The Cineplex Odeon Victoria is something of a city landmark. Situated downtown on Yates Street, this cinema holds the distinction of being the oldest movie house in YYJ. However, despite being 70 years old (as of 2018), this place has managed to modernize just enough...More

Tuesday special price is a good time to catch a movie and relax in the reclining seats. We came here last Tuesday to see Victoria & Abdul. I was afraid I may fall asleep being on the super relaxing seat but the movie was interesting...More

Older theatre which has been upgraded with new recliner seats. Electronic with a foot rest. Spacious and enough room to get by even with it fully extended. Very comfortable. Good staff at the counter.

The big attraction are the reclining seats. There is no other way to see a movie. The place was busy but not packed on a Friday night. Popcorn lineup was short and efficient. Major complaint is the bathrooms are in the basement and our movie...More

Went to see a new movie on a Thursday evening and the cinema was almost empty. The seat reclined well and we're comfortable. Price was fair.

Worst experience ever. We had 2 tickets to movie preview. They wouldn't let us in because of full capacity. When we asked about using our tickets for different date were told "no".

Went to watch a movie on a sweltering hot day to escape the heat. The Odeon has an old-world vibe with electric reclining seats -- and no air conditioning (or didn't have it running).

New recliner chairs can be reserved in advance, scene points for tickets. Theatre is within easy walking distance of downtown hotels and apartments. Usually first run movies, check on line for easy bookings.

Went to this movie theatre twice while in Victoria. Convenient and easy. Tuesday special of $7.50 otherwise a regular movie is 12.50. Hand vending machine with candy cups allows you to get a sweet treat without having to purchase large bag of candy.
