There, the staff of K.Ka Beauty And Health Spa performs European-style skincare procedures—including facials, massages, and body wraps—with nourishing products and innovative technology. Meanwhile, nail technicians pamper hands, feet, and the work-weary talons of pet messenger falcons with a range of artful manicure and pedicure services.
At Rainbow Cinemas & Magic Lantern Theatres, darkened auditoriums with flickering screens draw audiences into magical worlds where fish can talk, motorcycles leap canyons, and love comes even for those who eat crackers in bed. The auditoriums show recent blockbusters at 16 multiplex theatres that spread across Canada, each of which retains its own unique personality and honours any historic roots. In Edmonton, the Princess Theatre?s original 1915 auditorium, complete with balcony, golden drapes, and red walls, accommodates moviegoers with babies or pet hyenas inside a soundproof cry room. In Saskatchewan, the circa-1930 Roxy Theatre preserves the ambience of a Spanish courtyard. As guests find their auditorium at the Rainbow Cinemas Ontario locations, they can admire giant murals by local artist Fred Harrison.
Shoeless Joe’s beckons to passersby with aromas of tasty grill fare—roasted chicken, ribs, and burgers. Named for White Sox outfielder Joe Jackson, who famously made a home-run catch with a bare left foot, Shoeless Joe’s pays tribute to the world of sport, supplementing AAA sirloin steaks, thin-crust pizzas, and pasta dishes with regular broadcasts of baseball, hockey, football, and UFC fights. Guests can wash down their dinners with drafts or cocktails from the drink menu, which boasts classic concoctions as well as inventive creations tinged with ingredients such as maple syrup, blueberry puree, or bacon.
With the glow of neon, the sound of dance beats, and the scent of buttery pierogies, Extaz Lounge fuses the glamour of a nightclub with the rustic refinement of an Eastern European eatery.

At night, live DJ's urge bodies and sound-activated robots onto the dance floor, while karaoke on Wednesday and Sunday evenings grants guests their 15 minutes of fame.
