In the latest in a slew of IMAX installation deals, the company announced it has partnered with Chinese exhibitor Pavilions to introduce three systems.

The first system is scheduled to open at the Lumiere Pavilion in Chongqing at the end of 2010. The second will be at the Guangzhou Cultural Centre (Tai Ko Hui) in downtown Guangzhou in August 2011, and the third deal for 2012 will be announced in due course.

The arrangement brings the total number of IMAX theatres scheduled to be operating in China by 2012 to 57, and the total number of IMAX systems signings announced year-to-date to 95.
