Bruce Lee Returns to the Big Screen at Participating Theatres Across Canada

Documentary examines the life and career of the action star and martial arts legend (March 01, 2012)

TORONTO, ONTARIO -- (Marketwire) -- 03/01/12 -- (TSX:CGX) - Cineplex Entertainment, via our Front Row Centre Events, and Network Entertainment, today announced a special presentation of I Am Bruce Lee. The feature length documentary will have its Canadian theatrical premiere at participating theatres across Canada on Thursday, March 8th at 7 p.m. local time (8 p.m. at Galaxy Cinemas Chatham). It can also be seen on Saturday, March 17th at 12:45 p.m. local time. I Am Bruce Lee features scenes from the best of Bruce Lee's groundbreaking martial arts action films, previously unseen home movies, interviews, photos and more.

"Bruce Lee fans will not want to miss this icon back on the big screen with this unprecedented look at his life and career," said Pat Marshall, Vice President, Communications and Investor Relations, Cineplex Entertainment. "As Bruce Lee has influenced so many of the movies that are presented in our theatres today, this documentary is a great introduction to movie fans that are unfamiliar with his work."

Among those interviewed for the documentary are UFC President Dana White, who calls Lee the "Father of Mixed Martial Arts," NBA superstar Kobe Bryant, boxing champion Manny Pacquiao, UFC stars Jon Jones and Stephan Bonnar, actors Ed O'Neill, Mickey Rourke and Gina Carano and more.
