Big-Screen theaters promise more exhibition riches

posted by Michael Zoldessy on July 16, 2012 at 7:45 am

3-D isn’t the only new trend exhibitors are buying into to drive business. The Hollywood Reporter is saying that there could be as many as 2,600 digital large screens by 2016. Industry leaders IMAX along with Cinemark XD and Regal RPX are leading the charge to widen the gap between cinemas and home theaters.

The Screens should be the Normal not special however I do like the upgraded seats there comfy but sadly its only because they get more money per ticket period….

personally I’m all for the theaters themselves creating specialty big screens – it means that other non-IMAX films get the deluxe treatment, it also helps that these screens have at least 7.1 surround sound capabilities, while IMAX is the traditional 5.0 audio setup.
