Cineplex VIP Cinemas is Here!

by University District

Tickets Please!


Cineplex VIP Cinemas, a new, theatre complex is opening November 17 right here in University District. VIP Cinemas is an 18+ movie-going experience, exclusive to Cineplex, where guests can relax in a licensed unique and luxurious setting.

Alberta’s first standalone VIP Cinemas and only the third in Canada — following locations in Ontario and British Columbia — Cineplex VIP Cinemas University District will feature a variety of enhanced movie-going experiences.

Movie night will never be the same!



Comfort and Convenience


Designed to be a more sophisticated viewing experience, Cineplex VIP Cinemas features five, spacious 60 to 90 seat auditoriums with comfortable reclining seats and in-seat premium food and alcohol service.

All theatres offer state-of-the-art laser projectors, delivering the highest image colour spectrum, brightness and contrast.

A licensed lounge is the place to kick back before and after the movie, offering a reinvention of the dinner-and-a-movie experience. You can unwind with friends while enjoying artisanal pizza or raise a glass on date night with handcrafted cocktails.

Patrons can also order drinks and meals from an expanded menu to be delivered directly to their seats using the Cineplex app. Get the Cineplex app for your iOS or Android device at Cineplex.com | Apps
