“Overpriced, with very poor quality food”

Cinetopia Vancouver Mall 23
Ranked #1 of 20 Fun & Games in Vancouver
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed 12 April 2014

While this theater has all the makings of a wonderful place to hang out, grab a brew and a movie. It falls short of every expectation that you might have. Half the seats are broken in some way or another, there is always some technical problem with the servers the movies play off of, and the food... The food is good when the Executive Chef is in the kitchen, otherwise they have no qualified cooks. Of course the kitchen staff are payed sub-standard wages so someone with real talent would most likely not stay on.

You might think with all this against it the prices would be comparable, wrong again, the prices are from $8.50 for matinee in the bargain "Grand Auditoriums" to over $18 in one of the "Parlors" which are much less comfortable then the Kennedy school across the river in Portland.

I like the leg room in the living room it was great, we did have to get there 45min early to get a place and if you want to get in the parlor room to watch a show , you really have to get there early.

Fantastic venue with many theatre styles to choose from. Giant screen, new and clean, family style (sofas) too.

I wish we lived closer to Vancouver to visit this theater more often. It's so nice! The staff were really helpful. It can be overwhelming to show up and decide on 3 different theater types. But the gal at the sales window was helpful.

I really love the Cinetopia theaters and choose them over traditional theaters more often than not. This location has a great restaurant/bar with excellent service and really great food. The theaters themselves are very comfortable and luxurious. My only wish is that they had either an additional internal elevator or a faster one. The one they use now, located just outside the theater in the mall, is always crowded and sooo slow.
