Highlands Cinema, Kinmount

#1 of 6 in Nightlife in Kawartha Lakes
Movie Theater · Specialty Museum
More than a cinema, it's an experience that takes you back through cinematic history!

With a self guided tour through the 4000 sq ft museum of film history that boasts one of the largest projector collections in Canada... Pre-dating back to the 1900's. There's fun for the whole family!

We have also added a "Hall of Horrors" where you can view 3D displays depicting iconic and famous horror films from through out the decades.

"Just us and the projectors and all you wonderful people out there in the dark" ... "K.S."


Dear Concerned Customers:

Over the last few months I have been contacted by various long term customers, offering to donate to the cause or do what they can to help. I have been resisting this as I am not entirely comfortable with the idea.

I have finally relented and decided if you truly feel stongly enough about Highlands Cinemas, and want to donate to the cause we will accept donations. The conditions we will impose are any money donated will go into a seperate account, until a decision on what we are going to do is made in Sept. At that time if we decide to go ahead the donations will go towards the upgrades that are necessary if we are to reopen next year. If we decide not to continue the donations will be returned to the people donating.

I am flattered that some people feel so strongly about this Theatre that evolved out of my life time interest in movies. If you decide you want to help, donations should be sent to Highlands Cinemas, Box 85, Kinmount, ON K0M 2A0 or can be handed in at the Ticket Window when you come for a show. Cheques should be made out to...

TO: Highlands Cinemas

PLEASE INCLUDE: Your full name and mailing address.

(your mailing address is for the purpose of returning donations should we have to close our doors for good)


Box 85,

Kinmount, ON.

K0M 2A0

Sincerely Yours,

Keith Stata

  • Awesome old time theatre if you like cinema at all I would highly recommend! The museum is amazing
  • This place is a must visit in Ontario!! Coolest movie theatre I've ever been to. Retro small theatres and seating. Plan for extra time to explore the museum. Concessions are reasonably priced. Cat sanctuary is an interesting addition. Can't wait to return!
  • Great visit to another era, good picture and sound quality. Just a little lacking in number of employees, which led to slower service. But very good. Love it here!
  • What a unique space! I've never had a movie going experience where the theater was almost more memorable and enjoyable than the movie itself. The entire area, from the parking lot, cat area and museum is a treat in itself. Worth the drive, just remember to bring a sweater it can get cold inside.
  • Lot’s of fun and great staff.
