Worldwide Expansion Continues for REAL D Cinema with European Installations

Select Theatres to Present Disney’s “Chicken Little” in 3-D
REAL D, the leader in the delivery of premium 3-D experiences, continues its global expansion with the installation of REAL D Cinema systems in British and German theatres for the 3-D presentation of Disney’s “Chicken Little.” Circuits inking deals with REAL D as part of this arrangement include British theatre operators Odeon and Vue and German theatre operators Cinema Theatre and Cinecitta Multiplexkino. This brings the number of REAL D Cinema installations to 102 screens with locations in the United States, Canada, Mexico, Japan, Australia, England and Germany.

The domestic success of Disney’s “Chicken Little” in 3-D, which enjoyed overwhelming box-office success as 3-D per screen averages outpaced 2-D nearly threefold, has helped drive the rapid adoption of REAL D Cinema by the global exhibition community.

“With the addition of UK and Germany, more than 100 theatres in seven countries now have REAL D Cinemas, a clear indication that the global future of cinema is digital 3-D,” said Michael V. Lewis, Chairman, REAL D. “Top-notch 3-D content from REAL D’s movie studio partners, along with the promise of live concerts and sporting events delivered directly to theatres in REAL D, gives operators the differentiation they need to succeed in an increasingly competitive theatrical environment combating erosion from in-home theatres and closing distribution windows.”
