VIP treatment for midtown movie complex

Cineplex at Yonge and Eglinton gets a little more luxurious

What used to be the Silvercity at 2300 Yonge Street is now Cineplex Cinemas Yonge-Eglinton and VIP. It is one of only six VIP cinemas across the GTA.

The newly renovated theatre opened its doors Dec. 11, unveiling the expansion of three new VIP theatres, a licensed two-storey lounge and 256 new reclining seats.

Because the VIP theatres offer alcohol on the menu, they are for adults only. But it’s the in-seat service and the comfort that make the experience. A variety of entrees (calamari, burgers, wraps), snacks and drinks (both alcoholic and non-alcoholic) can be ordered right to your seat.

“In-seat service begins 30 minutes before the film and ends just as the trailers conclude,” communications director Sarah Van Lange said.

In case you arrive early or want to stay late, the two-storey fully licensed lounge has a variety of red and white wines and premium craft beer as well as a full menu. There are fireplaces and windows that run floor to ceiling, overlooking Yonge Street.

A promotion at Cineplex VIP cinemas lets guests enjoy two adult VIP movie tickets and a food voucher for two entrees for $50 plus tax.

“It’s the perfect date night,” Van Lange said.
