    Do the VIP theatre if you can. Its worth it.

    Avoid movies in auditorium #8: it's the worst, it's almost flat!

    NO TALKING DURING THE MOVIE. Also....don't use your goddamn cell phone, even to see if someone texts you. You're not that important and can go 2 hours without looking at your phone!

    Ticket lineups too long? There is a ticket machine at the Bloor Street Diner, one level below the theatre, tucked inside the entrance.

    I love the VIP, popcorn and Licensed bar that deliver fairly decent CND wine to your seat. That's good enough movie viewing perks for me :)

    VIP is awesome and worth the VIP fee. Be sure to get there at least a half hour early to get the seat you want and waiter service.

    You pay a lot more money for a way smaller screen and marginally better seats. Not worth the extra $$.

    Try the comfortable seats and the unwelcome intimacy created by a tiny room and a tiny screen shared with 20 strangers.

    Poorly designed theater. The screening rooms have hardly any incline at all, leaving viewers at the mercy of anyone with a larger-than-normal head. Skip this one for the Cineplex on Richmond.

    VIP theatres are ridiculously small. The projector is so low that any patron going to the washroom becomes a giant shadow puppet on the screen you just paid $20 to watch a movie on.

    Avoid the VIP at all costs! VIP 1 has the worst screen I have ever seen in a theater. The screen has actual holes in it - a black grid of tiny black holes that completely ruin the image quality.

    Decent sized movie theater. Usually plays the limited releases. Theater seats are slightly grungy and some are in need of repairs.

    Saw a film in Varsity 8. The thing's flat, old, and dirty. And not in a good "this is kinda cool" way, more in a "ah, what the fuck did I just step into?!" way.

    The layout is a cut above other Cineplexes, though it does not feature Timeplay. Caters to a mostly older crowd, but can't be beat when it comes to it's great selection of limited engagements.

    The VIP experience is worth the extra few bucks. If Cineplex management are reading these tips, you may want to invest some $ in re-covering the seats (the material is wearing off on most seats).

    If you're in short and in cinema 8, choose seats closer to the back, or grab a booster seat just outside the doors!
