The Frederick Twin has had all of the seats replaced and installed digital projectors for both cinemas as of Summer 2014. Still showing first run films at discounted prices.

Davester35 commented about Empire to focus on Sobeys, sells theatres to Cineplex, Landmark on Jul 13, 2013 at 9:16 pm

Great… so Cineplex will practically have a monopoly in Southern Ontario. How much more can they charge for Popcorn and a drink?

I remember watching “Casino” here in the mid 90’s and was amazed at the curved screen and the 60’s style of the theatre. However, I seem to remember that the curved screen seemed to cause a focus issue around the sides of the screen.
It was a shame that it closed down and then eventually burned down.

Great First run theatre that throws back to the 80’s. Independently run, the Frederick Twin features 2 screens with reasonable concession prices and admission (Currently $6.50 general admission with $4 Tuesdays!) Another highlight is a large picture window into the projection booth so you can see the projector and platter system. The theatre is dated… looking like a Cineplex from the late 70’s/early 80’s… but that just ads to the charm. Talking to the staff, it is rumoured that they may switch to digital by the end of 2012. Note that they are cash only (there is an ATM on site) so they can keep their overhead low. They also feature a few arcade games in the lobby. The only setback is Screen #1 is the smaller of the two screen and has poor sound and appears to project on just a wall painted white. Fortunately most of the popular features are on Screen #2 (the larger theatre and screen.) Again, you can’t beat the price for first run movies in Kitchener.

Cinema was originally a single screen. Was split down the center and converted to 2 screens in 1979 after a fire damaged the theater.

Growing up in Southern Ontario, I recall commercials during the mid 70’s on Channel 29 (Buffalo/Grand Island) for the Como 6 Drive-in.
All I recall is that it’s in WNY somewhere.
