What happened to the Ottawa movie listings?


We’ve had a few emails asking us what happened to OttawaStart’s movie listings. Here’s the story:

  • Our listings were provided by a third party called FilmCan, via a syndicated feed. They were a local company that provided the complete local theatre listings for a yearly subscription fee.
  • FilmCan was bought out early this fall by Tribute Publishing Inc. On October 19th, Tribute assumed control of the FilmCan web sites, and discontinued our syndicated service.
  • So far, we haven’t been able to find a similar subscription service that provides accurate listings at a reasonable subscription price — so until we do the movie listings are offline.
  • In the meantime, you can check out our Ottawa Movies Guide for links to local theatres and more.

And if you have any suggestions for great movie listings sites that we should add, please let us know!
