"IMAX continues to thrill our guests and drive business results," said 
Vincenzo Guzzo, Executive Vice-President, Cinemas Guzzo. "For example, since 
the March 2012 opening of our first IMAX theatre in Taschereau, the complex's 
overall gross box office has increased 20 percent in just a year. We're 
delighted to add more theatres to our circuit to meet the growing IMAX demand 
among our patrons. Also, as the IMAX film slate continues to expand with even 
more Hollywood blockbuster titles, we're pleased to add a second 
French-language IMAX screen in Terrebonne.  This will allow us to take greater 
advantage of blockbuster opening weekends in the same complex." 
"We're pleased to see existing partners expand their IMAX business – a 
testament to the truly differentiated brand and entertainment experience we 
deliver," said Mark Welton, President, IMAX Theatres. "In just over a year, 
Cinemas Guzzo has opened six IMAX theatres in high-growth areas throughout the 
greater Montreal area. They are a tremendous IMAX brand ambassador and we're 
delighted to build on their success to date." 
Cinemas Guzzo currently has six IMAX theatres open and six contracted to open. 
 The exhibitor has IMAX theatres open at the Mega-Plex(™) Pont-Viau 16, 
Mega-Plex(™) Terrebone 14, and two IMAX theatres at both the Mega-Plex(™) 
Taschereau 18 and Mega-Plex(™) Marche Central 18.  This year, the exhibitor 
will open an IMAX theatre at the Cinemas Des Sources in Dollard-Des-Ormeaux, 
and as per today's agreement, an IMAX theatre at the Mega-Plex(™) 
Deux-Montagnes 14 and a second French-language IMAX screen at the
