Scotiabank Theatre Chinook

Famous Players opened the Paramount Chinook on March 23, 2001 to much fanfare. The building has been designed with an Egyptian theme in mind. Many of the wall murals include the pyramids and a giant sphinx adorns the lobby with a laser light-show every half-hour on the weekends.

There are sixteen conventional screens and one IMAX format screen. The location also contains several branded concessions such as Pizza Hut Express, Burger King, Tim Hortons and TCBY.

The Paramount Chinook is located at Chinook Centre, Calgary’s largest shopping centre.

In 2008 it was re-named Scotiabank Theatre Chinook, operated by Cineplex.

For the first few years, every 10 minutes or so there would be a flashy and loud music and light show centred on the Sphinx.

Out of all Scotiabank Theatres, this is the only one named after the mall it’s located in. There are Scotiabank Theatres in Vancouver, Edmonton, Saskatoon, Winnipeg, Toronto, Ottawa, Montreal, Halifax, St. John’s, and Chinook. I predict that sometime soon, this will be renamed Scotiabank Theatre Calgary.
