You'd probably be better off as a pirate :^/

The main problem is the over the top prices. I'm 99% sure it's corp that controls them, but in an area where there are so many struggling people, it's pretty much extortion. Cinema is a dying medium, stop expecting moviegoers to pay so much for a movie they could stream at home. You're better off pirating the movie, at least the fine will be less than what you'd spend at the concession stand.

The concession line is sometimes a little confusing.

I definitely agree with the comments about the need for upgrades to the theatre and its concession. I think there would be more people going out to see a movie if they didn't have to worry about the condition of their seat. If you travel to other parts of the province you will notice that seats are upgraded more frequently. I have sat in many seats at the theatre that were incredibly worn and stained. And most of us now have the option of watching movies at home through various other avenues such as android boxes. An investment in the theater would be a benefit to your company as it would bring many customers back who are seeking the crowd experience.

I’m confused about the reviews concerning cleanliness. But what really pisses me off is that we never got ‘The Disaster Artist’. Waited since September tonsee that movie and it seems like we were the only ones not to get it

Four coworkers and I just seen Beauty And The Beast this evening 7:10pm showing. We had bought our tickets online and paid the extra money for reserved seating. Knowing we had reserved seating we waiting until 6:50pm to arrive. Just to find out the projector was not working in the orginal theater. We realize this is not the employees fault..however...to be sitting in the 2nd row from the front at a 3d movie when we paid for specific seats is insane. I would assume that the employees would have know about the broken projector before 6:50pm. Maybe they possibly could have set aside two rows like the other theaters for reserved seating. We were offered a free regular popcorn (after we had bought popcorn already)...and told it was all they could do. The movie was fanatsic..but we paid for a certain service and did not get it. Instead we got stiff legs a sore neck & a free popcorn.

Most of these negative reviews are very unfair. I have been going to Cineplex Sydney/ Empire Theatres for many years. The theatres, while the smaller ones could use some upgrades, are not filthy. The chairs are not covered in stains. I'm not saying they are ultra modern, but they are acceptable as far as cleanliness goes. The prices are probably lower than some other theatres in the province. Concession prices are competitive with other theatres- all are expensive! The over the top negative comments are unfair and unjustified!
Worst Manager ever!

I was setting in a reserve seat in error. He was very rude and asked me to move. Then asked me for my receipt for the movie which I presented to him. This never happen in my life.

Everything about the theatre is great but the food line up, it is way too slow most the time
Disappointing theatre in need of major upgrades/changes.!

The only theatre in Cape Breton is a major disappointment that misses the mark on everything - dirty seats/floors/bathrooms, over-inflated concessions, unorganized, unhelpful staff and poor management. I wouldn't mind paying the very high ticket cost if everything (anything?!?) else was up to par.
Worst Theatre I've Ever Gone To

I travel to Sydney a lot and like to go to a movie on my down time. This theatre is the poorest run theatre I've been to. Filthy dirty and unhelpful staff. Regularly run out of items at concessions. Unorganized and poor poor poor management.
