Cineplex Entertainment has announced plans to build a new movie theatre in Sarnia. The 31,000 square foot Galaxy Cinemas Sarnia will feature eight auditoriums and approximately 1,600 stadium seats. Located at Lambton Mall (Lambton Mall Road and Exmouth Street), the theatre is scheduled to open in spring 2013.
Galaxy Cinemas Sarnia will be equipped with RealD 3D technology in four auditoriums, as well as an UltraAVX™ auditorium. UltraAVX™ is a technically superior entertainment offering that provides guests a truly immersive movie-going experience. Guests attending a movie in an UltraAVX™ auditorium will be treated to a wall-to-wall screen, superb 7.1 Dolby digital surround sound, extra wide high-back rocker seats and reserved seating.
“Sarnia is one of the largest Canadian markets currently without a cutting edge theatre,” said Ellis Jacob, President and Chief Executive Officer, Cineplex Entertainment. “With Galaxy Cinemas Sarnia, we look forward to bringing Sarnia residents a new level of entertainment.”
“Cineplex Entertainment is a major tenant and important destination for Lambton Mall,” said John Morrison, President and Chief Executive Officer, Primaris Management, Inc. “We are thrilled that Canada’s largest theatre operator will bring the latest cinema technology to Lambton Mall and the Sarnia community.”
Construction on Galaxy Cinemas Sarnia will begin in summer 2012. Once complete, it will replace the current Famous Players Lambton theatre.
