, and red walls, accommodates moviegoers with babies or pet hyenas inside a soundproof cry room. In Saskatchewan, the circa-1930 Roxy Theatre preserves the ambience of a Spanish courtyard. As guests find their auditoriums at the Ontario locations, they can admire giant murals by local artist Fred Harrison.
