Famous Players opened Coliseum Scarborough on November 27, 1998, with A Bug’s Life, Home Fries, The Rugrats Movie, Enemy of the State, Ringmaster, The Waterboy, Very Bad Things, and Babe: Pig in the City. Cineplex Galaxy acquired it in 2005 and later added UltraAVX in 2011, and renamed it to Cineplex Cinemas Scarborough in 2014.

Please remove Loews CIneplex. Famous Players was the sole owner until 2005.

Not Cineplex Odeon. The independent entity was abolished in 1998 when it became part of Loews.

Cineplex Entertainment, which was then known as Cineplex Galaxy for the last few months, owned that theatre since 2005.

This theatre is on a brink of possible closure before 2026. Oxford wants this property and site to be redeveloped for the TTC’s Line 2 Bloor-Danforth extension to Scarborough Centre which replaces Line 3 Scarborough RT. Cineplex plans to construct a new cinema on the northeast corner of the property where the old Sears stood.

That seat count could go down even further (by more than half) if they put in new luxury recliners.

Updated seat count: 3,544.

Lowest seats: 227 (Aud 2/3) Highest seats: 416 (Aud 12)

Theatre #8 recently got DBOX a few months ago. However, it will also get UltraAVX as well.

From what I gathered, the theatre opened in 1998 two years before the old Cineplex Odeon 12 (opened in 1981) closed down in 2000, which is now occupied by a Gap store. Cineplex reclaimed the site through the sale of Famous Players in 2005.

Too bad they don’t keep the Colossus brand, Cineplex Cinemas Vaughan doesn’t sound very exciting.

Theatre now officially named Cineplex Cinemas Scarborough today. The remaining Coliseums in Bayshore-Ottawa and Kirkland would join in the rebranding along with the Colossus Theatres as Cineplex Cinemas.

Interesting how they are giving up the Coliseum brand. I wonder if they will give up Colossus too. In some cases changing Cineplex Odeon too.

I was involved in the rebranding stages during my co-op placement there over the course of the fall last year such as the repainting, renovations, etc…

SilverPlaqueVII on March 6, 2014 at 1:26 pm

However Mike, the signs and employees refer to it now to reflect the changes. It remains internally Coliseum Scarborough (for the time being) until the rebranding.

Still listed on the website as Coliseum Scarborough.

Coliseum Scarborough Cinemas was renamed Cineplex Cinemas Scarborough late last month as the exterior signage was installed in the last week.

SilverPlaqueVII on January 25, 2014 at 4:13 pm

Seats as of January 2014 is 3,611.

They seem to be finally streamlining their brands. I’m quite surprised they have kept the Famous Players brand after all these years, should have been Cineplex Cinemas Canada Square, Cineplex Cinemas Pickering 8 etc…looks like in the future they will only have Cineplex, Galaxy and Silvercity as their brands.

To add what Mike Rivest said, this one along with the other Coliseums and all Colossuses will be transitioning to Cineplex Cinemas Scarborough.

This cinema opened with 3,468 seats. The same cinema was built in Suburban Ottawa and Montreal. 10-screens versions were built in Calgary and Mississauga.

This opened in November 1998 by Famous Players with 12 cinemas. Taken over by Cineplex Entertainment in 2005 and one of the screens got an UltraAVX upgrade in 2011.
