Ontario Theatres Closed

Cineplex has issued a notice that the their theatres will be closed as of January 5th, 2201 in response to the new provincial guidelines on COVID. And it appears that the other chains in the province will do so shortly.

Refunds will be issued so keep an eye on your email if you have purchased tickets.

Updates For The New Year

It’s 2022 and you will be seeing some changes to this blog shortly, namely in regards to page content:

  • I will be expanding my listings with more entries and additional information on these entries.
  • I will be adding provincial and regional listings, like my previous site.
  • I will update and edit some of the older content, and may add mobile friendly content.

I had wanted to update this information for a while but got too busy because of the COVID situation.

Hope to see you back soon. Thanks for reading this blog.

Boxing Day

Although i’m tempted to go out today, i’m sure the crowds would probably be a turn off, especially now that the occupancy limits are back up. And i’m still waiting for my booster shot so i’m shopping from home today, although i’m not looking for much because I scored several deals on Black Friday.

Amazon.ca, Best Buy, Microsoft Store Canada, Newegg.ca, Shopper’s Plus and The Source started their electronics deals on Christmas Eve but they’re still adding some today. And several of them have free shipping offers so i’m keeping my butt out of the cold today. 🙂

Back to Square One

Unfortunately it appears that we’re back to the occupancy limits in most provinces, both in stores and in theatres, thanks to the Omicron variant.

Most music stores will remain open with the usual precautions, accepting proof of vaccination for access. But some movie theatres have decided to close or alter their schedules, and are offering refunds for pre-purchased tickets so keep an eye out for an email if you’ve purchased tickets recently.

Some live performances are being cancelled or rescheduled but many are simply waiting to see if the new variant will be controlled so keep an eye on your favourite band’s official site or Facebook group for details.
