- As a first timer using the VIP it was a bit of a search what to do. Ofcourse you can ask around but if you dont you might end up buying popcorn and a hotdog before you realize you can order from a menu in your seat; which was awesome. We’re not used to such a concept. Had a power salad (it was named something like that) and truffle fries. The food was okay. The cocktail was very good and also very large. The seats are very good. Not as good as the full-flat ones but nevertheless very good.
Would come here again for the VIP.Written December 29, 2019This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC. Tripadvisor performs checks on reviews.
- Amazing movie...like a trip to Toronto. Always like to go to this small theatre ... Not usually too crowded.Written November 19, 2019This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC. Tripadvisor performs checks on reviews.
- Fantastic little find.
An old school, single screen cinema with limited daily screenings.
The first film we saw was the recently released Elvis movie, and will be returning next week to view a 40th anniversary screening of The Texas Chainsaw Massacre - a fun way to spend the evening.Written July 28, 2022This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC.

- DOORS DIDNT OPEN UNTIL 30 MINUTES BEFORE MOVIE TIME WHICH LED TO US NOT GETTING OUR FOOD DELIVERED UNTIL AFTER THE START OF THE MOVIE. ( check in, get to seats, order ). RESULT: EATING IN THE DARK. Distracted from the movie.
Food service was good. Food was ok. I had pulled pork and my partner had a burger. With fries. Movie was good but I found pricing a bit high for the comfort experience at about $50. ( 2 people for the movie and cinema) . 2 Meals with 2 beers was about $55 so about the same as at a standard restaurant. I'm ok with that.
At total over $100 it is not something I can justify doing often.Written February 5, 2023
- The seats are very comfortable, even though they are quite worn. I appreciated the straightforward in seat service and being able to recline. The theatre needs more accessible parking however.Written August 29, 2023
- Bloor Cinema, Hot Docs, Hot Docs Ted Rogers Cinema . . . call it what you want . . . the theatre provides Torontonians with an oustanding array of documentaries throughout the year, all at a reaonable price. Sign up, become a member, get their newsletter and you wil be certain to find something you 'must' see all year long. Oustanding value.Written July 17, 2019
- A revived theatre in a great neighbourhood. Seats are very "classic" and comfy, although my seat was a little TOO comfy and leaned back to the lap of the patron behind me. The snack bar closes during the film, so get your snacks before getting your seats.Written January 17, 2020
- We come to VIP as often as we have time, and never go to normal theatres anymore. The staff here are very attentive, the reclining seats amazing, and the screens great. We sort of wish they would have some lower calorie option on the menu (the food is very good).Written March 15, 2019
- Love the movies they get, often productions not shown elsewhere. Both regular and vip, careful the time u are going for is the level u want. Theatre 8 is a huge old style theatre so sight lines not as good. friendly staff.Written January 5, 2020
- We stopped by here on a rainy day while in Vancouver and looking for something to do and found that this was such a lovely little cinema. We watched the film in a small screen but every chair was a really comfy recliner. This gave the cinema a really old school classic feel to it so was like a full experience rather than some of the generic cinemas you get now. A nice change if you want to watch a movie in comfort with less peopleWritten July 17, 2019
- Empress Walk is at the central busy intersection (transit/Yonge Street/across the street from the library) in North York. I like this theatre because I can satisfy my kids and their friends, while leisurely enjoying a visit over coffee or lunch with friends in the same building. Otherwise, I have time to grab Japanese food /Wendy’s and join in watching a show at Cineplex. Its convenience is the easily accessible location where people can meet at North York TTC station, near Loblaws supermarket of Empress Walk. Driving down Hillcrest street (behind Scotiabank) I circle a few times underground to park in the Cineplex secure lot. At the top of the rear/parkade elevator, there is a yellow validation machine inside the Cineplex for parking patrons, so I can simply exit Empress Walk without payment. It’s easy to spot the Second Cup cafe next to the sushi place at the bottom of the central theatre escalator, between the subway station level and Dollar store atop. Every place accepts credit cards. There are 4 underground lots at Empress Walk with different rates, but movie patrons can stay for 3 hours free in the Hillcrest parkade, which generally saves $12 in parking. After watching a foreign film last night, I’m going back to meet someone else for “Green Book,” there, tomorrow!Written January 18, 2019
- If you're trying to catch the latest release be sure to hit up silver city. Ticket prices for the regular cinema are $15 and more for 3D and Ultra Avx. On Tuesdays all movies are $10.Written September 12, 2015
- Attended the private screening of "Stand" in this epic locale. Reminiscent of old movie theatres of the 60's and 70's. Lots of legroon in soft chairs that are someone springy when you sit. Try the popcorn!!Written September 12, 2019
- My fav place to go... they have discounted apps before 6pm and free cake on your bday!! Good selection of food and the price is pretty good... great ambiance for a date night or fun w friendsWritten December 11, 2018
- My family and i go to this theater very often, but we buy tickets online, this time we were buying the tickets when we got there. The automatic machines were not taking my points card and there was nobody there to help. When finally someone came to the box, there was a lineup. Then they told us that concession could help some of us get tickets, but when we tried that, only one till was open and another lineup. We almost missed the beginning of our movie. i was not impressed.Written March 21, 2019
