Cineplex Entertainment has announced it will be donating $50,000 to the Canadian Warplane Heritage Museum, whose Avro Lancaster bomber will be featured in a documentary debuting at select theatres Nov. 11, entitled Reunion of Giants.
As depicted in the film, it has been 50 years since two Avro Lancaster bombers flew side-by-side. The Canadian Warplane Heritage Museum’s Avro Lancaster, known as VeRA, flew from Hamilton, Ont. to meet her British counterpart, Thumper – the only other surviving flightworthy Lancaster bomber in the world.
Cineplex’s $50,000 donation coincides with a special free screening of Reunion of Giants on the big-screen at 19 theatres across the country this Remembrance Day.
“Cineplex is a proud Canadian company and we know that our donation to the Canadian Warplane Heritage Museum will support the preservation of important artifacts from our country’s history,” said Pat Marshall, vice president, communications and investor relations, Cineplex Entertainment.
“Since we announced the Reunion of Giants screenings earlier in the summer, we’ve had countless inquiries about when tickets would be available. We’re pleased to debut this film to honour our veterans.”
“The kind and generous support of Cineplex, an outstanding home grown Canadian company, is invaluable to the Canadian Warplane Heritage Museum in our mission to honour the service, duty and sacrifice of our veterans who have served Canada so proudly. Thank you most sincerely for this key and vital financial assistance,” said David G. Rohrer, president and CEO, Canadian Warplane Heritage Museum and Lancaster pilot.
Reunion of Giants screenings will be on Wednesday, Nov. 11. Limited to four per person, per transaction, tickets to the events will be available in-person only at participating theatre box offices
