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.
