Canada Master List of Movie Stores [Ontario]

I thought I'd start making a list of "one-off" "ma & pa" movie stores in and around where I live, but then thought it would be better if I did it for the entire province and post it here (hopefully with the help of all of you!). A lot of these stores are hidden gems and almost completely unknown unless you're local. So I hope together we can amass a great source to help out us collector's and those retailers.

Stores that I'll exclude from the list would be:
- bog box stores like Best Buy and Future Shop
- larger chains like HMV
- pawn shops or other shops that deal predominantly deal in used items (The Beat Goes On, The Hock Shop etc.)

PLEASE LEAVE SPECIFIC DETAILS ABOUT THE STORE ie NAME OF BUSINESS & STREET ADDRESS. THANK YOU!

I guess Sunrise Records does not count either? Dont understand why Cinema 1 would count then. There is an iNetvideo store somewhere in Quebec frequented by white rodents.

Ya, I'd say Sunrise wouldn't count. I included Cinema 1 because they are first and foremost a movie store.

I like this idea for the list! I would add Entertainment Deals (71 Lakeshore Drive, North Bay) to the list.

I wouldn't mind seeing some used shops listed as well. As somebody who travels often enough and enjoys the hunt of harder to find releases, I'm always stopping in places like The Beat Goes On. Maybe just tag them as [Used] in the listing?

Well I just thought if people are posting suggestions, you can just cut and paste to the original post... truthfully, there are probably only a handful of places in other provinces. In fact, I live in Saskatchewan and can't think of ANY, the two suggestions I had in mind are both in B.C.

Unfortunately, it seems like Blu-Ray Bin has closed. The website is down, and according to the response to an e-mail I sent the actual store is closed, as well.

Another one bites the dust.
LG OLED65E6P, Oppo UDP-203 & Denon AVR-X7200WA.
Polk RTiA9 (x2) Front L/R, CSiA6 Center, RTiA5 (x2) Surround L/R, DSW PRO 660 wi Subwoofer

The site is still up for me. Has:

"Thank you for visiting! We'll be back online shortly! Please note that our website might be down several times during the day depending on our in-store traffic!

You can reach us via e-mail at dvdsnextgengaming@gmail.com.

Thank you for your patience!"
