Prices are good
The threater is fine and seats are comfy but the washrooms foyer are not well maintained.
Taps doesn't turn on and toilets flush poorly.
Need to definitely upgrade the washrooms and foyer

The facility may seem a bit dated (was a Cineplex many many years ago) and it may have seen some better years, but do not let that put you off a visit. This low cost admission theatre has its charm that should be treasures.

Apart from the low cost of admission, the snack bar is very reasonably priced compared to larger chains. I have never had stale popcorn or chips here like I have at other larger chains and the drinks are not watered down at all. The theatres themselves lack stadium seating and a massive sound system, but they are very clean and comfortable.

All in all, I really enjoy this facility and would encourage others looking for budget entertainment option to check it out. If you can go at off hours during the week, you may even get a movie all to yourself.

Nice hidden gem. Yup. It's a little dated and run down. But that adds to the charm. The price is right and is a great family outlet. Our family goes once or twice a month.

Thanks for keeping it alive.

I'm happy to have this budget movie theatre nearby (even the snacks are cheaper than you'd find at most other theatres). There's always a good mix of films showing - something for everything. It's rare that a week goes by where I don't drop in to watch a movie.

We would love to have more French movies; otherwise we need to go on the Quebec side. That shouldn't be the case. Our regions if francophone, so please get us good French movies

Attended with my kids and my brother and his family. $5 per ticket for everyone. Not crowded and chairs were comfortable. Nice outing for cheap and would do it again

CinéStarz Orléans is a time capsule to the past: Walk up the flight of stairs to be greeted by 1980s decor, in the form of a gaming room: Monday Night Football pinball machine, Atari console, etc. The 2nd floor snack bar doubles as the ticket office.
Black and white photos of Brigitte Bardot and Lee Marvin grace the doors of the ladies & gentleman's washrooms.
While some patrons may embrace the novelty of an old school theatre, I myself can only see the dinginess.

I decided to view the Canadian comedy, 'Bon Cop Bad Cop 2.' Note that there are no trailers included, so make sure that you're seated in time for the screening.

The screening rooms are almost box-shaped in dimensions; the patrons' chairs have high backs. Patrons do need to look up to view the widescreen, as there is only a modest tilt to the floors. (obviously this theatre was built before smartphones came into popular use)
There is plenty of seats available though: $5 (Canadian) Tuesdays (and Wednesdays) are the more popular days to come here; about twenty patrons may show up per movie screening.
Rating: Three and a half stars.

The big hits arrive here a couple of weeks after their premiere at the big outlets but this is more than compensated by the much lower price. Seniors get a discount every day. The staff are friendly and the place is well maintained.
The hidden bonus at Cinestarz are the foreign films and other non-Hollywood productions that are often available. We have come across several that we had never heard of, but which we enjoyed tremendously.
I hope they continue to draw crowds. I don't want to see this very local attraction leave.

I Love Cinestarz cause there's no big crowds no waiting in long line-ups and the snacks are cheap and the price for the movie is 5.00 $ , can't go wrong that.!! I don't know what's hype about the other big cinemas that are always full and so expensive and the snacks to. So it's Cinestarz for me .!!

Took my 3 kids to see the new ice age movie today. The price was $5 for a movie, so reasonable since the release date wasn't too old.

Prices for concessions was fair.

The theatre was so dark that my kids couldn't find the seat when they came back from the washroom.

It is a bit dated, but then you aren't paying full price for a new cinema.

Nice to have a local cost conscious place to go see a movie when you have a larger family.
