The Rec Room Opening Soon

Cineplex Entertainment is looking beyond Hollywood with a new concept that combines arcade games and live performances. The country’s biggest movie theatre chain said it plans to launch The Rec Room later this year in Edmonton, as part of a pilot project that will ramp up to a bigger expansion. Each location will have space for a restaurant and bar, as well as an array of entertainment options, like an arcade and an auditorium for live music and comedians. In addition to an arcade, the company is also considering offering other games like bowling, billiards, shuffleboard and ping pong.

Update: The Rec Room in South Edmonton Common is now open! Check it out here.
