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

EDMONTON, ALBERTA--(CCNMatthews - Oct. 11, 2006) - Beginning October 12, 2006, Edmonton Oilers 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 four participating theatre locations in Edmonton and two locations in Saskatchewan.

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 Steve Staios rubbing out Ottawa Senators' Daniel Alfredsson along the boards at 30 or 40 feet high across the screen or goaltender Dwayne Roloson making one of his acrobatic saves to keep Edmonton in the game? The theatre will provide a comfortable and safe venue for any Oilers fan to view their favourite team vying to bring the Stanley Cup back to Edmonton.

"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 Oilers fans love. Watching the Oilers 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.
