Regal Adding 9 IMAX Locations

New screens will be built as part of a joint venture agreement the companies inked last year

Regal Entertainment Group will install nine additional IMAX locations in the United States, the company announced on Thursday.

The new screens will be built through a joint revenue sharing arrangement with IMAX. 

IMAX and Regal did not announce where the new theaters will be located. 

The construction of the new theaters will fulfill a joint venture agreement that the two companies inked in October 2010.  

The nine new locations will bring the total number of Regal’s IMAX theatres to 77.
