On the border of the Kawarthas and the Haliburton Highlands, this village of 300 boasts an unusual demographic: More movie theatre seats than people. Highlands Cinemas, a 550-seat complex with five theatres showing first-run movies, has drawn customers from the surrounding area for more than two decades. This season — from May to Thanksgiving — 50,000 moviegoers are expected to enter Keith Stata's home to enjoy the movie experience in the middle of cottage country. "It's on the left as you go out of town, you can't miss it," said the clerk behind the counter of one of Kinmount's two general stores. Truth is, it could be easily missed.
