South Africa will get 3 Imax screens

Johannesburg theater set to bow in November

South Africa is to get three new Imax cinemas this year — two in Johannesburg and one in Pretoria.

The country only boasts one Imax site at the moment, at Cape Town’s popular Waterfront tourist area. The first theater, in Johannesburg, is due for completion in early November.

David Dominicus, general manager of Millennium Expotainment, which holds the Imax rights in South Africa, says the construction of cinemas in Johannesburg has been in the planning for several years, but had been held up pending the necessary investment funds.
