IMAX and Regal Cinemas Sign Deal for 31 IMAX Installations in 20 Markets

Posted on Monday, March 24th, 2008 12:58 PM by Scott Jentsch

IMAX Corporation continues its expansion with a deal announced today with Regal Cinemas. According to their press release, the two companies have entered into a joint venture that will install 31 IMAX digital projection systems into Regal locations in 20 markets. The first group of installations is expected to be completed in time for the release of Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince: The IMAX Experience on November 21, 2008.

These new installations will be the new digital system designed for the IMAX MPX® design, which is a smaller-scale system that more easily fits into traditional movie theater designs. The release mentions that this partnership will bring Regal's total number of IMAX theaters to 52 by the end of 2010.

The list of upcoming IMAX releases for 2008, 2009, and 2010 include:

  • Shine A Light (April 4, 2008)
  • Speed Racer (May 9, 2008)
  • Kung Fu Panda (June 6, 2008)
  • The Dark Knight (July 19, 2008)
  • Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince (November 21, 2008)
  • Under the Sea 3D (February 2009)
  • Monsters vs. Aliens 3D (March 2009)
  • Hubble 3D (working title, February 2010)
  • How to Train Your Dragon 3D (March 2010)
  • Shrek Goes Fourth 3D (May 2010)
