New IMAX screen in Birmingham to open for 'Skyfall'

Bond News - 11-06-12
A new IMAX screen will open the UK's second city, Birmingham, just in time for James Bond's latest adventure 'Skyfall'.

Cineworld Broad Street is set to benefit from a near £1 million investment in the technology. Manager Paul Millington said he was looking forward to having IMAX at his cinema.

“Our IMAX screen will go into Screen 6, which is one of our biggest,” he said.

“We will lose around 80 seats at the front, but everyone else will then be faced with this huge screen. Because it’s a false ceiling above the theatre, we can take the new screen really high inside the auditorium. We’re hoping to have it installed in time for the new Bond movie at the end of October.”

Thanks to `Samuel001` for the alert.
