Reviewed 8 November 2015 via mobile

The movie screens and sound are good.

Very packed at peak times

The food is a rip off. Hot dogs have made me sick twice.

The temperature is always uncomfortable in the theatres. In the summer they are frugal with the air conditioning. In the fall it was boiling when the theatre was packed... Understandable, but turn on the air circulation?!!

It's great to have a choice of 24 movies all in one location at the Kanata Centrum, close to home. Normal pricing including seniors price and special admission ticket price on Tuesdays. The concessions are overpriced quite frankly, but that's nothing new to any movie theatre nowadays. The theatres have a couple of sizes, small ones and the larger venues. For popular movies, they fill up fast, so suggest buying your tickets in advance, then you can walk right in. I frequent this movie complex on a regular basis and sometimes have found audio quality poor and lighting not dark enough, but generally speaking satisfactory. One time, attended a show and really thought it was terrible after first 20 minutes or so. Empire had a policy that you could exchange for another show which is a positive customer relations feature.

Clean movie theatre. Standard prices. Most enjoy the new self serve coke machine with all of the different flavours. Kids love the snack pack and the games.

It's a movie theatre. THey show movies. Lots of theatres - IMAX and 3D as you would expect. The concession stand is normal.

The real standout feature for me is the beverage bar. Huge volume of options and since you mix your own you can create literally infinite hybrid options.

this place was great when it was AMC now that it is Empire it has no been as enjoyable and fun. The popcorn is a lot worse some of the iconic drinks are gone and they have all the ropes up for lines.
