Famous Players Theatres (Canada)
Odeon Theatres (Canada)
Cineplex Entertaiment was launched as Famous Players in 1912 when Adolph Zukor founded the Famous Players Film Corporation, before merging with Canadian N.L. Nathanson’s company to form Famous Players-Lasky Corp. In 1941, Odeon Theatres (Canada) was founded. Prior to 1977, it used the same logo as its then-parent company, the British Odeon chain.
Canadian Odeon Theatres
In 1977, Odeon was renamed to Canadian Odeon Theatres following a merger with the Canadian Theatres chain.
In 1984, Canadian Odeon Theatres is renamed to Cineplex Odeon Corporation following a merger with Cineplex.
Loews Cineplex / Cineplex-Galaxy LP
In 1999, there were 6 yellow rings instead of 8 purple rings. At the same time, Cineplex Odeon Corporation merged with Loews forming Loews Cineplex.
After Loews Cineplex went bankrupt in 2002, Onex acquired the struggling tainted chain in 2004. The American operations were sold off in 2004 and the Canadian Cineplex was combined with Galaxy Entertainment forming Cineplex Galaxy LP.
Similar to the 1999 logo, the new logo was created after the sale of Famous Players in 2005.
The new logo is based off from the 1999 one.
