The Canadian theatre chain Cineplex Entertainment and Toronto-based Raven Banner has teamed up to present a series of arthouse genre cinema in 25 sites across Canada.

Sinister Cinema will include unique content and in some cases special appearances, including live Q&A sessions with directors, pre-recorded interviews and other programming to be announced.

Titles in the inaugural series include John Dies At The End, No One Lives and American Mary.

“It’s a real honour for us to work with Cineplex,” said Raven Banner managing partner Michael Paszt. “Sinister Cinema will expose Canadians to a different type of horror film – one that falls outside the typical realm of larger distributors.”

“Today’s announcement is a big win for Canadian horror fans,” said Pat Marshall vp of communications and investor relations at Cineplex Entertainment. “We know fans of this genre are going to be incredibly excited about this new series.”
