Thanks Im Not Famous….just read the news and all the comments. It seems that the Chatham Six cinemas are not very well regarded by people in Chatham and many go to Windsor or London to see movies. Anyway, says the big box development was approved in April so it will be interesting to see what happens. Some people who wrote comments think that when the new 6 screen theatre opens, no one will want to go to the old out dated, uncomfortable current Cinemas 6. I wonder why if they are building a brand new cinema, they wouldn’t increase the number of screens to say 8. Oh well, at least sounds like they are getting something new.

If you go to essentials page and you will find the showtime in a P.D.F. file. Cineplex would probably replace the “traditional” Famous Players with newer Cineplex Odeons, Silvercities and Galaxies, it is odd they choose the Famous Players brand for this theatre. Recently, there is a talk of a big box development in Chatham which includes a new cinema. Here is the link to the article:

The theatre maybe serves as a temporary location for Cineplex in Chatham. The developer didn’t reveal the name of the operator.

I find it interesting that Cineplex would take over this theatre when they recently and quietly closed the Fairway Centre 7 in Kitchener because it doesn’t fit in with their current types of theatres, with stadium seating, curved screens, enhanced sound and all the bells and whistles. You would think that the Chatham 6 would also fall under the same category as Fairway Centre. And why are they still branding theatres with the Famous Players brand after all these years? You would think they would finally retire that brand and just use Cineplex Odeon for all of their “traditional” theatres.

I tried looking this up on the Cineplex website and it said the city that I had entered was not found. So is this open? or closed? It HAS gone from the Stinson website, so obviously it’s not them anymore. Stinson has lost several theatres in the last few years, namely the Imperial 8 in Barrie, the Collingwood 4 and Orillia 4 and now the Chatham 6. The only one left now other than a couple of drive-ins is the Timmins 6.
