Cineplex Inc. is laying off “a number of” full-time workers.

The Toronto-based company’s spokesperson Sarah Van Lange is refusing to say exactly how many jobs are being cut, but says the layoffs will impact less than 100 employees.

Lange says the cuts are part of a “small restructuring” happening at the entertainment giant.

She says the changes were prompted by a need to eliminate duplicate roles following several business acquisitions and a plan to roll out a diversification strategy.

The layoffs come as the company aims to reduce its expenses by about $25 million annually.

@dyalect: Hey they already have pop machines and ice cream dispensing machines. Next thing is to borrow a page from Japan and set up rows of vending machines that sells everything you could have gotten at the counter from cold to hot. It’s all going to be automated even the ticket takers will end up as a gated wall and you scan your pass to enter. They’ll probably just have security guards roaming to make sure there’s no “funny business” going on and IT in some central building monitoring the equipment.
