All Seats at Cineplex Odeon Victoria Cinemas to be Replaced with Fully-Reclining, Luxury Seats
TORONTO, Oct. 18, 2016 /CNW/ - (TSX: CGX) - 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 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 – a staple in the city for nearly 70 years – 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.
