Centretown Movies screenings take place in Dundonald Park, 512 Somerset St. W. between Bay and Lyon. Our theatre floor is a grass field, regulars usually bring something more comfortable to sit on. The park is wheelchair accessible, it has a great playground for children and lots of room for all your friends.
Taking The Bus
Our theatre is well served by Ottawa’s public transit system. Bus route 2 (Rideau Centre/Bayshore) stops at Dundonald Park every 15 minutes on Friday and Saturday evenings. Routes serving Bank Street, Bronson and Gladstone Avenue and The Transitway are also within walking distance. Visit OC Transpo for system maps and scheduling information. Visitors from Quebec can also bus it to the movies on STO routes that serve Wellington Street.
Riding Your Bike
Cycling is great way to get to Centretown Movies. There are no bike racks in the park but there are many street signs around that work just as well. Remember to bring a light for your bike as it will be quite dark by the time the film is over.
Driving Your Car
Metered street parking is available along Maclaren, Bay and many of the other streets close to Dundonald Park. Finding an unused parking spot in Centretown (especially on a Friday or Saturday evening) can be a challenge, you may want to leave a couple minutes early.
What to Bring
Our theatre is located on a soft, grassy field with no chairs. We encourage everyone to bring something comfortable to sit on. Suggestions include lawn chairs, camping chairs, blankets, foam mats, etc.
Bring your friends, bring your family, bring your parents and your children. Bring your pets if you have some, borrow one if you don’t!
Admission to all of Centretown Movies screenings is pay-what-you-can. Proceeds from Saturday night screenings benefit Centretown Movies, Friday night screenings benefit the community organization that hosts the event.
What to Leave Behind
Consumption of alcohol and smoking are not permitted in City of Ottawa parks and will not be tolerated during Centretown Movies events.
