Norway’s first all-digital multiplex opens
OSLO, NOWAY — The Oslo Municipal Cinemas opened the first all-digital multiplex in Norway over the weekend. Some 9,000 film fans turned out to see a combination of Norwegian and Hollywood films.
Half of the Ringen Kino’s six screens are 3D capable. The theater seats a total of 925.
