dirty and overpriced
November 08, 2014
This theatre is very dirty, the seats are filthy, floors are sticky, concession food is way overpriced...$25 for two adults to watch a movie is way overpriced. Bring your own snacks. Needs an upgrade asap. We need some competition in Cape Breton to force change.
Overpriced & Dirty
November 06, 2014
The dirtiness, completely overpriced concession and tickets, and awful customer service are one of the reasons I made my own theatre room. Cineplex, you can kiss my money (and all of my friends' and family's money) goodbye.
Empire Theatre Giftcard
September 23, 2014
Cineplex, Sydney would not honor my $30.00 Empire giftcard even though the huge "Empire Theatre" sign still hung above the front entrance; also (I had no previous knowledge about Empire being taken over by Cineplex); I phoned the telephone number 1-877-330-7333 that was given to my husband by the Manager and was promised that they would get back to me shortly; when asked by the representative for the number of my Gift Card, I made the grave mistake of disclosing the card number; when I called 8-plus weeks later (3 times) each time leaving a courteous message, no return calls came from them; what I did find out was that they had cancelled "my" card....(soo, much for our $30.00 gift card)....soo folks, beware.
Abuse of a monopoly

This is the only theater in the city. The place is always filthy, the popcorn is rediculously overpriced, there's no refills on fountain drinks, and the movie showings are generally small. Real good customer service, concessions aside. The employees were all kind and did their job. Can't blame them for a bad job done by Cineplex.

Broadway Theatre prices for a dump. We would go every week if it was reasonably priced. We go once a year.

The theatre seats are very dirty and uncomfortable and in need of an upgrade very badly. Concession prices are sky high and no more refills on large popcorn...?!? The only theatre in CB so what choice do we have?
Filthy since Ceneplex took over.

The time I was there for a late show the theatre had not been cleaned since the earlier showing. The seats are stained and dirty. I recommend arriving for your movie during the dozen or so advertisements before the movie (that you pay to see) so that you don't have to actually see the seats. Ignorance is bliss. The concession prices have sky rocketed. They no longer offer free refills on large sized popcorn and pop which is insane considering how little overhead there is for popcorn kernels and fountain pop.
Movies never change

War Horse Fabulous!!
March 29, 2014
My husband and I attended War Horse on Saturday afternoon, March 22. I was absolutely brilliant and such a treat to feel that you had a London Theatre experience here in Sydney, NS. There were only 7 people in the theatre! Many friends I spoke with later had no idea that our local theatre offered such quality performances. Why are they not listed in the paper with the other movies of the week?? I feel the operas and ballets should also be listed or we stand to lose something very unique to this area.
