Travellers who are visiting Ottawa with their families may want to expose their children to some new cultures and customs. A great way to have the little ones learn about new ideas and languages is by seeing a movie while in town. For instance, several theatres often show French language films geared toward children, which can be a great way to introduce new words or perhaps help kids practise what they are learning in school.
Cinemas like the ByTowne often show new releases from Canada and France, as well as old classics on special nights that can be enjoyed by all. Since the late 1980s, this venue has offered residents and guests a chance to see unique films from far away places as well as innovative pieces created by talented local filmmakers. Tickets for the shows are available through the cinema's website, and the venue provides discounts for children and students who wish to attend.
Other theatres in the greater Ottawa area that show both French and English movies include South Keys, Cine-Starz and SilverCity Gloucester. Having fun and watching a foreign or local movie together can be a great way to spend the afternoon while taking tours of Ottawa this spring.
