Our history

Cineplex Entertainment’s history has roots dating back to 1912, when the Famous Players Film Corporation was founded by Adolph Zukor.

In 1979, Cineplex Odeon Corp was created. In 1999, Ellis Jacob and Steve Brown formed Galaxy Entertainment, a business designed to bring big-city entertainment to mid-sized markets across Canada. In 2003, Galaxy Entertainment merged with Cineplex and in 2005, Cineplex Galaxy acquired Famous Players, doubling the size of the organization to 166 theatres and renamed Cineplex Entertainment in 2006. In 2013, Cineplex Entertainment acquired 24 of the Empire Theatre chain from Atlantic Canada to become a truly national company for the first time.
