Cineplex Odeon's new Woodinville theater offers "sightline seating," stepped, stadium-like seating that gives viewers unobstructed viewing.

Eagerly anticipated for years, Woodinville now has its own movie theaters. Cineplex Odeon is opening their 12-screen downtown theater later this week. But first, they're holding a special fundraising event. This Wednesday and Thursday, movie-goers can catch twelve-cent movies while sipping twelve-cent sodas and munching twelve-cent popcorn. All proceeds from the benefit go to Teen Northshore, a youth-based community non-profit focusing on teen-related issues in Woodinville, Bothell, and Kenmore. The movies will begin showing at 12 p.m. both days and include Anastasia, The Wedding Singer, Mousehunt, Replacement Killers, Spice World, Tomorrow Never Dies, Wag The Dog, Rainmaker, Man In The Iron Mask, For Richer or Poorer and The Full Monty.
The theater officially opens this Friday with a number of first-run movies. Located at 138th Pl. NE and NE 175th. just north of the new Target store, the theater offers 2500 plush seats with "sightline seating" (stepped stadium seating architectually designed to provide unobstructed viewing), wide curved screens and a interactive technology game center. All auditoriums are handicapped accessible.
