If you’ve driven by the old Orion Gate theatre recently and wondered what all the construction is about, here’s the 411.
If you’ve missed recent news, chances are you haven’t tried to go to the movies at Orion Gate because it’s now closed. Cineplex closed the theatre back in September to turn it into a Playdium.
The new entertainment venue will have classic, new-to-market video and redemption games. For those who want to be more physical, Playdium will also have virtual reality experiences, bowling, rope courses, and laser tag. Cineplex will also be keeping one of its existing auditoriums in the venue for movie screenings.
The facility will be geared primarily towards families and teens. It’s all part of a Playdium expansion across Canada. A few other cities are getting new locations too.
Construction started back in the fall and the new facility is slated to open in mid-2019.
