Canyon Entertainment

Canyon Entertainment is a media company mentioned in Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories and Grand Theft Auto IV.

In GTA Vice City Stories, the company produced the crime drama Angel and the Knight for VBS in 1984. In GTA IV, the company is depicted operating (or, formerly operating, as the building that houses the Superstar Cafe, which is based off of the former Paramount Theatre, closed in 1964) at Star Junction (over a Superstar Café), is listed on the BAWSAQ stock exchange, and may also be implied to operate a cineplex chain, with one "Canyon Megaplex" operating at the Big Willis Mall.

Given its reference of a geographical feature, Canyon Entertainment may be a play of the real-life Paramount Motion Pictures Group, which included Paramount Pictures and Paramount Television under its grouping, and uses the imagery of a mountain peak as its logo and shares a similar cursive font style as Canyon Entertainment's logo.
