The Ridge Film House

A Cinematic Gem in Fort Erie, Ontario

Downtown Ridgeway, Ontario is a thriving commercial district with a wide mix of things to do and see. Boutique shopping, quaint restaurants, and unique galleries all contribute to Ridgeway’s distinct village feel.

Adding to the magic and charm of the 200-year-old village is The Ridge Film House. Originally opened as a boutique theatre, the cinema was later closed due to flood damage. Now, with new owners and a new name, the Ridge Film House is once again a staple in downtown Ridgeway.

A Paradise for Film Enthusiasts

Featuring an in-house bar and comfortable seating, the theatre shows a variety of movies each week in two 39-seat rooms. Film lovers can watch independent, foreign, classic, and second-run movies that are not available in larger cinemas. Each film is carefully selected to give guests the opportunity to experience a variety of genres suitable for the entire family. Classics like Mrs. Doubtfire and The Maltese Falcon are often shown, as well as newer films like Night at the Museum.

Additionally, you can become a member at The Ridge Film House and receive special perks. For the annual price of $25, members receive three free movies per year, plus discounted ticket prices for all other shows.

Things To Do After the Show

Looking for something to do after your movie? Take a stroll along Ridgeway’s quiet streets or sandy shoreline. Ridgeway is fast becoming Fort Erie’s cultural capital. Big name bands, art exhibitions, and performance art take place on an ongoing basis throughout the year.

Be sure to also stop by Ridgeway’s craft brewery, The Brimstone Brewing Co., which crafts traditional style ales using natural ingredients. Or perhaps pay a visit to 335 on the Ridge for some great food and drinks.
