Cineworld has recently reached an agreement with the Glasgow Science Centre, an IMAX exhibitor since 2000, to take over the operations of its IMAX theatre – the first IMAX theatre in Scotland. Under the terms of the deal announced today, Cineworld will install an IMAX digital theatre system before transitioning to IMAX's dual 4K laser system.

"Cineworld is delighted to add another IMAX theatre to our circuit and to install IMAX's upcoming laser solution at the Glasgow Science Centre, which will allow us to present the full spectrum of IMAX content," said Crispin Lilly, Vice President of Business Affairs, Cineworld Group PLC. "The IMAX Experience® has become synonymous with the biggest event movies and, as such, we're pleased to build on our successful partnership."

"As we expand our network throughout Europe, growing relationships with partners such as Cineworld is a key strategy to support our growth," said Andrew Cripps, President, IMAX EMEA. "Together with Cineworld we look forward bringing even more audiences across the UK the biggest blockbusters in the world's most immersive film format."

IMAX's next-generation laser digital projection system, which represents the culmination of the largest R&D initiative in IMAX's history, incorporates the laser digital intellectual property IMAX licensed exclusively from Eastman Kodak and Barco's unique laser innovations. It is expected to set a new benchmark as the industry's premium entertainment experience and will enable IMAX's largest screens to deliver the highest-quality digital content available with greater brightness and clarity, a wider color gamut and deeper blacks.
