On The Day: The Story of the Spirit of Scotland Pipe Band Hits the Big Screen at Participating Theatres for Two Screenings Only

Documentary Profiles A Band Coming Together Days Before The World Pipe Band Championship

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Feb. 2, 2011) - Cineplex Entertainment (TSX:CGX), via our Front Row Centre Events and John McDonald Productions are pleased to announce On The Day: The Spirit of Scotland will be shown at participating theatres in a limited two-screening run. Tickets are now available for the screenings on Wednesday, February 9, 2011 at 7 p.m. and Sunday, February, 13, 2011 (check local listings for showtimes). John McDonald, director of On the Day: The Spirit of Scotland, will host and participate in a question and answer session with the audience following the screening on February 9th at Cineplex Odeon Gardiners Road Cinemas in Kingston, ON and February 13th at Cineplex Odeon Sheppard Cinemas in Toronto, ON.

"On The Day: The Spirit of Scotland really makes the audience feel as though they are a part of the band," said Pat Marshall, Vice President, Communications and Investor Relations, Cineplex Entertainment. "You're right there as tension builds leading up to the prestigious championships and you also get to savour each note once the competition begins."

The World Pipe Band Championship brings together more than 8,000 musicians from 16 countries (including Canada), all on one day. This year, a new group joins the battle of the bands a mere six days before the competition. Calling themselves "The Spirit of Scotland," the world's top solo players have come together for the first time to attempt the impossible: compete against legendary bands that have been around for decades. Several Canadian drummers and pipers were a part of the "The Spirit of Scotland."

Advance tickets are now available at participating theatre box offices, through the Cineplex Mobile Apps or our mobile site m.cineplex.com and online at www.cineplex.com/events. A special rate is available for groups of 20 or more. Please contact Cineplex corporate sales at 1- 800-313-4461 or via email at corporatesales@cineplex.com.
