Fantasia 2000 Hits IMAX Record

HOLLYWOOD (Variety) - Disney's animated ``Fantasia 2000'' broke records at IMAX theaters in its worldwide opening bow over the New Year's holiday weekend. In North America, where the ``continuation'' of Walt Disney's 1940 classic bowed on 54 screens, the two-day haul was $2.2 million with a sizzling average of $41,481 per screen. The figure represents the best gross ever for an IMAX release and surpasses the highest weekly total for any previous IMAX picture, Disney said.

Grosses from the film's 21 international screens are expected to be released Tuesday, Disney said. ``Fantasia 2000'' is set to run exclusively at IMAX theaters through April 30, having already completed a 10-day ``World Premiere Tour'' with live concert performances. (From Yahoo.com News)

"James Levine and London's 120-piece Philharmonia Orchestra perform at Fantasia 2000's world premiere on December 17 at Carnegie Hall in New York City. Following Carnegie Hall performances on December 18 and 19, the Philharmonia will jet-set to accompany screenings at Royal Albert Hall in London (Dec. 21), Theatre des Champs-Elysees in Paris (Dec. 22), and Orchard Hall in Tokyo (Dec. 27). The orchestra, conducted by Derrick Inouye, performs at a New Year's Eve concert and screening at Pasadena Civic Auditorium (for information, call 818-238-1095).
