Winnipeg is now home to the ultimate new spot for eats and entertainment with the opening of Cineplex Inc.'s The Rec Room at Seasons. Located off Sterling Lyon Parkway, the new complex spans over 42,000 square feet and offers delicious cuisine, exciting live entertainment, amusement gaming experiences and feature attractions -- all under one roof. The Rec Room at Seasons is the first location to open in Manitoba and features a variety of exciting attractions, including six lanes of luxury bowling, bar games like ping pong and pool, as well as the latest in virtual reality experiences from VRstudios.

Great food:

Inspired by Cineplex's vast and diverse country, it is sure to satisfy every appetite.
  • Prefer to eat while you compete? The quick service dining section, called The Shed, features premium poutines, savoury snacks and hand-helds, and a sweet selection of made-to-order funnel cakes.
  • Fancy a drink? The Rec Room features a huge bar where sports fans can choose from 16 draft beers including local options, share a bite and catch the big game on even bigger screens (Go Jets. Go Bombers.).
  • Searching for that perfect social setting? The Rec Room is the ideal spot for private events, with a private dining room for celebrations, meetings, team building, corporate events and parties.

And even more fun:

  • This is not your parent's rec room. The Rec Room at Seasons features a massive attractions area where gamers of all ages can play over 130 amusement games.
  • Looking for the ultimate redemption? Credits earned and tracked on RFID (radio-frequency identification) wristbands can be redeemed at The Trophy Case, a store filled with great prizes and nostalgia-inspired treats and toys.
  • Kick it old school with classic favourites like pool and ping pong or lace up for some friendly competition with six lanes of luxury bowling.
  • Make the great escape: The Rec Room also features the latest in virtual reality experiences from VRstudios, including a VRcade arena and Atom pods.
  • Care to level up your social life? The live performance space has the latest entertainment, including musical acts, comedy, DJs, trivia and karaoke.
