Another Cinema Option for Northumberland via
The Toronto International Film Festival's Film Circuit.
Northumberland Film Sundays
We are a group of film lovers dedicated to offering our community a broad range of movies not otherwise available on our local big screens.
We are a not-for-profit group and periodically we will make contributions to Northumberland County charities when a cash surplus permits.
Films are shown at the Northumberland Mall Theatres in Cobourg, Ontario at 4.00 pm on selected Sundays. We also produce a Film Festival on the last weekend in January.
The current program is shown below; the Program page shows the current program plus earlier programs.
Update re Mall Theatre
You have probably heard about the problems at the Mall Theatre but be assured that Northumberland Film Sundays is a separate entity and not affected except that we are temporarily without a venue. Our first film for the coming season is scheduled for September 28th and tickets scheduled to be on sale August 22. We are hoping that before that time, we can find a way to show our season of films.
Updates will be on this site or you can subscribe to our newsletter.

About Land Ho Aaron Katz and Martha Stephens blend their respective talents amidst the awe-inspiring landscapes of Iceland, where ex-brothers-in-law Colin and Mitch are vacationing in an effort to stave off the blues. Forced retirement and primal doubts are just a few of their worries, but these two old pals find solace in the simple ease of each other's company. Part buddy-comedy and part travelogue, Land Ho! paints a lively picture that somehow crosses between a holiday with a zany uncle and a night out with your best buds.
