"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."

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.
