It's no surprise that all of us at Cineplex are huge movie fans. Whether it's buzzed-about indie films or big-budget blockbusters, we're here for it. And while we'll admit to being purists in the sense that we're happy watching movies the old-fashioned 2D way, we also believe in bringing more to the movie experience, and exploring all the ways that the future of moviegoing is changing. That's why we're continually introducing new technologies and experiences in our theatres; here's a list of some of the best, most popular, and attention-getting experiences from the past year.
Movies in 4DX
Whether it was The Lego Batman Movie, The Fate of the Furious, Marvel’s Guardians Of The Galaxy v2 or something more recent, there have been so many choices available to check out movies in 4DX since the theatre opened at Yonge & Dundas in 2016 that we can’t choose just one! In case you’re not familiar with 4DX, it’s a truly immersive movie experience in which action scenes on the big screen are enhanced by seat movements and sensory additions like fog and scent. It’s currently only at Toronto’s Yonge & Dundas theatre, so next time you’re in the area, check it out!
It's no surprise that we're big fans of director James Cameron, the man behind some of the biggest movies of all time with Titanic and Avatar! But we're also huge fans of his earlier works, the first blockbusters that really established him as a major creative force in Hollywood - The Terminator, Terminator 2: Judgment Day, and Aliens. Which is why we were thrilled when Terminator 2 came back to the big screen for a limited time, remastered by Cameron himself into 3D!Bonus: Click here to read our top 5 reasons why fans love T2!
Inhumans in IMAX
Marvel fans got a special treat this past September when the new TV show "Inhumans" premiered not in living rooms, but on the biggest screens possible in IMAX. While reviews of the show itself were mixed, it was a unique opportunity to see a large-scale TV production on the big screen and we hope it’s not the last time that an ambitious, epic TV show is available on the big screen!
Big Movie Marathon
This past August we got a chance to enjoy some classic and favourite movies back in theatres with the Big Movie Marathon! The Harry Potter series, the Fast and the Furious series, Pitch Perfect, Anchorman, Easy A, The Dark Knight and the list goes on. The chance to catch up on beloved franchises and, for many, see them on the big screen for the first time since initial release or the first time ever, was priceless – and all for a lowered ticket price, too! If you missed out don’t fret, you’ll have another chance to enjoy fan favourites and classics when selected movies come back to theatres with our Flashback Film Fest, Feb. 2-8th!
One Nighters in VIP
Have you been to One Nighters in VIP yet? If not, you are definitely missing out; we’re bringing girls’ night out to a whole new level, bringing back beloved rom-coms like Dirty Dancing and Clueless, and just plain coms like Mean Girls and Bad Moms to select VIP screens! From time to time we even invite special guests like Kelly Bishop to join us in one theatre and dish about their experiences making the iconic movie being screened. Gather your squad and plan your next night out with us!
There's a lot more in store for 2018 including new VR installations and brand new theatres opening soon, so as amazing as 2017 has been, we fully expect 2018 to set a whole new bar! Keep visiting Cineplex.com/news for the latest openings, launches, and more!
