The Rec Room is nestled beneath the former historical Railway Lands, in the heart of downtown Toronto. It is a Canadian based entertainment and restaurant franchise owned by Cineplex. It first opened its doors in Edmonton in the fall of 2016 and has continued to expand throughout Ontario with locations in Calgary, London and Toronto. Only mere minutes away from the CN Tower, Roger’s Centre, Metro Toronto Convention Centre, Air Canada Centre, and Billy Bishop Airport, this 40,000 square foot Canadian cityscape is taking the nation by storm! Cineplex has major plans for this modern, cutting edge indoor complex. Cineplex Entertainment CEO Jacob Ellis shares that the purpose behind the Rec Room was that it was meant to diversify the company past its core cinematic roots in the wake of the streaming industry. The company strives to open 10-15 more locations nationwide. Other locations were subsequently announced to open. The location in Toronto features The Void, a virtual reality attraction, and another is set to open in West Edmonton Mall.
The Rec Room breaks all confinements of a fun indoor playground. It is the place to let go, be yourself, and have some fun! Your adrenaline will start pumping as you will be introduced to some of the latest and greatest redemption and virtual reality video games, state-of-the-art technology and a cinematic screen to ensure that you will be listening to the best live entertainment!
