since I dont want any hard feelings I will open this up for a vote.
Sure Pizza sounds fine.
Well, my work schedule for next Friday just shifted, so Ill be leaving a bit earlier then anticipated, so Id prefer to go up to the Grande to start scoping out the line.
I voted Paramount because in my opinion it's a better theatre. I know for the lineup the Grande is much better for our needs, but for just seeing a movie I'd personally rather go to the theatre with the better screens and audio.
voted paramount. (suprised? )
Hey Mert - how is it a 'better theatre'?
As far as I'm concerned the two are about equal - hell, they are probably playing the same equipment.
Now if you had compared say a Rainbow theatre to the Paramount, I'd understand.
ok to keep this fair for both sides, I will not include any votes that people dont claim. right now I know four of the five people who voted for pizza and two of three for sushi
Well, I remember seeing Kill Bill 2 at the Grande, and the picture was fuzzy, the audio wasn't all that great (compared to my viewing experience of Team America at the Paramount). I was just impressed by the over all presentation at the Paramount compared to the Grande. It's sort of like comparing Limeridge Mall and Centre Mall (although the Centre Mall theatre isn't there anymore) in Hamilton. Both of them used the same equipment but the overall experience was just much better at the Limeridge. I don't know, that's just my opinion. I've gone to the Grande once, and the Paramount quite a few times, and I've always enjoyed the total experience at the Paramount.
personally... I ALWAYS got the BEST experience at the Collesium in Mississauga... but... I prefer the cheaper Grande in Brampton... only 6.99 compared to 14.99... and the place is brand freaking new!!!
paramount is where exactly?
John and Richmond
folks I will be closing this thread on wednesday. so vote now and let us know in a followup post where you would like to see it.
Voted the Grande. Three reasons why
1) Over the years been treated incredibly well by Cineplex and the Grande in particular. The Paramount has not treated fans as well - I'm thinking, in particular of the night we saw Two Towers there where they tried to disband the line and then kept us waiting on our feet for literally an hour whilst other groups whose show times were later were able to go sit in their theatre.
So if I ever have a choice, my loyalty lies with Cineplex and the Grande.
2) close proximity to another mega-theatre. We don't know until Thursday night what theatre plays what. Should the Grande not have the film, you can be sure the Silver City 15 minutes down the street will. No need to scramble for a new meeting spot.
3) closer proximity to transit,cheaper parking available, and a safer neighbourhood come the wee small hours of the morning.
Folks I will remind you once again in the mind of fairness I will not count votes that the owner does not own up. no socks allowed. so the bunch of people who voted who didnt post, post now or forever hold your peace. so far I count 4 for pizza, 2 for sushi
after talking with Crazy Mike and discussing where to go on this issue, it appears there are socks at work here. it is unfair to both me and tessa to have people blantently use socks to cuase problems here so I am closing this thread now and calling it for the grande, Tessa I am sorry and the next movie is yours.
