We recently went to a movie here and as time has gone by the place has become much busier but is still not crazy compared to many of the movie theatres I've been to. We were in a rush so while someone else parked the car I ran in and bought the tickets. This was fast and easy and reserving... More

When to see the IMAX movie (300 squeal) with my son. I am a senior and the ticket agent was quick to let me know that it was "loud". I went from the theater to Canadian Tire (across the street) and purchased some ear plugs. I never regretted it!! The theater is too loud!!!

We've been here on a number of occasions and I like it's location as its a 5 minute drive from our place. Very clean and well kept, great popcorn and the theatres are all nicely done. Lots of free parking and conveniently located near numerous stores and hotels. I will be returning on quite often.

ya, I guess it depends on the movies your going to see. The theater is like any other. But on that day, I was fortunate enought do go to Kingston when Superman, Man of steel was playing. Alson, it's right across the Mariot hotel. Awsome.

Nice new theatre, however the mandatory reserved seating can be a problem. We tried to book 5 seats in a central row, but people had booked the center two so that left one seat between us and them and the system would not allow that. Strange for a movie with about 15 people in the theatre. I can see this... More

A nice new theatre staff was helpful and courteous, seats very comfy and recline, if you go tues its much cheaper. better bang for your buck.Beware the concession food is crazy expensive it cost more than the movie ticket.

We went to see Ironman 3 on Saturday May 3rd and were NOT IMPRESSED by the long-winded preamble presented by theatre staff. This might go over well with an audience of under-12, but that certainly didn't reflect the actual age group present. Also, the sound level was too loud, and not in a good way, and the 3D glasses were... More

I have always gone to the Cineplex at the RioCan Centre to watch movies, but wanted to check this new theatre out so we went to see 'Oz' in IMAX 3D. It is was absolutely amazing. We were able to reserve our seats before going to the theatre, the screen was enormous and the sound was insane (possibly too loud?).... More

We saw a movie here just after the theatre opened and were impressed with the cleanliness and the large space inside the individual theatres. They wisely did not include an arcade area inside the front entrance, which is a plus in my opinion. Lots of parking and easy access from Division Street or Sir John A. Macdonald Blvd.

This references the old theatre, the new one is near the highway off Division, and it is a nice facility. Chairs are plush, sound is good.
