The VIP theatre will join three others in the province, along with another that has just been proposed for Park Royal. It allows movie-goers to access a fully-licensed lounge before and after the film. It also gives them many food and drink menu items that will be delivered right to their seat as they watch the movie.

“We are very excited to add our premier entertainment and dining concepts to this dynamic new centre,” said Pat Marshall, Vice President Communications and Investor Relations at Cineplex. “The combination of residential homes, shopping, dining and entertainment makes this the ideal destination for British Columbia’s first introduction to The Rec Room, and we know that everyone loves our VIP Cinemas given their tremendous popularity.”

The VIP cinema will take over the top floor of the building, while The Rec Room will occupy the floor below.
