Movie-going should be a fun and enjoyable experience, but cinema-goers are increasingly keen to minimize the footprint their cinematic outings may have -- which is why Galaxy Cinemas Brantford has pursued and secured LEED certification from the Canadian Green Building Council.
Galaxy Cinemas Brantford was built using reduced construction waste, and utilized regionally sourced materials in order to reduce the carbon footprint of the construction process itself.
The building has an array of environmental features including low-flow plumbing fixtures and energy-efficient lighting. It is also cleaned exclusively with green-certified products. As if that weren't enough, the theatre also broadcasts brief presentations to educate visitors about the importance of sustainable entertainment.
It is hoped that this particular theatre will inspire others to adopt green approaches, seeing as how these don't need to result in a compromise on patrons' enjoyment of films.
