The Birmingham Post reports:
Birmingham’s IMAX cinema is to close down and reopen under a new name as an independent venue offering new state-of-the-art digital technology.
Instead of being tied into IMAX products, the cinema at Millennium Point will show the biggest new releases and even special event broadcasts such as the Olympics, Wimbledon, theatre and opera.
The 385-seat cinema will cease trading as an IMAX screen on September 14, two weeks before its 10th birthday.
It is planned to reopen before October 22 in time to be able to screen Steven Spielberg’s latest film, The Adventures of Tin Tin: The Secret of the Unicorn, which is released on October 26.
