India is set to get its first Imax theatre - in its leading film city Mumbai - following an agreement signed last week between the Canadian large format specialist and Indian film processing lab, Adlabs.

Scheduled to open in December this year, the $12.5m cinema will have the world's largest Imax dome and seat 520.

The admission price for the cinema has been fixed at $3 for adults and $1.50 for children. Indian filmmaker Bharat Bala is planning to produce India's first Imax film. Imax is also planning to open theatres in the Indian cities of Hyderabad and Ahmedabad.
