North York’s newest movie theatre is for grownups

Looking for an adult’s night out option that doesn’t involve the little ones? Schedule a night at Don Mill’s newest movie theatre, the Cineplex Odeon VIP Cinema. In the following article we will take a look at this new theatre and what makes it so special. Greenrock’s Wingreen Court community is only a five-minute walk from both the Shops at Don Mills and the Don Mills Cineplex Odeon VIP Cinema.

 

The Experience

 

Don Mill’s latest theatre, the Cineplex Odeon VIP Cinema offers movie lovers a luxury film experience for adults over the age of 19. This new theatre from cinema giant Cineplex Odeon offers an ‘upgraded’ experience from your typical theatre. This VIP experience offers over-sized premium seats, a large lounge and bar area, in-seat food and beverage service, specialty food options, Dolby Atmos digital surround sound and no children. There are five theatres in the building, with two featuring special faux leather chairs that recline at the touch of a button. The Don Mills VIP Cineplex Theatre also features a lounge complete with a patio area that overlooks the shopping district and is great for a little bit of people watching before the show. The enhanced quality and service at the Cineplex Odeon VIP does come at a bit of a premium however, with ticket prices costing $19.50 during the majority of the week and $13.99 on Tuesdays (thanks to Cineplex Cheap Tuesdays).

 

Food and Beverage

 

Forget your typical popcorn and fountain drink because the Don Mills Cineplex VIP Cinema offers a huge food and drink menu filled with gourmet goodies. The theatre has a beer, wine and liquor license. Prices for alcoholic drinks range from $6.50 for a domestic pint of beer to $9.50 for a martini cocktail. The food menu consists of the usual snacks (even VIP’s need their popcorn), artisanal appetizers (including a charcuterie board), entrees like burgers, sandwiches and gourmet mac & cheese, and desserts. Servers take orders before the show starts and deliver drinks and food to side tray tables before the lights go down.

 

About the Shops at Don Mills

 

The VIP Cineplex Odeon Cinema is located in the heart of the Shops at Don Mills, which is an upscale outdoor shopping promenade. It is Toronto’s first ‘urban village’ that integrates both commercial and residential space for one stop shopping (and living). This outdoor complex is comprised of more than 450,000 square feet of retail space, designed and built with environmentally conscious standards in place. The Shops at Don Mills feature high-end shops, gourmet restaurants, services, green spaces and public art pieces scattered throughout the property. Before catching your movie why not do a little shopping at some of the stores in the complex that include Anthropologie, Aritzia, Murale, Browns, and McEwan.

 

Greenrock’s Wingreen Court community is only a five-minute walk to the Shops at Don Mills, making it extremely convenient to hit the shops or watch a movie at the new Cineplex VIP cinema at your leisure.
