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 have been shown at the Northumberland Mall Theatres in Cobourg, Ontario at 4.00 pm on selected Sundays. For the 2014 Fall season, they will be shown at the Capitol in Port Hope. We also produce a Film Festival on the last weekend in January - location TBD.
The current program is shown below; the Program page shows the current program plus earlier programs.

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.
