The Marcus Addison converted its IMAX screen to a regular auditorium. I don’t know if there are others.

In the case of Quebec City, which 98% of the population speak French, the IMAX was unable to book any hollywood IMAX movies like The Polar Express, which was packin'em in at the Paramount in Montréal and elsewhere, Is Famous Players planning to add an IMAX at StarCite Ste Foy nearby?

The IMAX screen in Waikiki closed in the summer of 2003. This screen was adjacent to (but not part of) the Waikiki triplex that closed the previous year.
