About The IMAX Experience®
In IMAX, you’re experiencing a different movie altogether: everything
from the movie itself to the theatre’s technology and design was
developed and customized to make you believe you’re part of the action.
IMAX works directly with filmmakers to enhance the movie using its
Digital Re-Mastering® process, which delivers superior picture and sound
quality. Played through IMAX’s state-of-the art projection system, the
resulting images are so lifelike and crystal-clear you’ll forget you’re
in a theatre.
IMAX grabs your senses. You don’t just hear the powerful sound system;
you feel it all around you. Visually, there is no frame. IMAX’s custom
theatre design creates a picture that is higher, wider and closer –
filling your peripheral view.
It’s not one thing that makes The IMAX Experience but a combination of
all these elements. That’s the difference between seeing a movie and
being part of one.
