Surrey theatres reopen with mix of new and old movies, $5 admission

Laser Ultra ‘experience’ introduced at Landmark Theatre in Guildford

Surrey’s two chain-operated multiplexes are set to reopen Friday (July 3) following months of COVID-caused closure.

To start, the Landmark Theatre in Guildford will screen a mix of new and old movies, including Deadpool, Back to the Future, Jaws, Batman Begins, Sonic the Hedgehog, Bloodshot and Harry Potter & the Sorcerer’s Stone, among others.

A “Welcome Back” deal offers seats at $5 per movie, in all formats, via landmarkcinemas.com.

The website details new health and safety protocols at the theatre, including reduced seating capacity, a reduced number of showtimes and increased time between screenings to reduce congestion in the lobby and auditorium.

New at Landmark is a Laser Ultra “experience” that offers enhanced sight, sound and comfort for screenings of Deadpool and Star Wars: The Force Awakens.

Cineplex Cinemas Strawberry Hill will also reopen Friday with screenings of Bloodshot, Sonic The Hedgehog, The Invisible Man, The Hunt, My Spy and the Punjabi-language titles Sufna, Ik Sandhu Hunda Si and Jora: The Second Chapter. Showtimes and others details are posted to cineplex.com. The chain is also offering a $5-a-seat deal.

The Strawberry Hill theatre in Surrey is among eight to be reopened Friday by Cineplex, along with others in Burnaby, Kelowna, Langley, Nanaimo, Richmond, Vancouver and Victoria.

In early June, the independent Hollywood 3 Cinemas chain reopened theatres in Surrey and two other B.C. cities, including the Hollywood 3 in Newton, the Caprice in South Surrey, the Caprice Duncan and the Hollywood 3 Pitt Meadows.
