The King's Speech is Somewhere (else)

UPDATE: We will be showing The King’s Speech on April 3, 6 & 7.

Unfortunately, The Mayfair’s scheduled screenings of The King’s Speech (March 11-14 & 17) have been cancelled.


In early February, we booked The King’s Speech from distributor Alliance Atlantis.

On February 27, The King’s Speech won four Oscars.

On March 8 (three days before we were scheduled to start showing The King’s Speech), Alliance Atlantis informed us that they would NOT be sending us the print of the film. They feel they can make a little more money if they continue to play it at The World Exchange, instead of at your neighbourhood cinema.

In its place, we’re presenting Sofia Coppola’s critically acclaimed drama, Somewhere. (Which is brilliant, and you should definitely see.)


We sincerely regret any inconvenience.

If you’d like to let Alliance Atlantis know how you feel about the situation, you can leave a message on their Facebook page or call them directly at 416-967-1164.

We’re sure they’d be happy to hear from you.

Hum… Alliance reaction is understandable, but not really nice for a theatre like Mayfair. It could have been nice for you to take advantage of the King’s Speech Oscar buzz…

But Somewhere is indeed a great movei, a nice experience… And honestly, I was more seduced by Somewhere than by the King’s Speech

OK, just for that I’m NOT going to go see it at World Exchange.

Alliance clearly doesn’t care about grindhouse, despite their “Hobo with a shotgun”.
On another note, their upcoming “Insidious” is absolutely awful too.
