TORONTO, ON, (TSX: CGX), October 17, 2016 – Cineplex Entertainment (“Cineplex”) today announced that it will be replacing all of the seats at Cineplex Odeon Victoria Cinemas with luxurious, fully-reclining seats. All seven of the theatre’s auditoriums will be upgraded from standard cinema seats to fully-reclining seats in the upcoming months. Construction on this project begins today and is expected to be completed by early 2017.
The high-back, extra-wide seats recline at the touch of a button for maximum comfort while enjoying a film. The concept has been rolled out at select Cineplex theatres nationwide and has proved to be very popular with Canadian movie-goers.
“We are always looking for new and innovative ways to enhance the movie-going experience for our guests,” said Pat Marshall, Vice President, Communications and Investor Relations, Cineplex Entertainment. “Our guests absolutely love our fully-reclining seats and we’re confident that the Victoria community will find it an ultra-luxurious and relaxing way to enjoy a film.”
Movie-lovers don’t need to worry though as Cineplex Odeon Victoria Cinemas will remain open to the public during the renovations. While all of the theatre’s seven auditoriums will transition to fully-reclining seats over the coming months, Cineplex will undertake the installation and reopen the auditoriums in a phased approach.
