Hammers are still pounding and paint is still being applied as work continues on the new movie theatre in North Burnaby.
It’s going in at the Amazing Brentwood and I was given a tour of Cineplex’s Rec Room project that will be going in one floor below the movie theatre.
During the tour, I asked about the new movie theatre. It’s set to open sometime this spring, but I learned that it will be five screens and will be VIP only.
That means an adults-only experience. If you haven’t done VIP before, you are definitely missing out. The theatres at Metropolis at Metrotown don’t offer the VIP theatre experience.
I don’t drink alcohol, but Cineplex VIP will appeal to those looking to have a beer, wine or a cocktail during a night out at the movies.
VIP theatres also have an extensive menu of food that you can eat in the lounge before the movie, or you have food delivered right to your seat.
Speaking of seats, VIP seats are big and plush and they recline for a really comfortable experience. You also get to pick your seats ahead of time.
Look, I’m a parent and I love my daughter and stepson, but there are times when I want an adults-only experience, especially at the movies.
The new North Burnaby theatre is going to offer local adults that experience.
