Jacob named Showester of Year

Showest honors Cineplex CEO

Cineplex Entertainment president-CEO Ellis Jacob will receive the 2008 ShoWester of the Year nod at the annual ShoWest confab, to be held March 10-13 in Las Vegas.

Based in Toronto, Cineplex is Canada’s largest exhib thanks to the 2005 acquisition of Viacom-owned Famous Players, a deal that gave Cineplex more than half of all Canuck screens.

Jacob is also on the board of directors of the Toronto Film Festival and sits on the executive committee of the National Assn. of Theater Owners.

The parade of ShoWest announcements will continue up until the event, which takes place again this year at Bally’s and the Paris hotel-casino.
