Canton Cinema

Viewing: Photo | Street View

Opened as Canton 6 in 1985. It had a renovation in 2004 to include stadium seating, a new screen and exterior and interior changes to better compete with the new 20 screen multiplex that is being built a few miles from the theater. The theater was then renamed Canton Cinemas.

With the Emagine Megaplex being build in the area, plans call for the Canton 6 to be expanded to become the Canton 7, from what I read in a newspaper

well how would adding a screen help at all? The megaplex I’m sure would put it out of business.

mrpibbles,
There is a new multiplex that is currently being built, I believe it will have 20 screens. Canton 6 planned to keep people in by adding the extra screen, stadium seating, and redoing the iterior and exterior.

It has happened, and it is now the Canton 7.

Wasn’t this built by General Cinema?

Well, it’s Feb 2007 and the Canton Cinemas is absolutely thriving! I do not like the Emagine Megaplex nor do dozens of others I know. Emagine is way too big, way over-priced ($50-$60 for a family of 4 to see a show with refreshments) and nothing but an obnoxious teenie-bopper hangout.

I remember the guy building the Emagine quoting in the paper “Well I just assumed the Canton 6 would go out of business after I opened” (Nice guy, huh)?

Well sorry Mr. Megaplex. People like the hometown friendliness, the great price ($3.00, 95% of the time and always $3 for students, kids and seniors) and the newspaper coupons ($1.50 for drink and popcorn). The owner and the staff are great at Canton Cinemas. The redecorating and stadium seating are awesome too.

Way to go Goodrich Canton 7! I’m there every time!

The Canton Cinema phone number is wrong in this listing the real number is 734-844-3456(FILM). If you call the 800 number you’ll get their corporate offices.

I understand the Emagine Canton has lowered their prices below the Canton 7
