Hockey Night in Calgary Returns to the Big Screen at Select Cineplex Entertainment Theatres

CALGARY, ABERTA--(CCNMatthews - Oct. 12, 2006) - Beginning today, Calgary Flames fans have something to cheer about as Cineplex Entertainment (TSX:CGX.UN) invites them back to watch live broadcasts of "larger than life" hockey games on wall-to-wall screens at three participating theatre locations in Calgary, one location in Lethbridge and one location in Red Deer.

Back by popular demand, the regular season games scheduled to be shown are not available on cable television, making this a unique opportunity for families and friends to see the games on giant wall-to-wall curved screens in Dolby Digital Surround Sound. Where else can fans see defenseman Dion Phaneuf rubbing out an opponent along the boards at 30 or 40 feet high across the screen or goaltender Miikka Kiprusoff making one of his acrobatic saves to keep Calgary in the game? The theatre will provide a comfortable and safe venue for any Flames fan to view their favourite team vying to bring the Stanley Cup back to Calgary.

"Cineplex Entertainment is all about bringing our guests more than just movies," says Pat Marshall, Vice President Communications and Investor Relations for Cineplex Entertainment. "Showing NHL Hockey at our theatres is a great idea that audiences and Flames fans love. Watching the Flames on our screens is the next best thing to being in the stands at the actual game."

For $10.95 a ticket or less, both the entire family and their friends can afford to spend a night out together watching the games.

"With such a tremendous fan base for the Calgary Flames, we are pleased to be able to offer even more coverage of Flames games to our fans, especially in such a unique environment," said Flames Vice-President of Marketing & Advertising, Jim Bagshaw. "This will provide the opportunity for Flames fans to see featured games versus Eastern conference teams like Montreal, Boston and Ottawa, as well as some key divisional games."
