Barrhaven Cineplex Reopens With Blockbusters

Barrhaven residents can once again go to a theatre to see a movie as the local Cineplex is open for business.

Cineplex opened Friday with enhanced safety and cleaning measures and a 50 per cent capacity to a maximum of 1,000 guests per building, in accordance with the details of Stage 3 of the Roadmap to Reopen Ontario as announced today by the Province.

“Our team has been waiting for this day and are thrilled that we are finally able to reopen our doors in Ontario,” said Ellis Jacob, President and CEO, Cineplex. “We can now enjoy movies the way that they’re meant to be seen, with Cineplex providing the escape of the big screen and big sound that we have all been missing for so long.”

Barrhaven Cineplex has opened with highly anticipated new releases including Black Widow, Space Jam, F9 The Fast Saga, Escape Room: Tournament of Champions and The Boss Baby: Family Business.

More information on showtimes and tickets will be available, the Cineplex app or your local theatre starting Wednesday. Guests visiting Cineplex’s theatres and entertainment venues will be able to focus on the magic of the big screen and have fun on the games floor with VenueSafeTM, a set of protocols and procedures that Cineplex follows each and every day to keep employees and guests safe, in accordance with local provincial guidelines.

Committed to its guests’ safe escape, these protocols include, reduced capacity and enhanced cleaning, safety signage throughout its facilities, reserved seating at theatres and a games-floor configuration at its entertainment venues designed specifically to ensure proper physical distancing between games. Cineplex theatres have safely welcomed millions of guests over the course of the pandemic and there have been zero resulting cases of COVID-19 in Ontario, Canada, or the world.
