IMAX (NYSE:IMAX) was once one of the hottest stocks on the market, but since the Avatar induced pop a few years ago, the stock has lost its buzz.
But as investors have moved past the company, theaters are starting to understand the premium theater concept, creating more blockbusters for the big screen. This was evident when Disney (NYSE:DIS) signed up for Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy and Avenger's Alliance along with Star Wars: Episode VII to be show on IMAX.
IMAX also has an advantage over competitors like RealD (UNKNOWN:RLD.DL), who has to rely on 3-D alone for revenue. Not all films work well in 3-D, and that gives IMAX an advantage.
