Such an overhaul happening in this industry right now. Corporate strategy is going to have to adapt and I'd suggest better deals coming down the line in 2021 (when you'll be able to use this anyway).

Personally, this change has been long overdue and I'm glad we're finally getting it. Having the choice to watch from home vs being forced into the theatre to watch new movies will be a blessing for the consumer in every regard.

Take my advice, if you want to throw $50 away, you might as well donate it to your local food bank where it will go much further than salvaging the balance sheet of a dying industry for the sake of free popcorn...

I guess I’m in the minority but I always love going to the theatre (especially these days since no one is usually there lol). The amount of classic movies being brought back to theatre right now is great too! Thanks for the deal op.

Yup. Disney+ already did Mulan and are doing more of those "pay to watch at home" movies which works out to be about the same price as 2 tickets and I believe HBO are following suit. The future of theaters is defenitly going to be quality > quantity and instead of the regular theaters we'll probably get more of the "VIP" setups where you're treated with service to your chair, comfortable seating, and less people per theater. That way the consumer can choose to watch at home on their couch or go to a comfortable "papered" experience at the theater.

I mean it's going to suck for the newer generations I think because I can't tell you how many times I went to the theaters with my friends on tuesdays as a kid, but it is what it is. Overall I think it's a net gain, I really like the VIP setups.

I just cashed in my Scene points for a Home Hardware gift card. Ultimate Dining gift card would have been better value but I don't eat at any of those restos. Cineplex was for sale before the pandemic and the buyer backed out so, yeah, not holding my breath waiting to go to a movie at Cineplex.

If this is the best they will offer then this wont end well for them. Expiry date is in 3 months, not like even they are sure if the government will allow them to open. And no movies to see. This is beyond stupid.

Just wondering why they are still open. No one is going to teathers. Won't they save more money by not having electricity/gas bills and payroll? don't they lose more money by keep operating?

I may be in the minority with Riders88 but I love going to the movies. This and playing a hockey game are the only places for me where I cannot be bothered for anything over the phone. Real mental relaxation. So I hope this industry survives. This being said, I buy these gift cards every year for the free bonuses, but with how things are going right now and the fact that they only limit this to March I'll pass this year. They should have extended the time limit...

Even march 2022 is iffy. Vaccination plans are likely to go wrong in north america. So the timeline to vaccinate the last few percentages of the population for December for Canada and USA might extend beyond that, meaning any slated movie might well be delayed even further.

Please stop saying you're in the minority and 'love going to theatres' I think we can comfortably say a LOT of people do, and it's just the current covid circumstance we are critiquing

That being said, another item we are critiquing is how these emails are always about going to the theatre and not much about stay-at-home offers like discounts for their Uber Eats offerings / digital rentals / digital purchases etc

cineplex taking a page out of the Air Canada play book......take your money and no refunds due to covid.

I love going to the movies also, and truly miss it. Wish they extended the expiry date until 2022!! After everyone goes nuts and speaks moistly to each other during xmas - the GTA is phucked! Ain't no theatres going to be open (yes everyone lives in GTA/Ont lol)

HBO Max/Crave+HBO will apparently be hosting many of the 2021 releases. Likely $30 for 48 hours or something like that.

Great deal! The times I’ve been to CGX it’s very safe and the cleanest it has been!
