Ms. Melissa Pressacco reports

GET READY TO GET YOUR GAME ON: THE FIRST PLAYDIUM IN ATLANTIC CANADA OPENS TODAY IN DARTMOUTH, NOVA SCOTIA!

Dartmouth's ultimate place to play is now open! Located at Dartmouth Crossing, Atlantic Canada's first Playdium location offers 30,000 square feet of pure fun for people of all ages to play and connect.

Owned and operated by Cineplex Inc., the new Playdium location puts the health and safety of its employees and guests first by implementing extensive training as well as industry leading operational protocols throughout the venue. Following all federal, provincial and municipal health and safety guidelines, the venue will open with reduced capacity to ensure proper physical distancing protocols are in place. Additional safety measures include continual cleaning and sanitization, signage to guide the flow of foot traffic, and a games floor configured to ensure proper physical distancing between games.

Nearby Cineplex Cinemas Dartmouth Crossing, and adjacent to IKEA, two-thirds of Playdium is dedicated to gaming and attractions, including over 90 state-of-the-art amusement and video games, bowling and virtual reality. The other third is dedicated to dining, offering a range of on-the-go bites and handcrafted dishes the whole family will love. In addition to the number of people Cineplex currently employs in Nova Scotia and the Halifax area, it is initially creating over 60 jobs for the Dartmouth community. For further information and to learn more about all the health and safety measures being put in place, as well as all the fun features Playdium Dartmouth has to offer, head to the Playdium website.

In addition to the new Playdium Dartmouth opening today, Cineplex operates two other Playdium locations in Ontario, the first of which opened in 2019. Cineplex also operates eight locations of The Rec Room -- Canada's destination for food and fun for millennials, their friends and families -- in South Edmonton (Alberta), West Edmonton Mall (Alberta), Calgary (Alberta), Winnipeg (Manitoba), Toronto (Ontario), London (Ontario), Mississauga (Ontario) and St. John's (Newfoundland). Both Playdium and The Rec Room leverage Cineplex's existing industry leading entertainment, amusement gaming, food service, content creation, digital media and operational capabilities as well as its relationship with SCENE, Canada's largest entertainment rewards program.
