Posted by Kyle Maloney on May 1, 2013 - 2:46:21 PM

The new Imax theater will be the third largest Imax theater in North America. It will be built 94 feet wide with new stadium seating installed along with an Imax sound system and digital projector. The theater will seat 986 people.


Renovation work will take several months and the theater is scheduled to reopen in September 2013.


A statement posted on the theater’s official website said, “The renovations will not affect any of the historic architecture. We have been working closely with the Historic Resources Group every step of the way to ensure that we do not alter anything that is historically significant.”


Establishing the Imax at the Chinese Theatre will allow for the theater to host many big budget action film premieres, along with screenings of other Hollywood movies and perhaps Chinese films.
