    "Everyone in Spruce Grove and Parkland County is very excited," said Tom
Hutchinson, President of Magic Lantern Theatres. "They have been eagerly
awaiting the opening of this modernistic entertainment complex to enjoy all
the latest movies under one roof. Although the Parkland Cinema 7 is large and
luxurious, our customers will experience the same friendly and personalized
service that has become the trademark of Magic Lantern Theatres since 1980. We
have already received many requests for the booking of the cinema's two
birthday party rooms at Parkland Cinema 7, where children can celebrate their
birthday parties, 'Hollywood style', with their family and friends."
    The single-screen cinema currently operating in Spruce Grove first opened
in 1977 as Teravista. When ownership changed hands, it was renamed Parkland
Cinema, and later called Magic Lantern Theatre. This cinema location, which
has been entertaining movie fans of Spruce Grove, Stony Creek and other
Parkland area communities, for 30 years, will close on November 21.

    The new Parkland Cinema 7 is owned and operated by Magic Lantern
Theatres, a community-based Canadian Exhibition Company, established in 1980.
With the opening of this new multiplex, the company has expanded its
operations to 17 cinema locations across Canada with a total of 77 screens.
