Kung Fu Panda Opens In IMAX Today

IMAX and DreamWorks Animation will release KUNG FU PANDA in 89 domestic IMAX theaters from June 2008 to May 2010. The film opens in theaters today.

The film will also open in 37 IMAX theatres internationally during the days and weeks following the domestic launch. Kung Fu Panda has been digitally re-mastered into the unparalleled image and sound quality of The IMAX Experience with IMAX DMR technology.

"We believe KUNG FU PANDA is well-suited for The IMAX Experience, which immerses moviegoers into the action on the big screen," said Jeffrey Katzenberg, CEO of DreamWorks Animation. "We always aim to deliver a premium entertainment experience to our audience and believe IMAX helps us to do that."

"Kung Fu Panda marks the beginning of an important new studio relationship for the IMAX theatre network, and it represents a whole new brand of movie for IMAX fans," said Greg Foster, Chairman and President of IMAX Filmed Ent. "This is a fantastic way to kick off our summer movie slate, and we are very excited to share this big summer film with DreamWorks Animation and our audiences worldwide."

KUNG FU PANDA: The IMAX Experience is scheduled to play day-and-date at the following IMAX Theatres beginning on June 6.
