Cineplex Odeon – An Outline History


Cineplex Odeon – An Outline History looks at the birth and progress of the Canadian exhibitor, and at elements of its plush theatre circuit, built primarily upon the determination of ‘one man and a multinational’. And with the aid of some previously unpublished photographs, examined here, too, is an overview of the corporation’s fledgeling Gallery circuit, Cineplex Odeon’s short-lived UK subsidiary, the dozen locations of which became surrendered initially to Cannon in 1990. Cineplex Odeon – An Outline History, strictly limited to just 3,000 copies worldwide, has been written by BFI/National Film Theatre and CTA member, Philip Turner, with the co-operation of cur-rent Cineplex Odeon personnel, former director of North American operations, Barry Silver, and ex-Cannon Cinemas Technical Director, Alan McCann.
