I don't understand what is all the excitement about the VIP cinemas in Markham??

Haven't you guys been to any other VIP Cineplex auditorium before?

It's not worth it unless you count the big (non-reclining) leather seats....the screens are not that large and the sound is good but that's it...unless you want the reserve seating.

I would rather watch with a reserved seat in a real IMAX cinema than a tiny VIP screen...sorry but that's just me...the screen and sound of IMAX (a real IMAX) makes these VIP screens look like second-rate.
I'm hoping that since the theater was built from the ground up that the screen size, picture quality, and sound quality will all be top notch. We'll see on friday :)

So exited about this new Cineplex.. Bye bye Crappy Cineplex @ FMP!!
Give it a year and it will turn crappy too... tapioca bubbles sprayed all over the walls and screens.

I haven't experienced VIP yet at Cineplex. So I'm hoping it will be awesome at the new theatre. Definitely enjoy it being only a few mins drive too :)

Doesn't look like there are full recliner seats for VIP like Don Mills location. Not worth it IMO if it doesn't have full recliner.

At the Cineplex Don Mills VIP the recliners are only in the small auditoriums; the big stadium seating auditoriums have the regular luxurious VIP lounge chairs.

Does this place have a real imax screen like Scotiabank? It's sort of disappointing that they built this and don't have a single ultraAVX auditorium...

Skipping the fact that "real" is a very controversial term in regards to IMAX screens; then yes the Cineplex Markham & VIP has an IMAX screen. The Markham IMAX has 12 rows of 27 seats; while the Sccotiabank IMAX has 11 rows of 40 seats.

BTW this weekend's hot ticket for a date - a pair of seats in the VIP for Furious 7 - are almost sold out for some screenings.



++++++++++++

On a peripheral note; the exclusive reign of the Cineplex Scotiabank Toronto theatre as the world's only venue for the IMAX laser projector is ending this week as the TCL Chinese Theatre in LA becomes the second installation of the system.

There's a double Scene Points promotion when you buy a ticket at the Cineplex Markham & VIP theatre from April 3rd - 17th.

(That's equivalent to a $5 discount on your next trip to a weekend screening at the VIP.)

It's a targeted email.

I have several accounts and only one account has that promo.

There is another promo that is for selected emails.

Watch furious 7, Jurassic world and terminator in imax and get 1000 bonus points. Or watch any two in imax to get 700 bonus points.

Nice theatre. Went yesterday on grand opening day.

Building is not done, as there is plenty of dust and two huge empty spaces on the 2nd floor where the theatre is located. They'll most likely be restaurants I'm thinking.

Parking may be an issue, as I feel like there's not enough spots, even with the underground lot.

Did you watch in their IMAX theater? Is it not as big as the other ones?

It was slightly smaller than an avx screen. Imax at hwy7/weston screen is huge, markham one is a joke. Waste of monwy, better off in a normal avx theatre. Even the seating knee gap is small.

So you recommend the Vaughan theatre? I want to pre-book my Avengers tickets. Was thinking either new Birchmount or Vaughan location.
