At the Coliseum you will find the latest blockbuster hits. They now show a lot of 3D films and there is now preferred seating available which is helpful on those busy nights. Cheap movie nights are on Tuesday which you save $3. Parking at the back will give you easier parking. For the most part you need to use one... More

We visit this cinema on a monthly basis, the staff are friendly (concessions are slow), the seating is comfortable, and the sight-lines are great!

They just changed the seating and much more comfy. It's nearby and close to restaurants and the mall if need be. Perfect for me.

This cinema is our first choice because it's the closest to home. I like the location, easy to get too, not too far from Carlingwood Mall, Lincoln Heights and Bayshore Shopping Centre. We've been coming here for some time. This cinema has made changes to the look of it, changed carpeting, new restaurant with decent food, newer games room and... More

The cinemas are sclean and roomy, lots of games for the kids to play while they wait for the show to start and the variety of concessions are exceptional.

Huge cinema rooms, lots of parking and lots of staff, so you don't have to wait in line for hours! Bring a sweater, the AC is on high.

Movie theaters are generally the same, all that really matters are the prices, the ambiance, and the seats. I grew up close to this theater and have fond memories of my grandma telling me to sneak food into the cinema. At first I thought this was something all grandmothers did, from stealing wet-wipes to hiding digestive biscuits in large trench... More
