Updated June 2017

The idea behind began in June of 1998. It started out with the simple concept of a web page that listed theatres in Winnipeg, the movies that were playing and the show times for each movie. This text only page, which was simple and fast, formed the basic concept behind

In October of 1998, the idea of transforming the simple single text page into a database driven, dynamic site with more content and functionality was formed.

On January 1, 1999, was officially launched on the Internet.

About a year later, in the fall of 2000, struck an agreement with MTS's This agreement had citymovies providing weekly updates of movie and showtime data which was automatically merged into their own format. This successful partnership lasted for almost 14 years, ending when migrated to and dropped movie listings from their website.

With our obligation to mywinnipeg ended, and traffic to the site dwindling, the Friday updates quietly ended after 16 years, on December 26, 2014.

I will keep the domain around for a few more years. Even though I haven't touched the site in over two years I can't bring myself to take it down completely.

A sincere thanks to those involved in the project. Brian, Sunil, Lonnie, I could not have done any of this without you. Thanks to the staff at mywinnipeg for their patience with me over the years and for creating one of the most hassle free arrangements I've had in my career.

A much belated, but sincere thanks to all those visitors over the years, thanks for supporting this local effort.

As always, Enjoy the movies!
