Is this theatre now closed? Seems to have disappeared from the newspaper movie pages and has no films showing on the Cineplex website.
Thanks Jason! Now I feel like I’ve actually been to the theatre to see a movie in all 6 auditoriums. I still think it’s a shame that someone couldn’t make this place work. Still looks too modern to be closed. And does every theatre have to have stadium seating these days. Too bad.
Like we’ve said before, once it’s gone, it’s gone. What a shame.
Shouldn’t this say 11 screens, not 10?
Too bad they don’t keep the Colossus brand, Cineplex Cinemas Vaughan doesn’t sound very exciting.
Interesting how they are giving up the Coliseum brand. I wonder if they will give up Colossus too. In some cases changing Cineplex Odeon too.
This opened December 19th, 2005 and not in 1995…5 years after Silvercity Newmarket.
I seem to remember that the Bramalea only had 3 screens, wasn’t aware that they expanded to 4. It had only 3 when I used to go there. Square One had 4.
What was the layout of the theatre Jason? Seems like a very unique design. Were all of the cinemas on one level? Did you have to use that ramp to enter the cinema level? I really wish I had the opportunity to have seen a film there and to experience the theatre like I did the Capitol 6 in Vancouver.
Interesting how the Odeon across the street is still going strong, yet no one went to the Capitol 6. Looks great to me. Wonder what the difference was? There are always enough films to go around.
What a beautiful theatre. Sometimes I wish this era of big box megaplexes never happened, we’ve lost dozens and dozens of perfectly fine theatres that would have lasted for years to come in another time. I can’t imagine why the Capitol 6 could not make a go of it with another company, say Rainbow / Magic Lantern or Landmark.
And should say 10 screens, not 6
Too bad it couldn’t have been open all these years. Too bad it couldn’t come back to life now. At least it would be 2 more screens in the downtown core and now with the Rideau Centre and World Exchange closed, might actually do well.
…as well as The Grande Sheppard Centre and The Grande Strawberry Hill
This opened with 10 screens. The opening ad says “10 huge screens”
Interesting how one country’s capital is booming with cinemas
another country has no more movie complexes in it’s downtown core. I realize that Ottawa isn’t nearly as big as Washington, but you would think a city of this size could have at least ONE cinema complex downtown. Shameful. I pity that the residents who DO live in downtown Ottawa can no longer walk to a movie because of some greedy landlords who can’t come to terms on a lease even when there is a company willing to lease the space and keep the cinemas open.
It’s also called Silvercity Fairview. Never CC Willowdale.
Won’t let me open the article :( Tried the Post web site but couldn’t find it.
Noticed on the Cineplex web site today that the VIP price is now listed at $19.99 instead of the $24.99 that was listed when it was opened.
And it’s now been re-branded as Cineplex Cinemas Queensway & VIP
I wonder why this closing disappeared from the “Closings” blog? It’s no longer there…
They seem to be finally streamlining their brands. I’m quite surprised they have kept the Famous Players brand after all these years, should have been Cineplex Cinemas Canada Square, Cineplex Cinemas Pickering 8 etc…looks like in the future they will only have Cineplex, Galaxy and Silvercity as their brands.
It’s a sad day indeed when the capital city of Canada can’t even support a modern cinema complex in it’s downtown core, even though there is a theatre chain who wants to continue showing films there. Obviously a very narrow minded, short sighted property manager does not see the benefits of having a perfectly decent 7 screen complex in an upscale location as a showcase for films downtown. Shameful.
