Imax, Pathe extend Netherlands deal

Three new digital systems to be installed in Holland

TORONTO -- Imax Corp. and Pathe Netherlands are to expand their joint venture theatre agreement by installing three new digital systems in Holland.

The deal with Pathe Netherlands, which is aligned with the Paris-based EuroPalaces exhibition group, will see Imax upgrade an Amsterdam-based theatre and install digital projections systems in separate theatres in Rotterdam and Eindhoven.

Imax first went Dutch with Pathe Netherlands in 2005 with an MPX theatre in Amsterdam.

Toronto-based Imax is also to install a digital projection system at another Europalaces/Pathe theatre outside Paris, the Gaumont Disney Village venue.
