The cinema closed on December 5, 2022, and the cinema was only showing one film when it closed: “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever.” I wonder why the other screens closed. Maybe the projection and sound equipment will be relocated to the new Cineplex Junxion.
This cinema re-opened as “Ciné Starz Deluxe Cavendish” on July 15, 2022. Its opening films include Jurassic World: Dominion, Top Gun: Maverick, Elvis, Paws of Fury: The Legend of Hank, Where the Crawdads Sing, Minions: The Rise of Guru, and Thor: Love and Thunder on two screens. Everything is new, from the large screens to washrooms, carpeting and flooring, high-quality speakers, and LED strips that change colours. There’s also a full bar with 15 stools in the lobby. Cinema Number 3 features the only cinema in Canada to offer DTS X Sound, creating a multi-dimensional sound that “moves around you like it would in real life.” In addition, it also features laser projection.
On June 17, 2022, this cinema added an IMAX theatre in one of the larger auditoriums. It premiered with “Lightyear” for matinees and “Jurassic World Dominion” in the afternoon and evening.
The cinema closed on the night of December 20, 2012. Its final films included Rise of the Guardians, Skyfall, Life of Pi 3D, The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2, The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey 3D, and Playing for Keeps.
The cinema’s opening movies include Cirque du Soleil: Worlds Away 3D, Jack Reacher, Life of Pi 3D, Monsters, Inc. 3D, Skyfall, The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey in RealD 3D or IMAX 3D (four screens), and This is 40.
This cinema opened on March 19, 1982, with its opening films including Raiders of the Lost Ark, Shoot the Moon, Deathtrap, and Night Crossing. From what I can tell from various listings, it did not expand in any way at all.
The cinema closed on the night of December 7, 2000. Its final movies include Unbreakable, 102 Dalmatians, Rugrats in Paris, Red Planet, and The Legend of Bagger Vance. All these movies moved over to SilverCity Newmarket the next day.

I agree that the megaplex is due for a major renovation. From what I’ve seen from photos from Google Maps, AMC Empire 25 has not replaced their seats in their non-Prime/Dolby auditoriums. The IMAX was also only a retrofit of one of their larger auditoriums, meaning it’s smaller than AMC Lincoln Square’s and it has a single laser system. I see two solutions for what AMC could do to save this theatre. One, they replace their rocker seats with recliners and update the 2000s decor like what they did to other cinemas. Two, cut their losses and close the cinema for the developer to repurpose and surrender to the better-maintained Regal E-Walk across the street. I know the latter is unlikely to happen, but does anyone else agree that this cinema is due for a major upgrade?
The twin first opened with Interlude and Petulia as its opening films. When Cineplex Odeon expanded it to five screens on Christmas Day 1991, its opening films were The Prince of Tides, For the Boys, An American Tail: Fievel Goes West, Cape Fear, and My Girl. Cineplex Odeon closed it on February 15, 2001, with its final films being Seducing Maarya, Shadow of the Vampire, Billy Elliot, Sugar and Spice, and Vertical Limit. Rainbow Cinemas then re-opened the complex with January 28 and 29, 2005, as “Free Movie Days” with Spider-Man 2, The Notebook, Team America: World Police, Shall We Dance, The Grudge, Shrek 2, and Alfie. On January 31, 2005, the cinema formally opened with The Polar Express, Alexander, The SpongeBob SquarePants Movie, Blade: Trinity, Bridget Jones: The Edge of Reason, Lemony Snicket’s A Series of Unfortunate Events, Shark Tale, and Ladder 49.
Rainbow Cinemas re-opened this theatre on September 27, 2002, opening with The Tuxedo, Sweet Home Alabama, Ballistic: Ecks vs Sever, Stealing Harvard, Barbershop, Signs, Lilo & Stitch, and Trapped.
The cinema closed on July 2, 1998, with its final films including Mulan (digital sound; moved to Coliseum), Six Days Seven Nights (digital sound; moved to Coliseum), Godzilla, Titanic, The Truman Show (digital sound; moved to Coliseum), and The Perfect Murder (digital sound).

Please change the screen count to 25. Mike already mentioned this.
This cinema’s opening film was “Master of Bankdam.” When it was twinned on December 24, 1970, its opening films were “The Private Life of Sherlock Holmes” and “The Owl and the Pussycat.” Then, when it became a triplex on December 19, 1980, its opening films were “Seems Like Old Times,” “The Jazz Singer” and “Nine to Five.” On March 7, 1997, it became a seven-screen multiplex, with its opening films including Donnie Brasco, Fools Rush in, Absolute Power, Dante’s Peak, Ridicule, Sling Blade, and Lost Highway. Even with an update to recliners, I’m not sure why Cineplex wants to keep this cinema despite competition with the nearby Capitol 6.
As mentioned by Mike, the cinema was owned by NGC Theatres, which Famous Players booked. They originally opened this cinema as a single screen, with its opening attraction being “The Out-of-Towners” in colour. NGC was sold off to Canadian Theatres of Calgary in 1973, who bought Odeon Cinemas of Canada to become Canadian Odeon. One thing led to another, and they became Cineplex Odeon. Sometime during these events, it was twinned.
Cineplex Odeon closed the duplex favouring a six-screen multiplex in another area of the mall that opened on December 9, 1988. Its opening films were “Twins” (THX), “The Land Before Time,” “Cocoon: The Return,” “Without a Clue” and “My Stepmother is an Alien.” Cineplex Odeon closed the six-screen multiplex on February 15, 2001, with its final films being “Hannibal”(THX), “Saving Silverman,” “Head Over Heels,” “The Wedding Planner,” “Snatch,” and “Traffic.”
Rainbow Cinemas re-opened this cinema on July 19, 2002, opening with “K-19 Widowmaker,” “Eight-Legged Freaks,” “Lilo & Stitch,” “Mr. Deeds,” “Men in Black II,” and “Stuart Little 2.” They later closed it on January 10, 2008, with its final films being “Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street,” “Water Horse: Legend of the Deep,” “I am Legend,” “Charlie Wilson’s War,” “Alvin & the Chipmunks,” and “National Treasure: Book of Secrets.”
Almost eleven months later, Cineplex Entertainment rebuilt the complex as SilverCity Fairview Mall with nine screens that opened on December 5, 2008. Its opening films included “Bolt,” “Four Christmases,” “Madagascar: Escape 2 Africa,” “Punisher: War Zone,” “Quantum of Solace,” “Role Models,” “The Transporter 3” and “Twilight.” As of late 2016, the cinema was renamed Cineplex Cinemas Fairview Mall.
