Landmark Cinemas’ 46 Canada Locations

It’s more than just a movie when you go to a Landmark Cinema, it’s an entertainment experience. The Landmark’s multiple format screens include Premium Large Format (PLF) brands (IMAX®, Extra, Xtreme), and RealD 3D technology. Select locations offer full-recliner seating and free reserved seating.

In 1984, Landmark Cinemas purchased most of the Canadian Odeon Theatres in Alberta and British Columbia as that chain merged into Cineplex Odeon Corporation, now Cineplex Entertainment.

In late 2013, Landmark Cinemas purchased 23 theatres in Ontario and Western Canada from Empire Theatres, and later added the Kanata and Whitby locations (that were to be sold to Cineplex Entertainment), plus Ottawa’s World Exchange Plaza. The sale also included five IMAX screens in Calgary, Kitchener, Whitby, Kingston and Ottawa’s Kanata location, and three Empire Extra screens in Calgary, Waterloo, and Ottawa’s Orleans location.

Landmark is the second-largest cinema chain in Canada,
with 325 screens in 45 theaters.

Empire Theatres in Ontario and Western Canada closed on October 31, 2013, and reopened on November 1, 2013, as Landmark Cinemas.

In September 2017, Landmark was sold to the Belgian exhibitor Kinepolis for $123 million. The sale was completed on December 8, 2017.

In their role as National Sponsor of the Walk So Kids Can Talk ,Landmark Cinemas supports the Kids Help Phone. Fundraising initiatives in their theaters support the mental health of children.
