1st Trailer
(Early July 1985-1997)

Nickname: "The Coliseum"

Logo: Fading in from black, the camera starts rotating over the walls of a coliseum, with mountains and other ruins seen as silhouettes over a evening sky. As we move around, the coliseum's seats fade to a glassy purple before a red line cuts into the seats and begins to zoom out, segueing into the next part. Here, the background has transform into a starfield and the purple glass seats become the Cineplex Odeon logo, which is a segmented "O" with 4 sections in general and split down the middle, with it also design to give the illusion of depth, which starts rotating towards the screen. After it stops spinning, the "O" becomes a metallic purple and the words "
COMING ATTRACTIONS" appear above the "O" and "CINEPLEX ODEON THEATRES" appears below it, in the Korrina font, and fades to black. It appears like this:


  • 1986-1989: The logo was reduced in size and has a bit of a blue tint.
  • 1989-1997: The logo was further reduced in size and has a deeper shade of purple. The background is also darker.
FX/SFX: The coliseum turning, the seats transforming into the logo.

  • 1985-1986: A series of trumpet fanfares over the sound of wind. It then leads to a "bang" sound effect before leading into a fanfare that sounds like the Cineplex Odeon Home Video logo at the time.
  • 1986-1997: Low synth notes play during the beginning. This leads to a different "bang" sound and goes into a soft synth piano tune.

2nd Trailer
<iframe frameborder="0" height="227" src="" width="404"></iframe>
Logo: On a starfield background, the Cineplex Odeon logo appears and slowly zooms in. It then gets bombarded with red laser before splitting into many squares, which flip forward. We zoom past some of the squares before another Cineplex Odeon logo appears, in which 3 red rings wipe around it.Then after it stops zooming, "FEATURE PRESENTATION", above the "O", and "CINEPLEX ODEON THEATRES" appears below it, cheaply inserted in and in the Korrina font. It appears like this:


Trivia: This was also used as the Cineplex Odeon Home Video presentation ident used in 1986-1990.

FX/SFX: The "O" zooming/breaking, the streaks panning to the surrounds (a combo whoosh/sound wave).

Music/Sounds: From 1985-1989, the same music from the Cineplex Odeon Home Video logo was used. From 1989-1997, a percussive roman/jungle-like fanfare, with mixed percussion and whooshes for the rings and lasers was used.

3rd Trailer

Logo: On a black background, two transparent-white objects of what appear to be extruded and outlined text appear and begin to move from the top and bottom edges of the screen towards each other. After they reach the center of the screen, they continue moving, and the front ends of the extruded text begin to move away from the screen, reducing the extrusion of the text. Once the text no longer looks 3D, the text becomes filled with white and glows. At the same time, a more contrast version of the purple-lined "O" from the previous logos appear between the text, and the outlines of the individual segments of the "O" quickly glow one at a time. The text dims down to a teal/light gray gradient color, and continues to shine for a few seconds. The top text reads "NOW PLAYING AT", while the bottom text reads "CINEPLEX ODEON THEATRESCineplex Odeon Theatres "Now Playing" (1990s?)". It is arranged like this:



FX/SFX: The moving outlines and the shining of the text, and the appearance of the "O".

Music/Sounds: A synthesized fanfare beginning with a long swoosh that ends after the text glows.

4th Trailer

Nickname: "The Curtains"

Logo: We see a theater curtain with two spotlights illuminating it. The curtain opens to reveal another curtain of another color, which opens to reveal more opening curtains of different colors. The last one of them opens to reveal a blue background with the new Cineplex Odeon logo (now gold and with 3 stripes instead of 4) along with "CINEPLEX ODEON" and "CINEMAS" below, in white and yellow colors respectively. Below there's a Loews Cineplex Entertainment byline. Two spotlights suddenly appear and reveal "COMING SOON", also yellow.

FX/SFX: The curtains, the spotlights, the revealment of "COMING SOON".

Music/Sounds: An ascending fanfare, along with whooshes. A 3-note bell tune is heard after that.

Availability: Extinct.

Editor's Note: None.

5th Trailer

: "The (Loud) Countdown"

Logo: On a animated blue background (not like the previous logo), we see a countdown from 8 to 2, with spinning outlined circles surrounding it. The countdown become faster and faster, and the circles start to form the Cineplex Odeon logo from before. The words "CINEPLEX ODEON" appear letter-by-letter by a light. They are colored white, and a laser beam turns them yellow. "CINEMAS" and the Loews Cineplex Entertainment byline fade in. A light appears below "CINEMAS" and "FEATURE PRESENTATION" wipes in at the same position of the light. Another light occurs on "FEATURE PRESENTATION", which makes the words crossfade into "ENJOY THE SHOW".

: All good CGI.

Music/Sounds: Loud gun sounds, along with short whooshes when the CINEPLEX ODEON text appears.

Availability: Extinct.
