"We achieved a great deal over the course of 2014, including the completion of our world-class laser projection system, the sale of a 20% stake in our China business, the signing of long term film deals with most major studios and continued network growth," said IMAX CEO Richard Gelfond. "We believe these accomplishments position us well, not only to take advantage of the 2015 film slate, which is already off to a great start, but also to help drive long-term growth."
The IMAX system has its roots in EXPO '67 in Montreal, Canada where multi-screen films were the hit of the fair. A small group of Canadian filmmakers/entrepreneurs who had made some of those popular films, decided to design a new system using a single, powerful projector, rather than the cumbersome multiple projectors used at that time. The result: the IMAX motion picture projection system.
IMAX technology premiered at the Fuji Pavilion, EXPO '70 in Osaka, Japan.
The first permanent IMAX projection system was installed at Ontario Place's Cinesphere in Toronto in 1971. IMAX Dome (OMNIMAX) debuted at the Reuben H. Fleet Space Theatre in San Diego in 1973.
The company went public on NASDAQ in June 1994.
