Great podcast for a gem of a theatre!

For "the city that fun forgot," there sure is a lot of fun to be had with the gang at the Mayfair, and this podcast proves it! The hosts are funny, knowledgeable and passionate about film, and have great insight about independently-run cinemas, which are far too rare nowadays.

Even if you don't live in Ottawa, this is still a great podcast if you like hearing smart people talk about interesting movies!

(Oh, and good luck on the dating scene, Andrew and Anya! ;))
