Famous Players Belleville 8 Cinemas in Belleville, ON Premieres Its New Name

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Nov. 9, 2009) - Cineplex Entertainment (TSX:CGX.UN) is pleased to announce that our Famous Players Belleville 8 Cinemas, which has been undergoing a major transformation for the past several months is getting a new name: Galaxy Cinemas Belleville.

"Four of the eight existing sloped floor auditoriums have been converted to all-stadium seating to date and changes are still to come to the box office and concession area," said Pat Marshall, Vice President, Communications and Investor Relations. "Once completed, the theatre will feel brand new and a new theatre requires a new name so we are delighted to introduce Galaxy Cinemas Belleville to area residents and invite them to see it for themselves."

Once renovations are complete, all eight auditoriums will have been converted to all-stadium seating, where each seat row is 18" higher than the previous row, to ensure unobstructed views by every guest. In addition to a newly renovated and re-located box office, the theatre lobby will include a dynamic new digital signage program with LCD screens that will change the look and feel of the space and provide both information as well as entertainment. The number of concession options available will also be expanded offering something to satisfy everyone's taste buds with cold treats from Yogen Fruz and premium coffees from Far Coast to be added. Guests will also be able to celebrate their birthday or special event in the new party rooms being built.

"We are on track to complete all renovations by mid-December, just in time for the great line-up of movies scheduled to be released for the holiday season," said Marshall.
