Get ready Toronto, this holiday season The Second City is taking family entertainment to a mind-blowing new level! Two hilarious teams of top-notch improvisers will face off in a winner takes all comedy showdown – and they’re going to need your help.

Fueled by weird suggestions and energized by audience volunteers, our teams will work hard to earn your votes in a desperate attempt to become the heavyweight comedy champions of the world! At least until the next show… Specially designed for kids (and the old people in charge of them), this show has it all. High-energy characters? Check! All the Fortnite dances you can handle? Check! A scene with a puppy, an alien and a thousand pound watermelon? Who knows! It’s an Improv Showdown – anything can happen (and probably will)! For those enjoying the show, snacks and drinks will be available for purchase at the Cinema’s concession stand.

In addition to hosting The Second City’s Improv Showdown, throughout the month of December we’ll be playing everyone’s favourite holiday movies, like A Christmas StoryElf and Home Alone, in the screening room. We’ll also be celebrating the festive season with a gingerbread Christmas village and a glistening Christmas tree in our Lobby and festive offerings on the menu in our bars and restaurants.

For little ones, our 3,000 square foot play centre will provide a variety of fun and festive hands-on activities, from arts and crafts to games, plus a sports court, toys and books, four video game consoles and a big screen TV for movie time.
