Worst theatre anywhere
January 22, 2019
Seats are broken, missing arm rests. The pre- show has started and they haven’t even turned on the projection.

if you travel by car the parkade under the theatre is very very expensive and is offputting.

The worst thing about this theatre is that there is NO PARKING. Street parking is hard to come by and with all the construction, now even less. It's very frustrating and I choose going into Vancouver Tinseltown over this theatre.
Quality Theatre Experience
August 25, 2017
I think that enjoying movies at the theatre is a life improving experience that should continue well into the future. Their choice of movies is great and the movies usually have very decent acting. The food at the concession is great and goes well with the various types of movies that can be enjoyed at Esplanade!

Just sat through LaLa land with a commercial fan blowing hot air through out the whole movie. So uncomfortable and made me feel so sick. People complaining about the hot theatre on the way out. If we had known this heater was the cause, we would have told someone, but didn't realize until the lights came on.
Old and Freezing!

Went there last week to see Arrival. Lights would not shut off - had to find attendents. And the heating system had broken down so we froze through the whole movie. I tried to followup with the theatre directly but no one returned my call. I complained to the national website and to their credit they are refunding our tickets. This place needs a makeover urgently.
Love this place!

This cinema and Park and Tilford Cinema are wonderful! Great, local and very helpful, friendly staff. These have been our go-to theatres for twenty years - our kids and their friends saw their first films there and are now taking their girlfriends. Probably their own kids soon. Thank you!
Dying, Outdated theatre
October 12, 2016
Why is this the only theatre that doesn't show up in any of the movie apps, ie. Fandango, Flixster, etc. And you can't buy tickets online either!!! Outdated, dying theatre.. why can't we get AMC up here.
I've been going here since 1991.

I hear a lot of people complaining about the cleanliness but for the most part, it very good if you take in account the almost 26 years it's been open. Sure the seats may have been old and not completely up to par but what do you expect when your audience has slowly dwindled since the inception of the mega theatres back in the late 90s. I've always loved the atmosphere to be honest. The staff as far as I recall have been friendly over the years and professional at that (I don't include the night janitors as staff). I'm quite saddened to hear that it's finally closing it's doors in less than 2 weeks. I'm a nostalgic person in my bones, so when you watch 350 to 400 movies in a certain place, you can be sure it will trigger some emotions. I'll try to get back there a couple more times before it's quiet little exit, into sweet memories.
