To Be Decided



Tickets & Reservations

Tickets are available for each screening two weeks in advance at Seven Main Cafe, 7 Main St. W (across from the Capitol Theatre).

Tickets purchased in advance at Seven Main Cafe, up to 4:30 pm on the day of the screening are $7. Tickets, if available, are also sold at the Capitol Theatre starting at 6:30 pm on the evening of the show, and are $8. Please remember that Reel Appreciation cards are stamped at time of purchase.

To ensure you get tickets, you can reserve tickets for each film.

Reservations can be made up until 4 pm on the day of the show. Tickets picked up and paid for prior to 4:30 pm the day of the show are $7. Tickets paid for at the door, even if reserved, will be $8. Deadline for pre-ordered and reserved ticket pick-up is 6:50 pm, at which time they may be sold to the general public.


Opportunities for local businesses to promote themselves to the community.

Corporate sponsorship is sought for each Reel Alternatives movie. Currentsponsorship rates are $150. For this the sponsor receives recognition on the tickets, on the web page and in the radio ads and newspaper articles relating to the film sponsored. They also are recognized in the theatre on the night of the screening, receive a pair of complimentary tickets to the screening, and have the opportunity to use the reverse of the tickets, or the evening itself, to build in a promotional initiative. Some sponsors have used the reverse of the tickets as a discount coupon, handed out promotional flyers, or donated items to be given away in our nightly draw.

If you are interested in learning more about sponsorship contact Kareen Burns at 705-787-1576 or send an inquiry to

Scholarship & Funding

Each year aspiring students who reside in the Huntsville and Lake of Bays area have the opportunity to apply for scholarship support through Reel Alternatives. Although there are no set funding amounts Reel historically supported students based on need, the project they have presented, or the type of school program that they will be attending. Past winners have completed short film documentaries, and attended some of the best film and media study programs in the Province. Applications are available in late April and are available from the Huntsville High School.
