IMAX Corporation and Cinepolis have signed a deal to instal eight new IMAX(R) theatres in existing Cinepolis multiplexes throughout Latin America.

Four of the IMAX theatres will be located in Colombia, with a single theatre each in Brazil, Guatemala, Panama and Peru.

Today’s announcement follows recent agreements between the companies in September for an IMAX theatre in India and in April for five IMAX theatres in Mexico, bringing to 22 the exhibitor’s total IMAX commercial footprint.

Cinepolis, the world’s fourth largest cinema circuit operating more than 3,000 screens in 11 countries, currently has six IMAX theatres open in Mexico and one in Brazil.
