The Changing Face of Cinema
According to the Cinema Exhibitors' Association (CEAUK), "at the end of 2009, it was estimated that there were some 540 digital screens in the UK, of which some 420 were 3D-enabled".
The number of digital cinema screens around the world reached 16,405 in 2009, up 86.4% from a year earlier, with further growth expected in 2010 as digital 3D pushes the market toward a 35mm-free cinema sector, according to Screen Digest.
