What makes IMAX so special?

The content being shown in an IMAX theatre is significantly better than the content playing down the hall. The secret sauce in the IMAX mix is DMR – or Digital Re-mastering – a transformative process we invented.

The History of IMAX

It all began when a small group of Canadian experimental filmmakers came together to produce a multi-screen film installation at EXPO ‘67 in Montreal. The installation was part of a competition to create the first truly large-screen film experience. The filmmakers did it by syncing nine projectors together. It was a huge technological challenge... And they pulled it off!

The IMAX Experience

It is going to the theatre to forget you’re at the movies. Sitting there, without the slightest doubt, convinced you’re someplace else. Going, in the space of minutes, to a place that’s frightening, intense, heart-rending, altogether magical – a place you’ve never been before.

Dark Knight Rises director Christopher Nolan says IMAX is the best format

The Dark Knight Rises is one of the year's hotly anticipated films and we know there are many IMAX fans out there keen to be among the first to experience director Christopher Nolan's work on the world's largest screen possible.

The curtain is raised on the installation of the new IMAX screen. Take a look behind the scenes.

On Thursday 9 February at around 10.30am, the new giant IMAX screen was raised, replacing the old one which has served as our film backdrop for the past 15 years.

Phase One of the new IMAX screen installation begins with removal of the old one!

The world's biggest IMAX screen has (temporarily) come down in preparation for the new screen installation. At about 8.30am this morning, a team of riggers climbed to the top of the auditorium and set the screen free from the scaffolding holding it up from behind.
