February 2008 — "Not much to say about this theatre. It's not as revered as a Plaza or Uptown, probably because it isn't a completely independent cinema, but at the same time it does exhibit some art-house flicks worth seeing. The biggest gripe with the place is how small the screens are in comparison to how many rows of seats the cinemas have. I may be exaggerating, but if you're sitting in the last row of their main screen and watching a foreign film, you may have to squint to read the subtitles. Well that, or it may just be time for you to get new glasses..."

October 2006 — "If your sick of Hollywood blockbusters, the Globe is certainly worth looking into. They play a number of unique shows from documentaries, independent films, "the best commercials" and more. It has an old "worn-in" feel to it, which carries from the lobby into the actual theatre, but this only adds to the atmosphere. This is the place to go if your looking for a change of pace from Cineplex Odeon and Famous Players. "
