Landmark Kitchener

Opened as a SilverCity theatre on December 11, 1998 by Famous Players. Taken over by Cineplex in 2005 and sold to Empire Theatres in September 2005 in order to satisfy competition guidelines after the Cineplex/Famous Players merger.

In 2010, Empire made extensive renovations to the interior and exterior of the complex, completely changing the look and architectural style of the building, and replaced all the seating with rocker-style seats.

Mike Rivest’s guide lists the seating capacity as 2,728 seats, with the largest auditorium seating 346 and the smallest seating 156. However, an IMAX retrofitted screen was added in 2011, and the current seating capacity of that auditorium is now unknown. The Landmark Kitchener was closed on October 5, 2023.

Closing October 5th, 2023

“ in what appears to be another casualty of the pandemic-fuelled shift away from movie theatres to at-home streaming services, Landmark Cinemas has announced it will close the doors on its Gateway Park Drive location in Kitchener by the end of the week.

The last showing will be Thursday, Oct. 5, according to a post on the theatre’s website.

“ATTENTION MOVIE LOVERS: Please be advised we are closing our Kitchener theatre. The last play date is Thursday, October 5th. Thank you for your support of this theatre.”

The theatre chain asks customers to consider heading to its Waterloo location where recent renovations added “luxury recliner seating, its market exclusive Premiere Seats,” and Laser Ultra, Landmark’s proprietary Premium Large Format (PLF) movie-going experience."

Landmark’s Kitchener location is the only local theatre to offer IMAX, a high-resolution film and large screen projection format that was developed in and around the Cambridge area in the late 1960s by a group of local inventors and businessmen, including the man who would become the city’s second mayor, Robert Kerr.“
