WHAT TO SEE:
Landmark City Centre 9 is downtown Edmonton’s premiere movie theatre venue, with 9 newly-renovated auditoriums featuring state of the art sound, picture, and stadium seating.
If you want to avoid the hassle of parking charges or looking for a place to park in the busy downtown and University areas, the answer is simple: Take ETS! We’ve partnered with our friends at ETS to help spread the word that the spankin’ new LRT extension goes all the way down to Century Park, so now you can park your car any where from the farthest northeast part of the city down to the deep southwest, and hop on the LRT for a quick 15-20 minute ride to either of our main venues. Get off at University station for a short walk to the Garneau, or get off at Bay, Churchill or Central Stations, for easy access to Empire Theatres and Edmonton City Centre!
And if you’re STILL looking for something to do (BETWEEN screenings, of course), visit the City of Edmonton’s site for lots more great info on dining, shopping, sightseeing, and of course – our World Famous River Valley!
