Turkey’s first Imax giant screen is skedded to open in Istanbul next month.
The more cost-effective Imax MPX system will be retrofitted at an eight-screen AFM Maltepe multiplex as part of a previously announced deal with Turkish exhibitor Kultur Ve Gosteri Merkezleri Isletmecilik Ve Ticaret, in partnership with AFM Cinemas. The deal is pending government approval.
AFM is Turkey’s largest exhibitor with 111 screens.
In addition to Hollywood tentpoles, the new theater will also exhibit Imax educational films.
