Cineplex Is Reopening Across Ontario With $5 Movie Tickets

As the province enters Stage 3 of reopening, our list of summer activities is getting longer. This August, we’ll see restaurants, fitness centres, and other forms of entertainment reopen with restrictions, including movie theatres.

Canada’s largest movie theatre chain is one of the entertainment services that will be reopening. The company made the announcement after movie theatres were given the thumbs up to expand capacity.

Cineplex will be reopening 25 cinemas across Ontario.

Cineplex announced to open select cinemas across the province on Friday after Ontario’s chief medical officer of health gave movie theatres the green light to expand capacity.

Movie theatres are now permitted to have 50 people per screening and multiple screenings in one building at one time. Prior to this, movie theatres were only allowed to have 50 people in the building at a time, which would have meant that many theatres would operate at a loss. The change in restrictions is a huge win for theatres and moviegoers.


To welcome movie lovers back, Cineplex is offering two amazing deals.

For a limited time, you can score movie tickets for select showings and theatres for just $5 and on Tuesdays, movie tickets will run for $2.99. You can reserve your seating online, which will ensure proper physical distancing. Additionally, guests in “communities where it is mandated” will be asked to wear masks for their visit, so don’t forget to bring yours!
