It's a shame when I hear about people driving to Orillia to catch the same movie playing at The Norwood, a vintage theatre that opened in 1949. Built a year after its sibling, The Capitol in Huntsville, and run by the same family, it offers modern amenities with a nostalgic charm, and I love that its three theatres are named after the lakes.

    I've spent many a Friday night in the Norwood theatre. We used to hitch-hike into Bracebridge, watch the latest Elvis Presley or similar etc, and then hitch-hike home. Before all the development on Ball's flat (Can Tire etc) Hwy 118 out of town used to start at the edge of town by the Pine Point service station. We used to stand there with our thumbs out, and sooner or later got a ride, a couple times we got dropped off in the middle between Bracebridge and Milford Bay, and had to walk home.
    Thanks for sharing, and keep up the great photos.
