Cineplex to open theatre in Saskatoon on Friday

2019-10-21 12:46 ET - News Release

Mr. Ellis Jacob reports


The wait is over for Saskatoon movie lovers, with the opening of Cineplex Inc.'s brand new theatre complex this Friday at The Centre mall. Cineplex Cinemas at The Centre spans over 30,000 square feet and features luxury recliner seating. Tickets and showtimes are available today at the theatre's box office, on the Cineplex mobile app and on Cineplex's website.

The highly anticipated theatre offers an exciting range of movie-going experiences, including UltraAVX, reclining D-Box motion seats and an auditorium designed especially for families with young children. The first to open in Saskatchewan, the Cineplex Clubhouse features colourful decor, playful seating, a curated selection of family-friendly films and an indoor play structure where kids can climb, slide and explore before the movie begins.

"Movie lovers across Saskatoon have enjoyed coming to Cineplex Odeon Centre Cinemas for over 20 years, so we are thrilled to introduce this new state-of-the-art theatre to the community," said Ellis Jacob, president and chief executive officer, Cineplex. "Going to movies has always been about families and friends relaxing and spending time together, and the new Cineplex Cinemas at The Centre offers something for every guest, at every age."

Cineplex Cinemas at The Centre replaces the mall's former theatre, Cineplex Odeon Centre Cinemas, which closed its doors this week. In addition to the new features already mentioned, guests can enjoy a variety of concessions and delicious food options, including Cineplex's famous popcorn. Guests can also treat themselves to pizza from Outtakes as well as Cineplex's Melt Sweet Creations concept, which specializes in indulgent frozen desserts.

With the opening of the new theatre, Cineplex operates 165 theatres across Canada, including six theatres and a VIP Cinemas in Saskatchewan.
