Varsity should be closing mid-December. Ridge is being taken over by Leonard Schein (Festival Theatres) in December, reopening with new seats for MRS. HENDERSON PRESENTS. Policy is intended to be first run when suitable product is available. Dunbar looks safe for the moment - there was some money spent there this year.
And while on Vancouver theatres: the roof of the Avon was repaired last month - necessary maintenance, not for re-opening purposes.

Let's wait and see. Maybe they meant "new to the Ridge". There were a lot of seats available when Cineplex had the closing spree in 2001.

They are indeed new seats. They've replaced all of the seats with new, plush and very comfortable, wide seats, with plenty of legroom. A huge improvement over the previous seats. They've also removed the first several rows of seats, so the new front row is still far enough back to be a comfortable viewing distance.
