Cineplex is taking a phased approach to reopening and anticipates that the majority of its theatres will reopen throughout the month of July, including its 16 other theatres across British Columbia. Its top priority has always been the health and safety of its employees and guests and creating a safe, comfortable and welcoming environment.

Visit Cineplex’s new landing pagethat outlines the Company’s three-phased approach to safely reopening. Some of these new measures include:

  • Launching reserved seating in all auditoriums across Canada; seating options will be automatically blocked off to ensure proper distance in every direction between guests
  • Reducing capacity in all auditoriums to allow for physical distancing
  • Enhancing cleaning practices throughout our facilities, with particular focus on high-contact surfaces, restrooms and seats
  • Accepting debit and credit payments only, with the exception of gift card purchases 
  • Limiting food offerings in theatres to Cineplex’s famous popcorn and other core concessions
  • Ensuring employees have the personal protective equipment they need
  • Making hand sanitizer readily available for guests and employees throughout our buildings
  • Keeping VIP Cinemas closed for now

To welcome movie-lovers back, Cineplex will be offering $5 tickets and showing popular new releases you may have missed in theatres like Bloodshot, The Invisible Man, Sonic The Hedgehog, Jumanji: The Next Level, Bad Boys For Life, Harley Quinn: Birds of Prey, The Way Back and I Still Believe. Plus, in select markets, theatres will be showing a curated selection of films from director Quentin Tarantino.
