"We are very excited to be able to support Cineplex's largest Canadian delivery launch," said Robert Payne, Vice President National Brands & Strategic Partnerships, SkipTheDishes. "Not only can customers order concession-stand treats for that in-home movie theatre experience, but Mississaugans will also have the first opportunity to order from The Rec Room, which is an exciting addition to the Skip network."
"Cineplex is at the forefront of helping Canadians play, unwind and spend time together, and we are giving guests even more ways to enjoy our fresh and tasty food offerings," said Kevin Watts, Senior Vice President, Exhibition, Cineplex. "We are proud to partner with SkipTheDishes to bring our food beyond the theatre walls so that movie-lovers can satisfy their cravings from the comfort of home."
In addition to concession items like Cineplex's famous popcorn, Skip customers can choose from a variety of convenient pre-bundled combos, including the 'Cineplex Movie Night In Combo.' The combo provides movie-lovers with a Cineplex Store HD movie rental, two medium popcorns, two medium drinks and two medium candy, making it the perfect recipe for a relaxing night in.
Plus, for the first time ever, The Rec Room's fresh and delicious food options can be delivered right to your door. Exclusive to SkipTheDishes, hungry customers can now order menu items for delivery or pickup from The Rec Room at Mississauga Square One, with more locations being added in 2020.
