Big plans to expand UK chain of IMAX cinemas

Large screen cinema group IMAX is poised for a major expansion of its UK chain, it was reported yesterday.

There are currently 14 IMAX cinemas in the UK, but chief executive Richard Gelfond wants to grow this number to about 50 in the next five to seven years, the Daily Telegraph said.

Interest in IMAX screens surged recently with a number of blockbusters made specifically for the format.
