To the January 2012 poster below: did you notify theatre management of your suspicions?
They can't investigate and treat a problem that they don't know exists, so I hope you reported your experience to someone at the Scotiabank.
Awareness is important, so make sure they're aware.

Went to see the 6:10 showing of "Scott Pilgrim" on Tuesday, Aug 24th. Woke up in itchy terror at about 3 or 4am later that night. From previous experience in NYC knew what it was pretty much immediately. Bug bites were only back of upper thigh, bottom, lower back in classic "breakfast lunch dinner" pattern (mostly pattern of twos and threes). Took about another day and a half to realize it must have been the cinema; thought it might have been from a friend's initially but they had no signs of be
Left message somewhere in the labyrinth of customer care for Cineplex. Told a film critic friend coming into town for TIFF next week. TIFF and Cineplex at high alert: appear to be on it.
Curious about any other visits to this theatre & reports of bedbugs!
