Megan Colligan to Depart IMAX Entertainment as President

Megan Colligan, President of IMAX Entertainment is set to step down from her position at the company. This news was announced by Rich Gelfond, CEO of IMAX in a note sent out yesterday.

Colligon was with the company for four years and during her stay she successfully navigated the challenges posed by Covid-19 and managed to get cinema reopenings safely with numerous safety initiatives. Additionally, she came up with stunts such as ‘Filmed for IMAX Camera Program’ which aimed to fill auditoriums during dry tentpole periods. She also played a significant role in expanding local language blockbuster business in the theaters.

Before joining IMAX in 2019, Colligan held executive roles at Paramount Pictures for eleven years where she was responsible for taking charge of marketing campaigns for franchises such as Transformers, Mission: Impossible and Star Trek. During her service at Paramount Pictures, she efficiently crafted effective strategies for successful box office campaigns which amplified audiences’ engagement and contributed significantly towards these films achieving their goals at the ticket counter.

In addition to her professional accomplishments, Colligon is also an active member of AMPAS (Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences). Her hard work did not go unnoticed either as she was honoured with the 2013 Sherry Lansing Award from Big Brothers or Big Sisters of Greater Los Angeles for her contributions towards the film industry. This award is given annually to one or more individuals who have made outstanding contributions towards philanthropy or community service in the entertainment industry. Apart from this award, she has been lauded several times throughout her career for making a remarkable impact on the film industry both domestically and internationally.

The departure of Megan Colligan from IMAX Entertainment certainly marks an end to an era where she brought innovation through innovative processes that improved production quality across various platforms such as theatrical releases, home video releases and digital formats; leading IMAX into new dimensions with visionary thinking as well as embracing partnerships that drove revenue growth during challenging times created by Covid-19 pandemic. Although there is much speculation about who would succeed Megan Colligan yet no successor has been named officially so far but we can be assured that whoever will head this prestigious post will have big shoes to fill!

We at IMAX Entertainment would like to thank Megan Colligan for her efforts and wish her all the best in her future endeavours. We also hope that our paths cross again soon!
