Toronto multiplex doubles as Ryerson class space

March 27, 2008

Ryerson University will be holding morning classes in the theatres of a local movie multiplex.  Students get in free to see movies at the theatre this weekend, and also get a $2 discount on regular-price $13 tickets next year.  Shared use of the facility was negotiated ten years ago when the university allowed AMC Canada to build the theatre above its parking garage.  Special mini-desktops have been designed that will fit into seat cupholders, and then fold away when the space is being used as a regular movie theatre.  The Toronto Star
