Iqaluit: Astro Hill Movie Theater

My final Iqaluit food post isn't really a restaurant, but it's one of the least expensive places to go in town! Shockingly, the movie theater is one of the more reasonably priced theaters I've been in. It's not the biggest, and the lobby's a little dingy, but they have 2 screens and it's really no different than the cheap-y theaters we used to go to for $4 movies on Tuesdays...and besides, it's a theater that shows current movies. Can't complain about that luxury!

Movies aren't horribly priced either - I believe they're $12 for a regular movie and $15 for a 3D movie. Yes, they even have 3D movies! When I was there, they were showing Iron Man 3 and Epic, both in 2D and 3D. I haven't seen any of the Iron Man movies, and was going to go see Epic one evening but the reviews seemed mixed and I didn't have $12 cash on me (they only take cash). Oh well, next time! The day I left they were starting Star Trek and I was sad because I've got a crush on Spock and wouldn't have minded seeing it. ;) They do have a website that lists movies and showtimes, but I'm not sure it's entirely accurate since it listed different movies for the week I was there than what was actually showing...so, show up and take a chance I guess?



Boy, do I wish that we had a movie theater here in Baker...it's the popcorn smell. Gets me every time!
