Do some renovations or have a discounted price for this old, rundown, excuse of a theatre. Will not be back until Cineplex invest some of the money it makes from this theatre back into it, come on people, old cracked, stuffing come out of seats.
Full admission prices and 35 minutes of ads

Very disappointed, if you charge admission don’t run advertisements prior to screening. Are you really that greedy. Extra charge for butter. Maybe you could make the straws come out of a vending machine too
Big Dot in Middle of Screen
June 28, 2019
Went to see John Wick 3 with my son this afternoon. Theatre 8 if anyone's curious. Throughout the movie, there was a bright white dot in the middle of the screen the size of a golf ball. No way they couldn't have known about it, yet they were OK charging people full admission. Kind of hard to get into the movie, kind of crappy for a company to think this is passable for their customers. I told a few people in line (to see John Wick 3) on my way out, and they were thankful.
They need Reno's done . .

Charge way too much for fake butter

I was charged an extra $2.00 for topping they called butter. Then the topping leaked through the bag, staining my pants. What a shitty theater experience. Never going back.
Entitled millenials at the concession
October 11, 2018
I was at the concession stand waiting in line. Two concession workers Raine and Kyle D. stood there talking to each other not serving anyone or asking if anyone needed help. Another cashier finally did usher me to his register. I mentioned to this cashier, "what's the matter with those two workers"? Got my popcorn and went to watch my movie. I was however impressed with the ticket taker, who was a young man with a disability. He was pleasant, direct and eager to take my ticket. Nice young man.

This cinema needs a major overhaul. It is grubby and tatty. It is not kept clean. The decor is outdated and the lobby is uninspiring. Considering that it is in a more central part of Calgary this should be a flagship place of visual entertainment. The other Cineplex cinemas are much better. Also like all the cinemas here the staff checking the tickets need to be more aware of children sneeking into showings that are not suitable for their age. Many a time have we gone to see a film with adult content and there are young children watching. They are usually noisy and disruptive and some are even with their parents. Mention this to the attendant and you get a shrug back because they don’t care. Chinook is bad for this. They need to have attendants at each door to the auditorium really.
Cineplex does Not accept their gift cards!
December 22, 2017
Have received a number of xmas gift cards from some friends purchased from grocery and drug stores. Wanted to purchase Chinook Cineplex ticket package that includes popcorn (about $40.00) in freebies etc . Went to Chinook they said I had to purchase the Christmas tickets direct from them. (Two ticket agents and a supervisor). Could not use their gift cards. if you are planning to purchase a Cineplex gift card buy it direct from Cineplex if you want the Xmas Cineplex freebies Chinook Theatre is great .
