The arena district downtown is getting a new addition near Rogers Place. It was announced last week that a new theatre complex, built by Cineplex Entertainment, is expected to open some time in 2018. It will be built on the current site of the Greyhound bus depot.
The location will be on 103 Street and will be next to other newly planned buildings. While the details have not yet been released on the other buildings Glen Scott, Senior Vice President of Katz Group, said that one of the new buildings will be tall and will include large retailers.
In addition, a large apartment complex will be built in the area. More details on the other buildings will be released in the next few months.
The theatre complex will feature a lounge, two premium UltraAVX theatres, and five VIP theatres.
The UltraAVX theatre provides reserved seating and ultra HD projection on very large screens. And guests in the adult only VIP theatres will get to enjoy food and drink service.Construction is expected to begin once the Greyhound depot is demolished some time in 2016
