Cineplex VIP Cinemas is Here!

by University District

Tickets Please!


Cineplex VIP Cinemas, a new, theatre complex is open 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




A New Experience


Cineplex is aware that the opening of their new VIP Cinemas is also significant to the community of University District and beyond.

“We recognize the new appreciation our guests have for the theatrical experience and are thrilled to welcome Calgarians to our newest VIP Cinemas location, Cineplex VIP Cinemas University District,” says Executive Director of Alberta South Operations at Cineplex, Scott Whetham.

“As we continue to introduce new and refined entertainment choices to movie-lovers across Canada, it is the perfect place for guests to escape in a luxurious setting, while enjoying the big screen and big sound that we’ve all been missing for so long.”
