Welcome to the Monarch Theatre!

The Monarch Theatre is debatably the OLDEST running movie theatre in Canada located downtown Medicine Hat.
Its single screen shows new, unique and classic movies.

This Week's Movie


This week (Apr. 11, 12, 13, 16 at 7:30pm; also, matinee on Apr. 13 at 1:00pm), we will show The Lego Movie.

Rating: G

Computer-animated adventure comedy. The original 3D computer animated story follows Emmet (Chris Pratt) an ordinary, rules- following, perfectly average LEGO minifigure who is mistakenly identified as the most extraordinary person and the key to saving the world. He is drafted into a fellowship of strangers on an epic quest to stop an evil tyrant (Will Ferrell), a journey for which Emmet is hopelessly and hilariously underprepared. --rottentomatoes.com

Monday Night At The Movies

On Monday, Apr. 21, 2014 at 7:30pm, Monday Night At The Movies presents 20 Feet From Stardom.

Rating: PG for coarse language.

Backup singers live in a world that lies just beyond the spotlight. Their voices bring harmony to the biggest bands in popular music, but we've had no idea who these singers are or what lives they lead, until now. --IMDb
