Buena Vista Intl. Japan unspooled “Chicken Little” on Thursday, Japan’s first screening using the Disney Digital 3-D system, at the AMC Ikspiari multiplex in the Tokyo Disney Resort.
The screening introduced the media to the system before sneak previews at the weekend. The film opens nationwide this Friday.
The 16-screen plex is the first in Japan to install the system, even if it’s on only one screen. The Warner Mycal Cinemas site in Tama Center, a Tokyo suburb, will also screen the film using the Disney Digital 3-D system after the start of its wide release.
The system is already in use at 84 sites in the U.S.
