National Amusements' Rising Star Media Expands IMAX Network in Russia

IMAX's Digital Projection System Continues to Drive Expansion in European Markets
IMAX Corporation (NASDAQ: IMAX; TSX: IMX) and Rising Star Media, a joint venture between National Amusements, Inc. and Soquel Ventures, today announced an agreement to install an IMAX® theatre at Rising Star's KinoStar City multiplex at Mega Belyadacha regional mall in Moscow, Russia. Scheduled to be installed in Moscow shortly, the new theatre will utilize IMAX's new digital projection system. The deal is one of a number of recent significant international deals signed by IMAX, indicating enthusiasm by European exhibitors in the IMAX theatre business following the North American rollout of IMAX's digital projection system.

National Amusements currently operates seven IMAX theatres in the United States, one in Argentina and one in St. Petersburg, Russia.

"The IMAX theatre business has proven to be very effective for both Rising Star Media and National Amusements, and we are very excited to expand with more locations in Russia," said Shari E. Redstone, who leads Rising Star Media and is president of National Amusements, Inc. "IMAX's digital projection system allows greater program flexibility, which enables us to offer our customers even more movies in a truly unique and immersive way.

Hollywood directors are discovering the excitement that the IMAX technology adds to a film, and as a result we are looking forward to being able to present more unique film experiences to our patrons."

"Russian moviegoers love The IMAX Experience®," said Paul B. Heth, who directs Rising Star Media. "Our partnership with IMAX has cemented Rising Star Media's position as a high-tech leader in the Russian exhibition business. We look forward to expanding our IMAX theatre network into Moscow, and through the economical and logistical advantages of IMAX's new digital projection system, we are able to open quickly to take advantage of the amazing IMAX film slate in 2009."

"Our digital projection system has boosted interest from Hollywood studios and exhibitors worldwide, and we're particularly encouraged by the interest we're starting to see in Europe," said IMAX Co-CEOs and Co-Chairmen Richard L. Gelfond and Bradley J. Wechsler. "Russia continues to play a key role in our European expansion strategy, and we're pleased to see top exhibitors who are already in the IMAX business open additional IMAX theatres."

"National Amusements and Rising Star Media have both been fantastic partners and we're delighted to expand our relationship with them as we continue to grow the IMAX network in Russia," added Larry O'Reilly, IMAX's Executive Vice President of Theatre Development. "Rising Star Media operates a successful IMAX theatre in St. Petersburg, and we're confident that their location in Moscow will be well received by moviegoers as well."

IMAX's digital projection system delivers The IMAX Experience and helps drive profitability for studios, exhibitors and IMAX theatres by eliminating the need for film prints, increasing program flexibility and ultimately increasing the number of movies shown on IMAX screens. The system can run both IMAX and IMAX®3D presentations.
