On the 1st of June, Landmark Cinemas, part of Kinepolis Group NV, has opened a brand-new recliner seating cinema at Brighton Marketplace in East Saskatoon, Canada. All seven of the theatre's auditoriums feature Landmark's new luxury recliner power seating in a full-stadium configuration. 780 motorized, fully reclining seats with extended footrest provide each guest with a significant increase in personal space and a relaxing, disruption-free movie experience.
Tickets for this cinema may be purchased through the ATOM mobile ticketing system, the first of its kind cinema mobile ticketing and concession purchase platform, an app that enables guests to skip line-ups at the box office and concession.
Bill Walker, Country CEO Landmark Cinemas Canada, said: "We look forward to welcoming Movie Lovers in East Saskatoon, and the surrounding regions, and introducing them to this new premium movie-going experience."
Kinepolis Group acquired Landmark Cinemas in December 2017 and now operates - next to its 50 European cinema complexes - 45 cinemas and 317 screens throughout Western Canada, Ontario and the Yukon Territory.
