Since IMAX entered the region in 2003 with its first theatre in Moscow, Russia 
has become the Company's third-largest market and one of its fastest-growing 
markets globally. At the end of 2009, IMAX had four theatres in operation and 
one theatre in backlog in Russia and the CIS. As of March 31, 2013, there are 
34 theatres open (28 in Russia and 6 in the CIS) with 22 theatres in backlog.  
The region is also home to some of IMAX's highest-grossing theatres in the 
world, with a 2012 per-screen average of approximately $1.8 million. Two of 
the 10 highest-grossing IMAX theatres of 2012 were located in Russia: the IMAX 
Kinosfera theatre in Moscow and the Seven Stars Mall IMAX theatre in 
Krasnodar. The Company anticipates that over time there could be approximately 
105 IMAX theatres throughout Russia and the CIS. 
"We believe there are tremendous opportunities for growth in Russia and we're 
pleased to expand our existing partnership with Formula Kino and welcome new 
partner Kinomir to help us further penetrate the market," said Andrew Cripps, 
President, IMAX EMEA. "Our success to date in the region underscores Russian 
audiences' deep appreciation for the superior quality IMAX delivers. We will 
continue to work with Russia's best exhibitors and tailor our film slate with 
both Hollywood and Russian blockbusters to thrill more Russian moviegoers with 
The IMAX Experience(®)."
