From what I hear, the manager of the new cineplex is the former manager of Silver City. Whether that's a good thing or not remains to be seen.

If it's the same guy then probably not a good thing.

Just sounds to me like rumor-mongering from that site, and I'm not one to take stock in rumors.

I went to the Caprice back in 2008 to see The Spiderwick Chronicles when it played there. Okay movie, but what impressed me about the Caprice was how each auditorium is decorated on the inside, nicely done compared with the Cap 6 or the downtown Odeon's seven screens. Compared with that, I saw that photo of one of the screens at the Cineplex Westshore in the news section and it looks a bit plain and black-box-like for my taste.
