En­ter­tain­ment com­pany Cine­plex has an­nounced plans to open an adults-only movie theatre in Cal­gary.

The Toronto-based com­pany, in part­ner­ship with West Cam­pus Devel­op­ment Trust, said it will open a stand-alone, adults-only VIP Cine­mas theatre in the city’s new Univer­sity Dis­trict Devel­op­ment.

Sched­uled to open in late 2021, the theatre will be one of only two Cine­plex the­atres in the coun­try ded­i­cated ex­clu­sively to adults, with five au­di­to­ri­ums, lux­ury re­cliner seats and a fully li­censed lounge.

Movie-go­ers will be able to choose from tra­di­tional con­ces­sion items as well as an ex­panded food and bev­er­age menu fea­tur­ing sal­ads and bowls, burg­ers, piz­zas, desserts, cock­tails, wines and craft beers.

“We are ex­cited to be part of Cal­gary’s new devel­op­ment project as we con­tinue to in­tro­duce tai­lored en­ter­tain­ment ex­pe­ri­ences in com­mu­ni­ties across the coun­try,” said El­lis Ja­cob, pres­i­dent and CEO of Cine­plex, in a re­lease.

“VIP Cine­mas is movie-go­ing made for adults and our new theatre will be the per­fect des­ti­na­tion for Cal­gar­i­ans to so­cial­ize with friends and re­lax in a lux­u­ri­ous and re­fined set­ting de­signed just for them.”

The 21,000 square foot cinema will be lo­cated at the in­ter­sec­tion of Univer­sity Av­enue and 39th Street N.W.
