Ever wanted a drink or an appetizer other than popcorn while watching your favourite cine flick? Well now you can with Cineplex Entertainment announcing its plan to build a 43,000 square foot theatre in Calgary that includes adult only VIP auditoriums, private lounges and reserved seating.
Complete with larger upgraded seats and table tops in the armrest, movie-goers will be served appetizers and drinks right at their seat. They can also hang out at the licensed lounge before and after the movie.
The first of its kind in Calgary, the theatre will be located in in southeast at Seton Boulevard and Deerfoot Trail and is expected to open in 2014.
Edmonton received its first VIP Cinema earlier this year, and Calgary will be the sixth city in Canada to get one, the Calgary Sun reported.
“We are pleased to provide Calgary movie lovers with a cutting-edge theatre and access to the VIP Cinema experience,” said Ellis Jacob, President and Chief Executive Officer of Cineplex Entertainment in a press release. “There is simply no better way to experience going to the movies.”
Mike Langdon, director of communications for Cineplex Entertainment, told the Calgary Herald this is because Albertans are some of Canada’s most frequent movie-goers.
The facility will host 11 theatres including three VIP auditoriums, an UltraAVX auditorium and seven traditional ones.
