|The projected Lansdowne redevelopment|
The new Cineplex site, however, will see a significant improvement over the crumbling World Exchange, as Cineplex plans to bring state of the art Ultra AVX to the downtown core. Three of Lansdowne’s ten screens will be VIP screens, which offers films at a premium cost (a VIP movie at the Varsityin Toronto runs at a whopping twenty bucks a ticket) and lets filmgoers enjoy service in an intimate and licensed screening room whose 19+ age limit eliminates the pesky nuisance of children. I’ve only done the VIP treatment once and don’t find it an experience significant enough to merit the extra cost (the rooms have much smaller screens), but I did enjoy the bougie novelty of splitting a bottle of wine at the movies at one in the afternoon.
How do you feel about these plans, local filmgoers?
