The show must go on

After several delays, patrons of Sidney’s Star Cinema will have to hang on just a little bit longer to get comfortable in the new seats

After several delays and estimated dates of installation, patrons of Sidney’s Star Cinema will have to hang on just a little bit longer to get comfortable in the new seats.

As of early last week, the old seats had been removed and recycled in preparation for the new seats which arrived Wednesday. However when they were delivered, they were not what cinema owner Sandy Oliver had expected.

“They just weren’t up to the quality that I had expected them to be,” she explained.

Oliver has now sent the sub-par seats back and has ordered new seats from another company which she expects to see by the beginning of November.

“It’s hard to ask people to just hold on a little bit longer but that’s where we’re at and now we’re just trying to have fun with it,” said Oliver, explaining that the theatre will be providing seating (not movie-theatre style) thanks to the Mary Winspear Centre and will also be offering the option that their patrons bring their own chairs.

“It’s sort of like a drive in movie,” she laughed.

The theatre, which is also undergoing renovations like painting and new carpeting over the next couple of weeks thanks to Forbes Construction, will be offering discounted ticket prices of $6 until the new seats arrive.

“I am just looking forward to having it all done because once it’s complete, we’re going to have a pretty great little theatre.”

The theatre will only have 60-seat capacity for each movie, so Oliver encourages patrons to arrive early.
