TORONTO — Cineplex is gearing up to launch its new entertainment-and-dining concept, The Rec Room, with the first locations slated to open next year in Edmonton and Calgary.
“The Rec Room is a social destination that brings together an incredible dining, amusement, gaming and entertainment experience all under one roof,” said Pat Marshall, VP, Communications and Investor Relations at Cineplex Entertainment. “Cineplex is leveraging its industry leading entertainment, amusement gaming, food and beverage, digital media and operational capabilities to bring an entirely new, technology-enhanced experience to the Calgary community.”
The 50,000-sq.-ft. complex includes an upscale casual restaurant with Canadian-inspired cuisine and sharable plates, while a bar area with larger-than-life screens will showcase sports. Inside, games and interactive feature attractions are offered alongside an auditorium-style space for musical acts and comedy, as well as a multi-level patio and outdoor fireplace.
Cineplex plans to roll out several more Rec Room locations across Canada.
