The “GDX” stands for Giant Digital Experience, Bob Goodrich’s take on large formatting 4K projection with Dolby Atmos. The theater offers 3 box office lines, one self serve ticketing kiosk, and 6 concession lines. Auditoriums 1, 2, 6, and 7 have approximately 115 seats. Auditoriums 3 and 5 have about 200 seats, and auditorium 4 (The GDX one) has about 290 seats. In addition, the theater has a party room. Auditorium 4 is currently under construction to include reserved seating and a floating screen. Auditorium 4 was added in 2004 along with a party room and a second women’s room.

The Canton Cinema still continues to thrive today, despite competition from the nearby Emagine Theater east on Ford Road and the MJR Westland Grand Digital 16 a few miles further east on Wayne Road just north of Ford Road.

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

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.

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!

Wasn’t this built by General Cinema?

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.

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

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
