A movie for two and parking, less than $30!!! Bring your parking receipt for lot p1 to the ticket window and they will refund your credit card $20 of the $25 cost! Watched the aircraft carrier film, enjoyable and informative, awesome photography. Will be checking out the undersea movie next. Don't forget to keep your eyes open for million dollar yachts at the dock and hot cars in the parking lot.

We went to the Cinisphere after seeing an advertisement for a movie we wanted to see, and seeing it there would be a great experience due to the size of the screen. We showed up early not sure how crowded it would be. We were sad to discover the very low turnout. The theater is renovated, new seats, new washrooms, and yet, the same great big screen as I recalled it as a kid in the 70s. In fact, the whole park was in the process of improving its ghost shell, to sadly, only a few visitors. Shadows of the past life this park had were everywhere. I couldn't help but reminisce over all the excursions I've had to the park in its glory days. Many, many fond memories. I am not sure what the future holds for the park, but it remains an integral part of Toronto's waterfront. I will continue to seek out events and other movies at the park, simply for its historical purpose. Maybe one day it can be revised to something as exciting as it was to the 70s generation, to a new one.

This is how movies were meant to be seen. The screen is absolutely gargantuan and the sound is outstanding. The popcorn is delicious, although the fountain drinks are just the standard options instead of the Freestyle self-serve type that allows you to mix flavours. This is one of the only theaters with a proper IMAX 70mm screen, and it's a treat to see anything in the format, e.g. Dunkirk. Because it's just a single screen all the way out on it's lonesome, it ends up being a fairly cozy venue that would make for a great date spot. I like this place so much that I check their website on a weekly basis to see what's showing next, and my only real complaint is that they're not showing enough!

We attended an event during Doors Open Toronto. We advance booked free tickets to see "North of Superior" and a Batman trailer. Having arrived at Ontario Place there was no signage directing us to Cinesphere which is not obvious due to construction and parts of the park still being in mothballs. We arrived at the theater, had our tickets scanned and took our seats. We watched North of Superior which is only of casual interest since it was the first film shown at Cinesphere but is now 40 years out of date. Then the screen went blank, after sitting for several minutes a rumour started to spread that the trailer had been cancelled. After tracking down an employee we were told that indeed it had been cancelled because at the last performance the level of violence had made some children cry, meanwhile we had children crying because they did not get to see the trailer. My main complaint is that they had ample opportunity to tell us this beforehand yet did not bother and after the fact no one we spoke to was in a position to do anything, the whole thing was in the hands of junior employees. If this is the level of competence and organization I can expect I will not be returning.

The original IMAX theatre. If you like what Imax does, you owe it to yourself to see one here. The outside is pretty dilapidated at this point, but don't worry, the theatre itself is well maintained and very pleasant. The film I saw recently was very loud, so be warned that may happen.
