Come to Stratford early and stay late! Construction delays may be significant in summer 2019 so be sure not to miss out on any fun!

Hwy 6 to Embro/401: Replacement of large culvert Aug-Nov

Expect delays but road will not be closed. Hwy 7 detour is suggested as above, if there is an overlap.

Hwy 8 between Stratford and Shakespeare: In progress

Beginning in early June, stretches of this road between the west end of Shakespeare and the east end of Stratford will be reduced on weekdays to a single lane, with flag people controlling traffic in both directions. Delays may be lengthy, so please allow additional time for your trip. (Both lanes are expected to be open on evenings and weekends.)




Queen of the Square Cinema is a state-of-the-art screening venue installed inside Stratford’s historic City Hall Auditorium.


Our mission is to showcase the best in independent films and performing arts cinema as well as provide a home for special community screening events.

Stratford’s historic city hall, built between 1898 and 1900, is considered to be one of the finest examples of Queen Anne Revival architecture in Canada.  Nicknamed the Queen of the Square soon after it opened, Stratford City Hall is now a National Historic Site.

A key feature of the building is the spectacular auditorium originally designed for community events, travelling entertainers and cultural activities.  

We’ve adopted the name Queen of the Square Cinema to pay tribute to the building’s rich heritage.

In addition to our regular indoor screenings, Queen of the Square Cinema hosts 'Movies Under the Stars', free family- friendly outdoor movies on select Sunday's at dusk in Stratford's newly developed Market Square! 

We look forward to welcoming you!




Don’t miss the fun due to construction delays!

“Stratford itself is the type of walkable wholesome town Rodgers and Hammerstein might write a musical about.”
