With 50% capacity, I was hoping for mandatory empty seats in between but doesn't seem like it

In BC it looks like there's no distancing, they just stop selling tickets when they hit 50% of capacity. E.g. 132 seat theatre, considered sold out when the 66th ticket is sold

Which means you're going to have 66 people all in the middle and towards the back and empty front and sides.

Dumb question, but can I use this for a purchase through the Cineplex mobile app? Which code do I add?

I found that pretty ironic. No popcorn. No food. They say reduced capacity, but no distancing. We were surrounded by people.

I tried to redeem a code for a free ticket on January 3, but doesn't work. Anyone is able to redeem? Thinking Face

Maybe they've canceled all the freebies with Omicron running rampant and all. Can't blame them, with all the loss revenue. Free popcorn already canceled since they can't sell any food.

I believe the food restrictions are only in Ontario.
And, them losing revenue is not the customers’ problem. You can’t just reneg on your end of the bargain.

Last day for this, if anyone was still thinking about snagging.

How long did it take for everyone to get the bonus? We got the e-certificate pretty quickly but haven't seen anything regarding the bonuses. TIA

EDIT: NVM, it was in the original link when we first bought it. :facepalm:

There are food restrictions in Nova Scotia as well. No food allowed in theatre. Masks on for 100 percent of time.

Granted, we only went to the Cineplex at Pickering Town Centre because every auditorium has recliner seats at no extra charge, so maybe it's just that location's poutine that is highly addictive...
Agreed, I quite like their poutine. Not going to say it's the greatest ever but pretty good at the movies. I always get the pulled pork version in VIP.

The only thing is, about this offer, is the coupons are really not that great. A free (really discounted 'cause I never go to the gen pop theatres) movie; a free popcorn; and a "BOGO" that's not even a full BOGO, but a 50% off on second poutine and only the regular poutine? Lame.

Just gonna stick to my Cineclub membership which already has 20% off foods and don't need to buy a second one and aren't limited to just the regular poutine.

Went mid week in Toronto, yorkdale mall. Was pretty dead, about 20 people in our movie, but we did see Spiderman which had been out a while already. No food allowed in and no food being sold. Had I known it was no food, I would have same time and money and just streamed it at home, not the same without food.

So, guessing they've probably disabled the coupons and the expiry will be extended...

No, I get the same voucher is not valid error.
Cineplex representatives have no clue as well.
Frustrating.

For the folks in Ontario, it looks like movie theatres will be closed starting Jan 5th. Does anyone know if Cinepelx will extend redemption of the free vouchers beyond the current period from January 3, 2022 – June 30, 2022?

I'd bet the farm that they will.
I had some "Admit One" vouchers that I used in December, which had expired April 2021.
They scanned without problems.

They are trying to win people back, so I can't see them enforcing expiry dates, especially when the theatres were closed during the time when the vouchers were meant to be valid.
The validity of the expired vouchers mentioned above was not announced anywhere - my guess is they just program the system to allow them to keep working.
This likely results in some people tossing the vouchers (believing they are no longer valid), while allowing those who try to succeed.

I squeezed in a final movie yesterday, before the lockdown, to finally see Spiderman and was pleasantly surprised that the free movie coupon worked. So I paid $6.xx for an IMax movie. Too bad no free popcorn since the concession stands were closed.

Sorry for the necrobump, but I have a free popcorn code that I never used.
Hopefully one of you can use it before Friday. Reply or PM me if you use it.
