Ready for a big car chase? The seventh installment of the famous action series “Fast & Furious” will premiere in Vietnam on a giant screen at the country’s first IMAX theater, cinema operator CGV has announced.
The much-anticipated film will be screened on April 19 in 3D at the theater, situated at VivoCity shopping mall in Ho Chi Minh City’s District 7, according to CGV, which currently operates Vietnam’s largest multiplex cinema chain.
Ticket prices will be announced next week, a representative of CGV said.
CGV said on its website that it will screen more films at the IMAX theater, including the sequels of famous action series like “The Avengers: Age of Ultron” and “Terminator: Genesis”, and sci-fi adventure film "Jurassic World."
Previously Canadian-owned IMAX Corporation announced that it will collaborate with the cinema operator in opening two theaters in Vietnam.
The second one will likely be built in Hanoi, according to the CGV representative, adding that the company has not decided on its 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.
