About a month ago, ewok2030 tapped IMAX as an increasingly international pick: "Expanding in China, Russia, and India and has been successful in the US. China and India have such a large population of what I could see as eager consumers of entertainment."
Over the next five years, in fact, IMAX is expected to grow its bottom line at a brisk rate of 21.5% annually. That's faster than movie exhibition competitors Carmike (6.9%), Cinemark (7.8%), and Regal (3.2%).
CAPS member bortman2000 elaborates on the IMAX bull case:
The average Joe is finally starting to realize how much more superior high definition content is, and is showing his willingness to pay for bigger and better viewing experiences, whether it be 3-D, IMAX, or both.
I have a feeling IMAX screens are going to being showing up more and more across the country in the next several years. My city only has one IMAX theater, and its showings are frequently sold out, even at $18 per ticket.
