Dolphin Theatre

The Dolphin Theatre in Burnaby really is an amazing find. Unlike some of the larger theatres, this place gives you a real quality movie experience at very reasonable prices. Staff are very helpful and friendly doing their best to make sure you enjoy yourself. And it really is hard not to seeing as general admission is normally about $7. Unless of course it’s Tuesday in which case its $2. Yes that’s right, the Dolphin Theatre still has Toonie Tuesdays!

Even the pop and popcorn are priced so reasonably that grabbing some won’t burn a hole in your wallet. And it should be noted that the movies shown aren’t 2 or 3 weeks old but proper first run movies. They even have late shows, so there really isn’t any skimping out.

With such service available you would also think that this place would become overly busy with long line ups, similar to those of the other major theatres. However this simply isn’t the case as usually there is just a comfortable number of people. Even the popcorn is of a higher cut then would be the norm! Seats are cozy and comfortable provide a great view of the screen no matter where you sit.

Also when it comes to parking there is quite a bit of free parking located around the theatre, so you needn’t worry about that. Check out their website ( to learn about currently playing movies as well as view trailers of each one. Or if you are looking to book for a party you can do that on their site as well. If you do bring kids for a party there is booster seating available as to be sure they can see the movie. All makes for a great movie experience.

Grabbing a movie here is always a great way to spend a rainy Burnaby day. With such excellent prices and a real quality experience the Dolphin Theatre really does set itself apart.

    The dolphin is one of my favorite theaters. Just the fact that they still have twoonie tuesdays means its far above the rest in my books. yeah sure they there are only two screens but you just can’t beat the price. 7 bucks!! you go to silvercity and its like $12!!! yeah definitely sticking with this place.
