The former Disney president will continue to be based in Los Angeles.

Mark Zoradi has started working with IMAX Corp. as a non-executive strategic advisor.

Based in Los Angeles, industry veteran Zoradi will work with IMAX to advise them about film acquisition, distribution and marketing, as well as studio and exhibitor relationships.

Zoradi was most recently president of the Walt Disney Motion Pictures Group; he worked for Disney for nearly three decades.

I am confident that Mark’s knowledge and experience working with a thriving global entertainment company, combined with his unique understanding and approach, will be a big asset to IMAX, and I look forward to officially welcoming him to the IMAX family.”

Zoradi added: “IMAX is an incredible brand with a distinct and important position in the overall distribution strategy of nearly every major studio. I look forward to this exciting opportunity, and to being a member of the IMAX team as the Company continues to deliver The IMAX Experience to more audiences around the world.”
