The writers and actors are on strike so the film industry will not offer much of anything for some time. And Landmark is charging an online ticket fee on online purchases as of September 30th.

$1.50 on tickets purchased via but if you join their Landmark Extras program it’ll be $1 per ticket up to a maximum of $4.

This mirrors Cineplex‘s online ticket fee, which was introduced in June 2022, and is also $1.50 per online ticket purchase but reduced for Scene+ members to $1 per ticket.

The Competition Bureau had sued Cineplex in May 2023 but I guess it wasn’t successful. I was unable to find any updates on this issue.
