I drove all the way in to Victoria to see A Star is Born. Now I find it in your theatre!!! I wish I'd known!
i love the duncan caprice theater
July 29, 2018
I've been going to the Duncan Caprice theater since I was a little kid, and I love it now even more than I did then. Their popcorn is unparalleled: I recently went to Cineplex theater in Langford and got buttered popcorn but rather than actual butter, they use some kind of super dry butter-like seasoning. It was dry as all hell and terrible. Meanwhile, the staff at the Duncan Theater offer to LAYER the REAL butter -- that is, put some in the middle of the bag, and then more on top. You can't beat that. Plus, the place has an authentic retro vibe that gives it real small town personality and appeal that you will not find in any of the big fancy theaters. Long live the Duncan Theater.
Cowichan Valley deserves better.

No cooling system, gets very warm on a hot day. Made me wish I was at home watching the movie on netflix. The place is very dated... we're talking shag carpet on the walls. I imagine some hipster might find it cool, but I find it feels dirty. There was a lump of what I'm assuming was gum on the floor under my seat, which is also where I had to put my drink container as there were no cup holders. I made my daughters pick their purses up off the floor. The upholstery on the chairs looked newer, but I kept feeling like I had something crawling on me throughout the movie, bringing on some anxious thoughts about bed bugs. Must have just been the beads of sweat forming on my body due to the lack of a cooling system. The movie was great (incredibles 2 in 3D), but I couldn't help but notice either a stain or cut on the lower middle portion of the screen. In my opinion this place needs to be torn down. The Cowichan Valley deserves better.
The only theatre in town

You theatre needs a serious cleaning. The ceiling and walls in the theater a filthy. Screen has a huge stain. You should have 1 line for tickets only instead of waiting in line
Nice I guess... but not clean

Get Some Adult themed movies.

This theatre was recently purchased and it was my understanding from the article in the local paper that this theatre was going to offer reel movies thereby increasing the amount of selection for the adult viewer. This has not occurred and in fact there is even less selection for adult themed movies, indie movies are non existent, just seems to be a venue for marvel comic movies and Hollywood remakes. Get some variety its BORING.

Went to see Black Panther today. Unfortunately they were having serious issues with the sound. Scratchy(distortion) sounds throughout and the voices were not very loud. Multiple people left early. And still selling tickets to the next show. A very bad experience.
Expect to wait a while if you only want admission

In the past you could buy your admission ticket at the door. You had a choice if you wanted snacks. Now you have to stand in a long concession line waiting to pay for a simple movie ticket. I have dietary issues so I don't purchase any food items, so why should I have to wait in the concession line? They need to fix their ceiling tiles as one looks like it will fall any day. They also need to fix a mark on one of the screens. I like to support local businesses so I hope they make a few changes.
Cool old theatre

Cool old theatre not like the new theatres with better sound and picture but still has s small town feel. Enjoy going here to spend a night out.
It's a nice older theatre

This is an older theatre, no cup holders for drinks, but it's clean and has a nice ambience. The popcorn is the best I have tasted in a theatre. It tastes like real popcorn and has been fresh each time we've been there.
