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.

Out with the old screen and in with the new!

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.
