Cineplex Cinemas Yonge-Dundas gets VIP treatment

Oct 16, 2013

Cineplex Entertainment announced plans to open its latest VIP Cinemas at Toronto’s Cineplex Cinemas Yonge-Dundas in mid-2014.

VIP Cinemas are a premium, adults-only moviegoing experience that offers service at your seat, comfortable reserved seating, a licensed lounge and auditoriums, specialty appetizers and entrees, and a dedicated box office.

When the renovation is complete, six traditional auditoriums will be transformed into five VIP Cinema auditoriums and a licensed lounge. The renovated theatre will be renamed Cineplex Cinemas Yonge-Dundas and VIP, and will feature the new VIP Cinemas along with an UltraAVX auditorium, an IMAX auditorium and 16 traditional auditoriums.

Cineplex Cinemas Yonge-Dundas, located at 10 Dundas East, will remain open during construction. Construction began on Oct. 15.

The announcement is the latest step in Cineplex Entertainment’s strategy to expand VIP Cinemas to Canada’s largest city. The company previously announced plans to add VIP Cinemas to a number of new and existing Toronto-area theatres including: Cineplex Odeon Queensway Cinemas (VIP Cinemas to open in late 2013), the Downtown Markham development (theatre to open in 2014), the Shops at Don Mills (theatre to open in 2014) and SilverCity Yonge-Eglinton Cinemas (VIP Cinemas to open in 2015).

Hunger Games - Mockingjay Pt 1
Film Review: The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1

Darker, less action-packed first half of the final installment of the popular franchise moves from arenas to rubble aplenty as Jennifer Lawrence’s super-heroine is called upon to serve her beleaguered and much-destroyed nation as propaganda instrument and leader. Fans of the books and previous two films get a less flashy palette here, but the engaging characters and strong story return to stir interest for the scheduled November 2015 finale. More »
