"Our vision is simple – offer the highest-quality entertainment experience 
possible and continually surpass our guests' expectations," said Alejandro 
Ramirez, CEO of Cinepolis. "IMAX helps us deliver on this promise and we're 
delighted to expand our partnership. We are also excited about IMAX's powerful 
line-up of blockbusters titles and the fact that more of Hollywood's leading 
directors are making IMAX a unique part of their films. We expect that this, 
together with IMAX's immersive format, will allow us to offer our guests a 
differentiated experience for which they're willing to pay a premium." 
"Mexico is a leading movie-going market we've only begun to penetrate and 
today's agreement proves our momentum is building in Latin America - a key 
area of focus for IMAX," said Richard L. Gelfond, CEO of IMAX. "As a result of 
our partnership with Cinepolis, IMAX is in Mexico's four highest-grossing 
complexes of 2012. By leveraging these locations as reference sites and 
expanding our relationship with Cinepolis to bring IMAX to more high-growth 
areas in Mexico, we believe we are poised to take advantage of the many 
opportunities that exist in this market."
