Cineplex, one of Canada’s leading entertainment and media companies, today announced that it will be opening a new Playdium location in Brampton. Converting and reimagining the space currently being utilized by Cineplex Odeon Orion Gate Cinemas, the 45,000 square foot entertainment complex will be specially designed for teens, their friends and family who are looking for an affordable entertainment choice for everyday play, casual dining or to celebrate special occasions.
“We announced the reinvented Playdium concept and our first location in Whitby last October and we couldn’t be more excited today to share the news about our Brampton location,” said Ellis Jacob, Cineplex president and CEO. “A destination designed primarily for teens, Playdium will be a place where young adults and families can play together and also enjoy and share a freshly made meal that is fun to eat.”
Approximately two-thirds of the complex will be dedicated to games and attractions for all skill levels and the other third will offer a range of fun and fresh food and beverage options. Serving up chef-inspired burgers, pastas, pizzas, poutines and sweet delights, Playdium will feature a variety of casual food choices that will be fully customizable and hit the spot during a day or night of play. It will also have private rooms for birthday parties and special gatherings, as well as lounges for parents with views of the games floor. Playdium locations will also be designed to accommodate large groups, making it the perfect spot for parties, events and team building.
Located at Highway 410 and Steeles Ave, construction on Brampton’s new Playdium location is scheduled to begin this September and is targeted to open in mid-2019. The original Playdium opened its doors more than 20 years ago. Cineplex currently owns and operates the successful Playdium facility in Mississauga, though the new locations in Whitby and Brampton will be much more focused on indoor play, fun and fresh food and modern, technology-enhanced amenities.
