SIFF announces reopening date for former Cinerama

The theater has some pretty sweet amenities, too.

SIFF Cinema Downtown Cinerama

We gotta say, that new blue SIFF sign perfectly matches that mural they’ve kept in place.

If you’ve been dreaming about chocolate covered popcorn ever since SIFF Cinema announced they had purchased Cinerama — we’ve got good news for you.

The refurbished theater — dubbed SIFF Cinema Downtown — will open to the public on December 14 with a showing of “Wonka” (the new Timothée Chalamet adaptation).

Tickets aren’t on sale yet, but we know more about all the bells and whistles that are coming. Expect:

  • The return of your favorite chocolate popcorn snack, as well as concessions from local businesses like Rachel’s Ginger Beer, Yonder Cider, and Black Raven Brewing Co.
  • An art display by the Museum of Pop Culture
  • SIFF merchandise for sale (including chocolate popcorn hats)
  • Reserved seating
  • Fancy A/V capabilities like laser projection and immersive audio systems

Stay tuned to SIFF’s official Instagram and website for more updates as opening night gets closer.
