And the Oscar goes to...

The Maple Leafs have discovered a way to sell more tickets to their games, and it involves a trip to the movies:
Starting next week, 25 Cineplex theatres across the province will be running Leafs games on their movie screens in high definition and with full theatre sound. It’s the first time the Blue and White have been shown on the big screen, and tickets will cost about the same as a regular movie ($8.95 to $10.95).
Hat tip to The Ice Block.

James,

You are aware that the Oscar’s don’t have a category for comedy, right?

Hockey on the big screen is an interesting idea. The Galaxy in Saskatoon ran the Oilers/Sharks game October 12,and if memory serves me correctly, there were a few playoff games last spring also shown at movie theatres.

Kind of a nice option for those of us who don't get to NHL cities often enough.

Not that I'd pay to watch the Leafs, though :)

I'd think about going if they served beer. After all, hockey without beer is like, um, well, hockey without beer.

The Oilers have done this for a number of years in Edmonton, when they have games on pay-per-view TV. I know one of the more popular ones was the January 2006 game when Edmonton was in New York and they retired Mark's number. --the ceremony was almost as long as the game.

Cineplex theatres are playing three Sens games as well.

Correction. Hockey without beer is just a bunch of lame men skating around.
