Renaming follows recent extension of Canada's largest entertainment loyalty program
TORONTO, June 2, 2016 /CNW/ - (TSX: CGX) - Cineplex Entertainment ("Cineplex") today announced that two of its SilverCity theatres will be rebranded as Scotiabank Theatres in the coming months. SilverCity Gloucester Cinemas, located in Ottawa, will change to Scotiabank Theatre Ottawa and Winnipeg's SilverCity Polo Park Cinemas will become Scotiabank Theatre Winnipeg.
This rebranding follows Cineplex and Scotiabank's announcement in November 2015 of a 10-year extension to the SCENE loyalty program, naming rights for two additional Scotiabank theatres, VIP Cinema sponsorship and an extension of its media commitment. The program boasts over seven million members who collect points every time they go to the movies, and even faster by signing up for the SCENE debit card™ or the Scotiabank SCENE VISA™ or the reloadable SCENE Prepaid VISA card™.
Cineplex currently operates Scotiabank Theatres in Vancouver, Edmonton, Calgary, Saskatoon, Toronto, Montreal, Halifax and St. John's. Scotiabank is also presenting sponsor of Cineplex VIP Cinemas.
Guests in Ottawa can expect theatre signage to change in June 2016 and signage to the Winnipeg theatre is scheduled to be installed mid-summer. Movie listings will also be updated to reflect the change. Visit Cineplex.com for more information and show time details.
