Two theaters with giant IMAX screens will be built in Vietnam as cinema operators continue to explore the growing interest in the country's relatively nascent market.
The first of the two theaters will be in Ho Chi Minh City, the country’s southern entertainment hub, Canadian-owned IMAX Corporation has announced in a statement.
Both will be established in collaboration with CGV Vietnam, which currently operates the country's largest multiplex cinema chain.
“We are proud to be the first to bring the world's most immersive experience to moviegoers in Vietnam,” CGV Vietnam’s CEO Dong-Won Kwak was quoted as saying in the statement.
It is unclear when the first theater will be opened.
According to the press release, the companies have yet to determine the second cinema’s location.
CGV Vietnam is a wholly-owned subsidiary of South Korea’s biggest multiplex cinema chain CJ CGV, which has 95 theaters open or contracted to be open in partnership with IMAX in its home country and in China.
