OverviewSuggest Edit

IMAX It’s an entertainment experience so real you feel it in your bones, so magical it takes you places you have never been; so all-encompassing you’re not just peeking through the window, but part of the action. Behind it is a world of high technology – proprietary software, architecture and equipment pioneered by IMAX. IMAX is unique – not an entertainment or technology or distribution company but all three at once: an innovator with patented technology; a Hollywood insider that partners with the world’s most celebrated movie-makers to enhance their biggest blockbusters and documentaries; and a global enterprise with more than 1000 theatres in 68 countries. There’s only one IMAX, and once experienced there’s no going back…
