Are you someone who loves to watch movies they’ve already seen? Love to rewatch the classics? Or maybe you’d kill for a chance to catch a few iconic flicks that are long gone from the theatres. Well, I have some good news for you, Cineplex Cinema’s are bringing back the Flashback Film Fest!

The festival returns on February 2nd and runs through to the 8th, and showcase a total of 15 movies. The festival is annual but this marks just the second year it operates under its current name. Cineplex Cinema’s regularly offers older movies but they tend to be animated movies on Saturday and Sunday mornings, so this is a chance to see some more adult movies on the big screen.

So what movies are on offer, well here is a quick breakdown of all fifteen flicks:

There’s some really fantastic movies there, from a Roger Moore James Bond movie to the Oscar-winning Terminator 2. You can also catch family-favourites like Back To The Future and Gremlins, as well as the Cornetto Trilogy. If you’re unfamiliar with the Cornetto Trilogy, it’s three loosely connected English movies starring Simon Pegg and Nick Frost – those movies are Shaun of The Dead, Hot Fuzz, and The World’s End, in that particular order.

Admission to these movies costs $8.99 per flick, and will score you 50 Scene Points. Alternatively, you can buy a pass to see three movies for $7.99 each, which scores you 150 Scene Points. On the other hand, if you’re a huge movie buff you can check out all 15 movies for a discounted $75, which will net you a full 750 Scene points!

There are many participating theatres throughout Canada and the GTA, but Rathburn Road and Winston Churchill are the two closest to you. The festival only lasts for a week but it’s a perfect opportunity to catch a movie you otherwise could never see on the big screen! While you wait for the Toronto International Film Festival to return, this should scratch your movie itch!
