    A shadow of what it once was. No exhibitions, very few screenings. Bloody budget cuts totally decimated it.

    Pay and display parking, but there are 2 hr free parking around the corners, of you are just having a quick visit.

    Loved seeing a double bill of Hobo with a Shotgun and The Human Centipede 2 here.

    The Arc Cinema within the NFSA is beautiful and shows a variety of films. Buy a book of 10 tickets and pay only $8 per screening.
