Gerald V. Dibbayawan (pictured left), chief executive officer of TGV Cinemas, added that the 1Utama IMAX theatre is just one of the many exciting initiatives TGV Cinemas has in store for cinemagoers this year.

"In the coming months, we plan to introduce our speciality halls and launch two more IMAX theatres in TGV Tebrau, Johor and TGV Gurney Paragon, Penang."
