With all kinds of streaming services now available for you to choose from to watch movies on, you might not be going to movie theatres as much as you used to. That's why one company wants to switch things up. Cineplex Junxion is coming to Canada and they've called it the "cinema of the future". With amazing theatres, a food hall and entertainment spaces all under one roof this will definitely be something special.
On November 27, Cineplex announced that it will be launching Junxion, a movie theatre, dining destination, and entertainment complex all in one place, at the end of 2020.
Junxion will be a place for people of all ages including families, teens, and millennials to get their entertainment fix from must-see movies and classic video games to amazing food.
"Junxion is where Cineplex's famous movie-going experience meets our innovative entertainment offerings. It will bring together the best of both worlds and provide guests with an unforgettable and unmatched social experience," said Ellis Jacob, president and CEO of Cineplex, in a news release.
Junxion will include cinemas, of course, because that's what Cineplex does but there will be so many more new and exciting things to do besides just watching movies.
The theatres will have a range of movie-going experiences like UltraAVX, comfortable recliners, as well as food and drinks delivered right to your seat.
There will be an open lobby for events and performances with a stage for live music, a games and attractions area, and a space for outdoor screenings.
Within the games area, people can enjoy new and classic video games along with the latest interactive experiences like virtual reality.
Because no space would be complete without a place for food, Junxion's food hall will have a range of dining options, a bar offering wine and beer, and even an indoor food truck.
This new kind of cinema is like the VIP Theatres on steroids.
"As Canada's entertainment landscape continues to evolve, we are proudly introducing this state-of-the-art community hub where families and friends can come together to play, dine, unwind and have fun," said Jacob.
The first Junxion location will be at the Erin Mills Town Centre in Mississauga, Ontario.
It will be 45,000 square feet of food and entertainment with six auditoriums, a food hall, games, and a live event space. Outdoor screenings will take place on a rooftop patio.
The brand new complex is expected to open in late 2020.
Cineplex has plans to open similar entertainment locations across Canada in the coming years, so if you don't live near this first location, you don't have to worry about not being able to experience it.
