Scotiabank Theatre St. John's

Replacing the Avalon Mall Cinema (1967-1999). The Studio 12 opened on December 17, 1999 with seating listed at 2,779. The smallest auditorium seats 149 and the largest 340.

One thing to note on the Studio 12 is that this was the first and only theatre in NL to feature stadium seating at the time. Other amenities are digital sound, automated box offices, and digital 3D. One auditorium was retrofitted with an IMAX digital screen in 2011.

Cineplex took over this theatre as a result of Empire’s departure in 2013. Now named Cineplex Cinemas Avalon Mall.

…and once again, it will be changed to Scotiabank Theatre Avalon Mall later in the year.

This replaced an older 1,746-seat Avalon Mall Cinema that operated from 1967 until 1999. St. John’s in Newfoundland had a grand total of 17 theaters (16 indoors and a drive-in) throughout its history.

A great, modern theatre which is the largest theatre in the largest mall (by far) in the province. I saw movies here during the end of its run as Empire Studio 12.

Also, in 2012-2013 Empire was beginning to build (and bought equipment for) a new 8-screen theatre on Hebron Way. Cineplex didn’t see the demand and canceled the project.

Opened December 17th, 1999 replacing the older cinema elsewhere in the mall (will create new entry.)
