One of the most architecturally unique buildings in the growing city of Langley is the spaceship shaped Cineplex. There are only two others like it, one in Vaughn, Ontario and the other in Laval, Quebec.

It was named Colossus until a couple years ago, when the ownership got switched from Famous Players to Cineplex, and Colossus turned into Cineplex Langley.

It has a giant UFO on the top of it, and inside are alien-esque decorative features that are scattered around the theatre (there are even men and women alien signs for the bathrooms).

There used to be lights beamed from the top of the spaceship four nights a week from dusk up until 11PM, calling out to all celestial beings and enforcing its extraterrestrial vibe.

Opened in May 1999, it’s reputation was originally “the mother of all movie theatres” – and that still stands true to this day. It has 19 screens, IMAX, AVX, 3D, and holds an incredible 5,085 seats. It hit its one millionth guest only six months after opening, and continues to be as big as a hit ever since.

Over the years, Langley Cineplex’s appeal has grown. They now have an arcade with various types of games, and four different food outlets, including Outtakes, Yo Yo’s, Poptopia, in addtion to the classic movie theatre popcorn.

The theatre also offers wheelchair accessibility, assisted listening devices, Captiview captioning, and Fidelio described video.

If you’re craving food, there are a multitude of restaurants within walking distance of Langley Cineplex. These include White Spot, Browns, Pizza Hut, Chopped Leaf, The Old Spaghetti Factory, Boston Pizza, Montana’s, Waka Sushi, as well as Denny’s.
