THE IMAX DIFFERENCE - BIGGER IS JUST THE BEGINNING
IMAX, an innovator in entertainment technology, combines proprietary software, architecture and equipment to create experiences that take you beyond the edge of your seat to a world you've never imagined. Top filmmakers and studios are utilizing IMAX theatres to connect with audiences in extraordinary ways, and, as such, IMAX's network is among the most important and successful theatrical distribution platforms for major event films around the globe.
IMAX IN THEATRES IS AN UNFORGETTABLE EXPERIENCE
The best way to experience IMAX is simply by watching a movie in Cinema City IMAX.
Go deeper into the world's most innovative movie-going experience.
An immense explosion. A whisper heard over your shoulder. The rumbling bass you feel instead of hear. The combination of our perfectly tuned integrated 12 channel immersive sound system and our precise speaker orientation ensures you can hear a pin drop and be able to tell exactly where it landed. Every note of the soundtrack and every scuff of a shoe is clearer in IMAX, with a complete overhaul of each movie’s audio overseen by the film’s director. All of this pristine sound is then pumped into a theatre that has been customized for an optimal experience.
Clarity, detail and size make IMAX more than a movie. Our remastering — or DMR — process fully transforms every frame of a film to produce the best possible version of a filmmaker’s vision. Two projectors run simultaneously to provide the perfect image with a balance of warmth and sharpness. IMAX draws you into something as close to reality as you have ever experienced.
Movies are watched. But seeing a movie in an IMAX® theatre is so much more. That’s what we call The IMAX Experience®. Every element in our theatres is planned, designed and positioned with exacting standards to create the most intense experience. This science is our theatre geometry, and it ensures movie magic every time the lights go down.
A super-advanced piece of technology that’s been to the top of Everest, the bottom of the ocean and even to space. For over 40 years, IMAX cameras have pushed the limits of engineering and are known industry-wide as the best premium filmmaking tools available today.
Cinema City IMAX screen is 14 meters high and 24 meters long. It is constructed of a special diffused silver vinyl perforated with thousands of tiny holes which allow sound to pass through freely, giving the screen "acoustical transparency”.
The screen is flat but has a slight compound curvature that extends beyond the field of the edge of peripheral vision. This, combined with the 23 degree pitch angle of the seating area, provides a full unobstructed view from every seat. Even if 2 m high person is sitting in front of you, you will see over his head.
