RealD Inc., the Beverly Hills supplier of 3-D equipment to movie theaters, is expanding its business in China.
The company said Monday that it had signed an agreement to supply 3-D equipment for 100 screens in the Womei Theater Chain in China.
The deal is the latest in China for RealD, whose systems are currently available on 850 cinema screens in China with an additional 2,000 screens committed for future installation. RealD has more than 20,700 screeens worldwide.
"The Chinese cinema box office continues to grow at a record rate while the appetite for 3-D by Chinese moviegoers remains among the highest in the world,'' said Edman Chan, general manager of Asia for cinema at RealD.
