A Little Water Won’t Stop Cupid

Sunday, February 14, 2016 @ 1:45 PM

Prince George, B.C. – If you had plans to take your sweetie out for dinner and a movie this Valentine’s Day, you’re still good to go.

There was some question about the movie part after we received word of possible flooding at the Famous Players 6 Cinemas building.  However, we’ve learned that the flooding occurred on Saturday, resulting in the closure of the theatres.

A spokesperson says they are not authorized to talk about the situation and cannot say what caused the flooding.  The manager will not be available to take questions until Monday.

The daytime movies on Saturday ran as per normal before the water started appearing in the theatres and the building was closed.  There were no shows from 6 pm on.

However the problem was rectified and its back to normal for you and your Valentine today.


Backed up sewers?

That theatre is an abomination. It needs to be gutted and updated with proper seating and movie viewing tech. But like most corporations, Cineplex will only update when confronted with competition…. but there isn’t any.

I think the movie theater is still in good shape overall. If its updates, then the movie prices will go up and be less affordable. Rather see a movie in the already comfortable seats then pay more and end up falling asleep in very posh seats.

    I think the movie theatre should have been built with smaller theatres. Even at the time it was built, that mix of sizes was a poor choice, especially for communities the size of PG.

    Movie ticket prices are virtually the same across the country. Get better selection and more people will come. Smaller spaces will allow better selection.

    If you watch the stores in shopping centres, very few will stay the same for longer than 10 years. Shopping mall management will see to that. It is part of the cost of doing business. The products will not change in price after renovations.

    The problem is, a 6 month renovation will shut down all or half of the theatre. We have no other venue. We need a new site at College Heights.

      nah, not college heights, that bubbles burst. Boundary road is where the new developments are going to go.
