Cineplex opened at the Park Royal Shopping Centre April 3, 2019, taking the place of the Esplanade location in North Vancouver, which closed April 2. The neighborhood still remembers the old demolished Park Royal Theater, and has been waiting 20 years for the return of movies once again.

There are 11 screens, with the largest having 212 recliners while the others hold 50 to 100. Four auditoriums are adult only VIP cinemas with food and beverage service. Included are Dolby Atmos sound, an Ultra AVX Screen, D-Box, and RealD 3D. Cocktails, wine, and beer are served in the VIP lounge.

Cineplex Entertainment has a history of acquisitions and name changes, which trace its roots back to 1912 with the founding of Famous Players-Lasky Corp. In 1979 Cineplex Odeon was formed by Garth Drabinsky, which in 2003 merged with Galaxy Entertainment becoming Cineplex-Galaxy. Finally in 2005 the company acquired the assets of Famous Players, thus becoming Cineplex Entertainment, which today has 164 locations.
