Festival brings a week of Hollywood’s greatest classics and fan favourites to the big screen, often for the first time in digital format.

Cineplex Entertainment’s Front Row Centre Events has announced the lineup for its sixth annual Great Digital Film Festival, returning to select Cineplex theatres across the country from Jan. 30 to Feb. 5.

The festival brings a week of Hollywood’s greatest classics and fan favourites to the big screen, often for the first time in digital format.  Tickets are now on sale at Cineplex.com/DigitalFilmFest and participating theatre box offices.

“The success of the Great Digital Film Festival demonstrates Canadians’ deep bond with their all-time favourite movies,” said Pat Marshall, Vice President, Communications and Investor Relations, Cineplex Entertainment. “We are delighted to have beloved film critic Richard Crouse share his insights and answer festivalgoers’ burning questions about this year’s films.”
