State-of-the-art movie theatres, a performance stage, amusement games, and a food hall are just some of the incredible amenities you can look forward to at Cineplex’s massive new entertainment complex opening outside of Toronto next year.

Canada’s largest movie theatre chain is slated to open Junxion in late 2020, which is said to be a “new entertainment destination” that will feature everything you know and love about Cineplex theatres but on a much grander scale.

“Offering immersive and shared experiences for movie-lovers and entertainment-seekers alike, Junxion will be the complete night out for guests of all ages, including teens, millennials, their friends and families,” said Cineplex in a statement.

The first Junxion, which will be located in Erin Mills Town Centre in Mississauga, will be 45,000s sq. ft. and will feature state-of-the-art cinemas offering a range of experiences, including UltraAVX and comfortable recliners where guests can have food and drinks delivered right to their seats. 

In addition to the theatre experience, Junxion will be the spot to enjoy new and classic video and redemption games, and the latest interactive experiences like virtual reality from VRstudios

Hungry moviegoers can look forward to a range of dining experiences at Junxion’s food hall, including fresh and tasty food options, an indoor food truck, and a bar featuring wine, and craft beer.  

 And if that wasn’t enough to make you excited, the entertainment complex will also host programming and events, including live music, trivia nights, game nights, outdoor screenings of movies, live TV events, and more. 

Plus, SCENE members will earn points with every Junxion visit, which they can redeem for food, game credits, or a trip to the movies. 

“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, Cineplex.

“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.” 

Cineplex says it plans to open similar entertainment destination locations across Canada in the coming years, leveraging retrofits of its existing theatre network as well as new locations, including Kildonan Place in Winnipeg.
