Best Movie Theatre

Oxford Theatre

The Oxford actually won this category, but all three finalists are owned by Empire, and their parent company Sobey’s. Still, the Oxford provides some much-needed diversity in Halifax’s theatre market. We cornered two Oxford goers, Christine and Lawrence, before heading in to see Motorcycle Diaries. Christine says she likes the Oxford for the balcony and art deco decor. “It’s a really unique place,” adds Lawrence. “They show a lot of independent and foreign films you won’t see anywhere else in town.” 6408 Quinpool, 423-7488
