SilverCity Brampton Cinemas
It is one of the largest SilverCity Cinemas in the Greater Toronto area with 16 screens, but those auditoriums are certainly needed. The Brampton suburb, located west of Toronto, has one of the most diverse populations in the country. It is home to one of the largest Punjabi populations in North America, meaning the 16-screen theatre must make room for some of the finest films from Bollywood and South Asia, shown alongside the traditional Hollywood fare. Prime Minister Stephen Harper even met with Bollywood star Akshay Kumar at the SilverCity during his 2011 election campaign. The SilverCity, which opened in 1999 and had an IMAX theatre—although that only operated for a year after it opened in June 2005—was also one of the first in Canada to install UltraAVX technology in one of its auditoriums. It now has two UltraAVX Screens, as well as six 3D Screens and one DBOX Screen. Wheelchair accessibility is offered, as are Fidelio described video, Assisted Listening Devices and CaptiView Captioning. Parking is available on all sides of the theatre.
