Job Description

"Roads? Where we're going we don't need roads."

"They call it a Royale with cheese."

“Toto, I've a feeling we're not in Kansas anymore.”

We all remember these moments first introduced to us on the silver screen. Sitting amidst a hushed crowd, the smell of fresh popcorn in the air. Lights dim. A flicker of the projector signals our imminent transport to another world. Time to visit old friends or rediscover new ones. There’s no other medium that elicits a visual, auditory or emotional pull quite like the movies. They allow us to escape from the every day and experience magic. They enable us to dream.

Now imagine working in a place where you lived and breathed that feeling all day – to be part of a creative team telling stories unlike any other for some of Canada’s premiere entertainment brands including Cineplex Cinemas, The Rec Room, Playdium and more.

Cineplex is currently recruiting for the position of Copywriter. Reporting to the Senior Copywriter, you would develop original ad copy that will be seen and heard by millions of people across the country.
