NEW YORK — Big-screen technology company IMAX Corp. says it has deals to open three more theaters in China.

The transactions will give IMAX a total of 229 theaters open or contracted to open in China.

IMAX said Wednesday that it has signed deals with Omnijoi Cinema Development Co., Guangzhou Fanbo Investment Consulting Co. and Zhejiang Wandi International Cineplex Co. It will open one new theater with each partner.

Omnijoi, an existing partner, is expected to open an IMAX theater in Changzhou in November. This will bring the company’s IMAX commitment to 14 theaters.
