I only recall being here once, but man, what a nostalgic time. I remember being here during the release of the Matrix and Message in a Bottle. Every time I pass this area, from that time to this day, I get so excited. Even this picture is entrancing. I’d like to see a movie in this theater one day, if only I know how to get here by bus.

And to add Mikey, that theatre gained a new label: Cineplex Cinemas Coquitlam and VIP.

I can’t find any pictures of this theatre’s lobby before it was renovated (I think). Was it styled the same way as other SilverCity theatres?
