IMAX said today it will show Lionsgate’s The Hunger Games on 270 IMAX screens in North America when the anticipated movie bows wide March 23. The plan is for a limited one-week engagement in the large-screen format. The The film will also appear on 19 IMAX screens in the UK and France. “With two weeks to go, we have seen substantial midnight sellouts in IMAX theatres across the country leading exhibitors to begin offering 3 AM shows to meet demand,” Greg Foster, Chairman and President of IMAX Filmed Entertainment, said in a release.
