FoundLocally has the most complete best movie listings

If it's movies you want, it's movies we give! We have movie showtimes, updated by Thursday noon, to help plan your weekend. We have nice capsule movie reviews to decide which flicks are worthwhile, and even "Top 15" movie rankings each Friday showing what theatre owners think of the movies (why wait for Monday's weekend movie grosses?).

Checkout the other things happening in the local entertainment scene, as well as the many festivals throughout the year.


Halifax Restaurants

Economy Shoe Shop restaurant

Halifax has hundreds of restaurants, ranging from diners and fast food for families and a quick bite, up to the four-star establishments where a nice dinner for two can easily be a hundred dollars, before wine. Halifax (of course) has its fair share of seafood and even sushi, as well a diverse complement of ethnic cuisine. The nightlife is really hopping during tourist season, but still good during the post-secondary academic year, too.


Halifax Drinking Spots

Bartender Pouring Drinks

Check out the area's bars, lounges, pubs and coffee shops. There's lots of places to go out and meet your friends (or ones you don't know yet!)


Halifax Sports & Recreation

Bike & Walking Trail at the Lighthouse

There are lots of sports opportunities in Halifax and around Nova Scotia. Yes, we have some semi-pro competitive sports, but Halifax is an active city. It seems everybody is doing something to stay in shape. FoundLocally has descriptions and information about over 40 sports. Get involved, alone, on a team, or in a league!
