A new kind of theater experience is coming to Calgary.

Construction for Cineplex’s East Hills cinemas is already underway with completion expected for early 2018.

The new space will span over 30,000 square feet and will have seven screens featuring a variety of movie-going experiences including UltraAVX™, D-BOX Motion Seats and for the first time in Canada, an auditorium designed specifically for families with young children.

“At Cineplex we are always looking for new entertainment experiences to provide our guests, whatever their age, and Cineplex Cinemas East Hills is a perfect example of that,” said Ellis Jacob, President and CEO, Cineplex.  “We’re particularly excited to test and learn from our first auditorium designed specifically for children, which will feature a colourful interior, playful seating and a curated line-up of films perfect for young movie-lovers.”

Cineplex Cinemas East Hills will also feature UltraAVX, and D-BOX Deluxe Reclining Cinema Seats, which move in concert with the action on the big screen and use some of the most innovative technologies in cinema today.  With the exception of the children’s auditorium which will include a variety of playful seating options, all of the theaters auditoriums will have luxurious seats that recline at the touch of a button.

The new theatre will also have a 2,500 square foot XSCAPE Entertainment Centres equipped with the latest video and amusement gaming technology.
