Warner Bros. goes digital with Christie/AIX

Warner Bros signed on yesterday to distribute digital movies to theaters via the Christie/AIX network. The only major studio that hasn't signed up with Christie/AIX so far is Paramount. (Though DreamWorks, now part of Paramount, is involved.) The press release says that Christie/AIX is also "continuing late-stage negotiations with other studios including independent distributors to ensure that ultimately all movies can be available in digital versions."


Totally unrelated: Panasonic brought its 103-inch high-def plasma television to New York yesterday for a news conference. It'll be available in time for the holidays...no word on price.
