Cineplex is in a way reinventing itself and in the process malls that are being threatened by the demise of retail chains by introducing The Rec Room. This entertainment place will replace the previous anchor store Target.
By next winter there Cineplex will launch The Rec Room billed as “Canada’s newest hot-spot for eats and entertainment.”
The Rec Room at Square One Shopping Centre will occupy approximately 44,000 square feet over two floors within the shopping centre.
Cineplex has plans to open up to 15 new locations of The Rec Room in the years to come.
There will be several parts to the Rec Room which will include an “upscale” casual restaurant with wood-fired pizza, a poutinerie with elevated toppings like porchetta, smoked brisket, lobster and wild mushrooms, a bar area where sports fans can grab a drink and catch the game on huge HD screens and a “massive” attractions area where guests can play over 100 amusement games.
Other popular attractions will include virtual reality and race car simulators, bowling lanes, air hockey, pool and table tennis. And in the background, will be live bands and entertainment that will add to the excitement and air of festivity. – CINEWS
