Together, we will introduce a new sensation of cinema-going for the Chinese moviegoers.”
“The Chinese cinema box office continues to grow at a record rate while the appetite for 3D by Chinese moviegoers remains among the highest in the world,” said Edman Chan, General Manager of Asia for Cinema at RealD. “China is the most populous nation in the world and these installations of RealD 3D across the Womei Theater Chain will further broaden the availability of RealD’s unique, realistic and immersive theatre experience.”
