"This is the highest demand for advance tickets that we've seen in our history for any opening weekend. Star Wars: The Force Awakens is already breaking records and its only October," said Pat Marshall, Vice President, Communications and Investor Relations at Cineplex Entertainment. "Star Wars: The Force Awakens is one of the most anticipated films in decades and we're so happy that Canadians are as excited to see it on the big screen as we are."
Tickets will be available at the Box Office and on Cineplex.com on Tuesday, November 3, 2015 at 3:00 PM EST. Fans who missed their chance when the first block of tickets were released alongside the film's trailer on October 19, 2015, are encouraged to reserve their tickets and join the millions of Canadians that will enjoy the film in theatres this December.
