TORONTO, ONTARIO--(CCNMatthews - Sept. 15, 2005) - Cineplex Odeon Cinemas (TSX:CGX.UN) - This weekend is the last chance to enjoy watching movies under the stars at the Winnipeg Odeon Drive-in. Friday and Saturday night will be the final two nights of operation for the Odeon Drive-in's 2005 season.

"We' ve been happy to hear and see so much support for the Odeon Drive-in from the people of Winnipeg," says Pat Marshall, Vice President Communications and Investor Relations." This weekend we hope to see everyone out enjoying great movies and a great summer tradition what a great way to officially end the summer."

The 40 year old Drive-in remains for sale by its owners and Cineplex Galaxy was happy to manage operations for the 2005 season. Whether or not this will be the final season that the Odeon will be operated by Cineplex Galaxy has not yet been decided. A final review of the drive-in box office will be completed later this year.

The summer season will conclude with two great summer movies, Star Wars Episode Three: Revenge of the Sith starring Hayden Christensen, Ewan McGregor, Natalie Portman and Samuel L. Jackson; and Fantastic Four starring Jessica Alba, Michael Chiklis, Chris Evans and Ioan Groffudd. Ticket prices are $7.50 for adults, $5.00 for children and seniors and a car-load price of $25.00.
