Disappointed at the Calgary Theater selections. Wish they had this at Crossiron as well...

Yeah notice how they didn't select Scarborough location but went further East to the crappy 1980's Ajax venue. I'll stay home and watch it on my 115 inch screen 4K projector. Beer and concessions a lot cheaper too! lol

Much too expensive - get your 97 cent chips at no frills or walmart!

I think this is actually a very good win-win for fan in these remote area, don't think they are trying to make money with concession, I rather think this is a smart marketing induced move that benefit both fan, resident, property owner and team;
todays movie is not about content of movie, it's about experiences of in theater. so this is another way to attract new breed of customers, a new slice of pie in market/brand new type of customer to theater enjoy same ideology, same fan support base and get to know other fan, and boost fan loyalty,
brick and mortar mall/store in small town are dying faster and this will attract people come to theater to taste the experiences, hopefully bring new life to the mall.
there is only 1 team in Canada, now it's how they get residents of other city to become fan, basically making "Toronto Raptors" to "Canada's Raptors"; that's why, the list of location does not include "GTA" ; so I bet MLSE is paying or renting the theater for this.
Don't think they care much concession on this. it's still much cheaper then going to the PARK, and more than than watching this at home (with bunch of usual suspect, same old, think about chance to meet friends, for new dates etc). this is the so call "experiences" that theater trying to sell and they need this to survive. sure people can have 70" or 100" tv at home, but it can't have the same effect of theater and sport event is much more effective in this aspect. so it's WIN WIN WIN for customer, fan, local business!

I would assume Canadian. This will be one of the rare occasions where lots of noise from the audience is encouraged in the theatre.

Possibly a dumb question but how does a movie theatre show a live TV broadcast? Do they just hook up the projector to a cable box?

^ Don't know exactly how, but they definitely can show live TV broadcasts. In the past I've watched both Super Bowl and Raptors sporting events live and HBO's "Game of Thrones" during live broadcasts.
