Located in the heart of downtown Toronto, steps from the Yonge/Carlton intersection and the College subway station, Carlton Cinema is the landmark destination for avid cinephiles.

    The Magic Lantern Carlton Cinema has been refurbished with a newly designed lobby, upgraded seating and projection system.

    Carlton is also Ontario's first full-licensed cinema where customers can enjoy drinks while watching movies.

    With 9 auditoriums, "The Carlton", as it is popularly known, showcases a wide variety of independent film, from Canadian to foreign, and some Hollywood fare.

      Oh, Hai Toronto! We're the home of The Room! Catch it at the Carlton the last Saturday of every month at 11PM.
      Popularly referred to as 'The Citizen Kane of bad movies', THE ROOM has been attracting wild, rowdy, plastic-spoon-and-sarcastic-one-liner-throwing crowds across North America since its inception in 2003. THE ROOM is a unique bad-movie phenomenon that everyone needs to experience in a theatre at least once in their lives

      Next screening: Saturday, May 28th at 11PM!

      Tickets on sale NOW at the Carlton box office!

      The Room is an electrifying American black comedy about love, passion, betrayal and lies, starring writer/director Tommy Wiseau as a successful banker with a great respect for?and dedication to?the people in his life, especially his future wife Lisa (Juliette Danielle). As the film depicts friendships and relationships in the lives of its five major characters, it raises life's real and most-asked question: ''Can you really trust anyone?''

      Don't miss your chance to experience Wiseau's epic masterpiece. This quirky black comedy is a riot!

      ...and don't forget your spoons!
