TORONTO – (TSX: CGX) – The wait is over for Saskatoon movie-lovers, with the opening of a brand new theatre complex this Friday at The Centre mall. Cineplex Cinemas at The Centre spans over 30,000 square feet and features luxury recliner seating. Tickets and showtimes are available today at the theatre’s box office, on the Cineplex Mobile App and at Cineplex.com.
The highly anticipated theatre offers an exciting range of movie-going experiences, including UltraAVX™, reclining D-BOX motion seats and an auditorium designed especially for families with young children. The first to open in Saskatchewan, the ‘Cineplex Clubhouse’ features colourful décor, playful seating, a curated selection of family-friendly films and an indoor play structure where kids can climb, slide and explore before the movie begins.
