Warner Mycal adds 3-D screens

Chain to expand by 18 screens

TOKYO — Exhib Warner Mycal plans to add 18 3-D digital screens to the two it already has in its national chain.

The screens will be equipped with advanced 3-D projection systems developed by REAL D of the U.S.

At present, Japan has only three 3-D screens.

The new additions will expand Warner Mycal’s 3-D network from Ebetsu, on the northernmost main island of Hokkaido, to Kumamoto on the southernmost main island of Kyushu.

Warner Mycal’s 3-D line-up includes “Beowulf,” which opens Dec.1, and “Meet the Robinsons,” which bows Dec. 22.

Founded in 1991, Warner Mycal opened Japan’s first true multiplex in 1993. It now has 401 screens at 51 sites.
