  • Okotoks Cinema
    The staccato sound of popcorn popping, a concession stand that takes only cash—at Okotoks Cinemas, moviegoers get the classic theater experience with a twist. That twist is a modern touch where it counts: inside the theater after the lights go down. Brand-New Films Most of the flicks that light up the screens are Hollywood releases, premiering the same day they do in LA, while other films make their debut within two weeks. Movies flicker to life in full digital picture and sound, including 3D capabilities when superheroes or giant marauding lizards are involved. Extras Pair popcorn with soda or slushy drinks, snag some candy for dessert, and settle into the theaters' upgraded plush seats. They're set stadium-style, so no matter how many hats you want to wear, you'll likely not block the person behind you. The theater also hosts celebrations for birthdays or other events, with popcorn, candy, and soda for everyone.

  • Fiddler Green Pub
    Fiddlers Green Pub exudes the lived-in charm of a British neighborhood bar, albeit with some modern touches. Pressed tin ceilings and soft lighting complement the rich, dark woodwork, while flat screen TVs at the bar ensure patrons never have to miss a soccer or hockey game. As might be expected, the menu features familiar British classics, including hearty shepherd's pie, fish and chips, and yorkshire pudding stuffed with slow-roasted Alberta beef and accompanied by horseradish dipping sauce. At the same time, the cooks seek inspiration beyond British borders when preparing items such as steamed edamame, or hand-breaded wings coated with one of 18 available sauces and seasonings. Since no pub meal is complete without a drink in-hand, the bartenders also mix cocktails and pour 20-ounce imperial pints of local and imported drafts.

  • Globe Cinema
    In the 1600s, the Globe Theatre brought the best storytelling of its time to the people of London. Today, the Globe Cinema does the same for Calgary. This independently owned arthouse theater has been serving the city since 1995, and it specializes in movies that push the envelope artistically, narratively, and philosophically. Previous runs have included documentaries on H.R. Giger, the 2015 Indian epic Baahubali, and Andy Warhol's Blood for Dracula. Of course, they're also not above hosting an '80s blockbuster night now and then, either. Whether checking out a forgotten classic, a foreign masterpiece, or dropping in as a part of one of Calgary's many film festivals, audiences at the Globe are always sure to expand their horizons.

  • Calgary's Best Pubs
    Limericks Traditional Public House conjures an atmosphere of old-timey Hibernian hospitality coupled with hearty pub meals such as juicy burgers, Irish boxty, fish 'n' chips, and inventive sliders and starters. Named for Yeats's favourite form of poetry, Limericks ensconces visitors in warmly lit, rustic splendour, nestling them among stained glass-lamps and dark mahogany tables littered with glasses of craft beer or Irish whiskey. The multi-storeyed bar comforts travellers with crackling fireplaces and leather booths, as well as modern amenities such as sports broadcasts on flat-screen TVs and time machines equipped with GPS navigation.:m]]

  • Plaza Theatre
    Plaza Theatre has been a part of the Calgary community for more than eight decades. Housed within a converted garage, the theatre opened in 1935, back when shows cost just 10 cents and carrier pigeons disrupted screenings more often than cell phones. Today, behind its stucco facade, Plaza Theatre entertains guests with a lineup of unique movies, including independent releases and cult classics that frequently fill the 370-seat space to its capacity. Visitors don't just come for the shows, however. They also come for the popcorn, which is made fresh daily and enhanced with Plaza's own secret-recipe topping.
