IMAX, Odeon cinemas extend partnership

Cardiff, Wales screen becomes partnership's fifth

TORONTO -- European exhibitor Odeon & UCI Cinemas Group is to install another super-sized digital Imax screen in a Cardiff, Wales multiplex.

Odeon announced last June a separate deal for an Imax theatre with digital projection in Gateshead, UK.

Toronto-based Imax said the Cardiff and Gateshead theatres are set to open in December.

Odeon already operates Imax screens in Wimbledon and Greenwich in London.
