New Place To Play Coming To Barrie

Cineplex building us a 'Rec Room'

Cineplex is bringing its Rec Room dining, entertainment, amusement experience to Barrie.

“The Rec Room at Park Place will be a social playground where millennials, families and kids of all ages can come together for great food and fun times,” said Ellis Jacob, President and CEO, Cineplex. “We know that many Barrie residents have visited our location in downtown Toronto at the historic Roundhouse, so being part of this conveniently located, open-air shopping centre in the heart of Barrie makes perfect sense for us and the community.”

Rec Rooms in Toronto, Edmonton and London feature arcade games and bowling, virtual reality, dining and live entertainment with musical acts, comedy and live DJs.


The Park Place location will be the fourth in Ontario and tenth in Canada.

It is slated to open in the summer of 2020.
