I have been coming to this theatre for years. I like the old school feel and the popcorn rocks. Pricing is better than the chain theatres. I bought a membership which is a no brainer of you will go twice a year. My girlfriend doesn't want to go to other theatres and claims these are the comfiest seats of all... More

Still operating and keeping the name since 1937, the movie house is integral part of Beaches neighbourhood. Founded by Arthur Webster as 'The Pastime'. In the time, when many movie houses in Toronto are closing, they must be doing something right, to keep the doors open. I have been in Fox many times in the 1980's, but not the least... More

All beach dwellers know about this gem of a Theatre on Queen Street East. At over 100 years old, and Canada's Longest Running Theatre, it is a must visit. We are members, which will net you great discounts on both the movie tickets, and the concession stand. The seats are still plush red velvet, and the screen still has a... More

A wonderful walk down memory lane, in this 103 year old theatre. It has been restored beautifully and is warm, welcoming, quaint, comfy and a must visit. We watched 3D movie and enjoyed some popcorn in great surroundings. Staff are delightful. Recommend you purchase a membership and stop in frequently. We will.

I love the FOX. It's a great neighbourhood theatre showing a nice variety of films. The seats are comfortable, the popcorn is incredibly good, the staff are wonderful and nice, and they have great membership prices on tickets and concessions. Oh, and if you're feeling like it, you can enjoy a beer or wine with your movie. If you haven't... More

This neighborhood movie theatre is a little jewel. The seats are are oh so comfortable. The 2nd run movies are a great chance to catch up on hits one might have missed. Price is right, even better with annual membership. Love the fact that wine is now served as well!

Takes you back in time to a simpler movie going experience. You can shop or dine at a large array of shops and restaurants in the Beach area. The world famous Goof chinese restaurant is right across the street. Then take in a movie with comfy seating. You won't get a headache just going through the lobby. Very old school.... More

We were encouraged to have a night at the movies whilst staying with family in Toronto. The Fox Theater celebrated it's 100th anniversary this year apparently so we thought we would give it a go. The place is fantastic and reeks of history. Tickets were only CAN$11 each and drinks and snacks were not over priced especially compared to the... More

Bought 2 tickets, 1 large popcorn and 2 drinks online from Groupon for $15. What a deal! We live in the suburbs, but we had a great time at the Beaches, and we loved the feel of the Fox Theatre. It has so much charm. We saw a newly released movie; the place was almost full. It is a licensed... More

The Fox has been around a long time and is worth a visit - the theatre is old and charming with okay prices and delicious buttery popcorn! Movies are a combination of current, second run and foreign gems and you can usually find something interesting to see there.

Staying in East End

Neighbourhood Profile
East End
The East End is an eclectic amalgamation of areas that team up to make this district one of the most multi-faceted and alluring. Home to Toronto's LGBT community hub, Gay Village is alive and pumping day or night with friendly bars, nightclubs, and cafes – its thumb is on the pulse of excitement. For a more relaxed day, the East End has the largest collection of restored Victorian homes, and its stately streets, tree-lined and bursting at the seams with affluence, often sport farmers markets and street artists, epitomized by the effusive St. Lawrence Market. One of the most gorgeous of Toronto's neighborhoods, it also straddles Lake Ontario in an area called The Beach, where you'll find folks cycling and strolling along the sandy shorelines, getting some sun or enjoying shopping, dining, and pub options. For some fabulous food, the vivacious personalities running the restaurants in the East End's Greektown is only equaled by the fun and authenticity of the street stalls and restaurants at its expansive Indian Bazaar. 'Something for everyone' has never been so accurate.
