Canadian movie theaters rent screen time to gamers


If you live in Canada, have 11 friends, and like to play Xbox 360, then you’ve got what appears to be a dyn-o-mite formula for what I’m about to tell you. As of last Friday, Cineplex Entertainment, which owns 29 theaters across Canada, started renting out screen time for playing Xbox 360. The theaters have a library of games, too, so you don’t have to worry if you don’t own Halo 7 or whatever number sequel it’s up to now.

The theaters will rent out screen time mostly in the mornings – they have about 12 to 24 hours of downtime each week, according to CBC News. Up to 12 players can participate in each session and sessions cost $179 (Canadian) per two-hour block.
