Membership and Admission Prices


Since 1914, Playhouse Cinema has been a staple in Hamilton’s Barton Village community. Lovingly restored and re-opening in 2019, Playhouse is a hub for independent, international, cult and classic films.

At the Playhouse Cinema we value our customers, after all, they're the reason we're still around today! As a bonus for customers who come back again and again, we offer a $14.00 membership card which is annually renewable.

Membership is a great way to support this historic theatre while receiving exclusive benefits as a movie-goer.


  • Independently owned movie theatre in a preserved historic venue
  • All of the programming Playhouse offers; Talking Pictures series, 35mm film screenings, films festivals, holidays classics, cult classics, trilogy series, guest speakers, concerts and more.
  • The revitalization of the creative Barton Village neighbourhood.


  • $4.00 off regular priced movie tickets each time you present your membership card at the box office,
  • $4.00 off our special 35mm film screenings when you present your membership card at the box office,
  • Discounted member’s snack bar combo,
  • Admission to Free-For-Members screenings!

Once a member has come to more than 3 shows, the card has paid for itself. See more than three movies a year and you are practically earning money just by sitting and watching movies… We think it's the best deal around!

To become a member, just ask to buy a $14.00 membership card the next time you're buying a ticket (or purchase in advance online while buying tickets) - you'll get the discount right away!
