The Met: Live in HD's Carmen Breaks Box Office Records at Cineplex Entertainment Theatres

Encore performance on Saturday, March 13, 2010

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Jan. 19, 2010) - Cineplex Entertainment (TSX:CGX.UN)

WHAT: Cineplex Entertainment (TSX:CGX.UN) is pleased to announce that this past weekend's transmission of Bizet's Carmen from the Metropolitan Opera, part of The Met: Live in HD at Cineplex Entertainment theatres, set the record for the most tickets sold to a live showing in the four-year-old series.
   
  Many of the more than 90 participating Cineplex Entertainment theatre locations showing the live performance of Carmen this past Saturday sold out, with all 13 theatres in Quebec completely selling out for the first time ever. Montreal native Yannick Nézet-Séguin conducted Carmen in the live performance. Due to guest demand for Carmen, additional theatres have been added to show the encore performance.
