Cineplex Entertainment's Next Met: Live in HD Performance-La Sonnambula Starring Natalie Dessay on Saturday, March 21st

Live from New York via satellite to select Cineplex Entertainment theatres across the country

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - March 17, 2009) -



WHAT: Cineplex Entertainment (TSX:CGX.UN) is pleased to announce that the
third season of The Met: Live in HD continues with a transmission
of Bellini's La Sonnambula this Saturday, March 21st at
1 PM ET/10 AM PT.

La Sonnambula marks the ninth performance of the season as part of
The Met: Live in HD series and will be transmitted live from New York
via satellite in high-definition into more than 80 Cineplex
Entertainment theatres across the country.

Mary Zimmerman, who directed Natalie Dessay in last season's hit
production of Lucia di Lammermoor, underlines La Sonnambula's dual
elements of sleep and wakefulness in an intriguing staging set in the
present. Bellini's hauntingly lyrical score soars as performed by
Dessay and Juan Diego Florez, back from their sensational run
together in La Fille du Regiment.

WHEN: Saturday, March 21st at 1 PM ET/10 AM PT.
