Toronto Rec Room

Cineplex opening huge entertainment complex in Toronto

Cineplex may be synonymous with going to the movies, but the Canadian company is branching out, bringing its latest venture to Toronto in the form of an entertainment complex that'll focus on arcade games and live entertainment.

The Rec Room is moving into the Leon's Furniture store at 255 Bremner Blvd in Roundhouse Park, which is across from the Rogers Centre and Ripley's Aquarium.

This 40,000 square-foot space will feature multiple dining options - including an upscale casual restaurant - a bar featuring multiple high-def screens, games, shuffleboard courts, pool tables, ping pong tables and an entertainment venue.

It all sounds sort of like a souped-up Playdium or Dave and Buster's, meaning it'll likely cater to families and tourists looking for something to do downtown on a cold or rainy day.

Cineplex already has plans to open Rec Rooms in Edmonton and Calgary. The Toronto location should be up and running by early 2017.
