Cineplex has announced its opening a 45,000 square foot entertainment complex near Toronto in Brampton, ON.
Located at Highway 410 and Steeles Avenue, the entertainment complex is part of Cineplex’s relaunch of Playdium, which is currently making a big comeback across Canada.
That’s right, the beloved entertainment and arcade concept from your childhood is making a triumphant return.
Cineplex is converting and reimagining the space currently being utilized by Cineplex Odeon Orion Gate Cinemas.
The new gaming and entertainment hub will be “specially designed for teens, their friends and family who are looking for an affordable entertainment choice for everyday play, casual dining or to celebrate special occasions.”
The Brampton location will feature a mix of games and attractions in addition to a range of fun and fresh food and beverage options — similar to Cineplex’s massive Rec Room in Toronto.
Visitors can look forward to a selection of classic and new-to-market video and redemption games, as well as unique interactive experiences like virtual reality, bowling, rope courses and laser tag.
For those who still want to enjoy a movie, Cineplex plans to retain one of the existing auditoriums from Cineplex Odeon Orion Gate Cinemas at the new space.
There will also be private rooms available for birthday parties and special gatherings, as well as lounges for parents with views of the games floor.
Construction on Brampton’s new Playdium location is set to begin this September and is targeted to open in mid-2019.
