Agreement with SPI Cinemas Private Limited Expands IMAX Commercial Network to 13 Theatres in India
IMAX (NYSE:IMAX) (TSX:IMX) and SPI Cinemas Private Limited (SPI) today announced an agreement to install four digital IMAX® theatre systems in new SPI Cinemas complexes across India.  The deal brings the total number of commercial IMAX® theatres open or contracted to open in India to 13.

The local Indian film market currently ranks number one in the world for attendance and film production with over 1,000 films produced a year and approximately 90% of revenues derived from non-English language movies.  Recent reports project the country's film industry to grow from $3.2 billion in 2010 to $5 billion by 2014.

"We are pleased to expand our relationship with SPI in India," said IMAX CEO Richard L. Gelfond.  "Not only is SPI Cinemas' commitment to offering cutting-edge entertainment experiences perfectly aligned with the IMAX brand, but this agreement puts us in position to consider the local release of Bollywood films, which will be key to the success and growth of IMAX in this strategically important region of world."

"SPI is a leading player in the Indian exhibition industry, with multiplexes that have some of the highest attendance rates.  Today's agreement will bring IMAX theatres into their new multiplexes, which will be located in high-growth areas," said Don Savant, IMAX's Senior Vice President and Managing Director, Asia Pacific. "Our unparalleled technology, worldwide brand and exciting film slate coupled with SPI's state-of-the art multiplexes are sure to thrill audiences across India and we are pleased to join forces with them once again."

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.
