Experience IMAX® 3D at the IMAX® Theatre of the Old Port of Montréal. Unforgettable !
The IMAX® projector is the most advanced, highest-precision, most powerful projector ever built.
IMAX® uses the largest film frame in motion picture history – more than ten times the size of a conventional 35 mm frame and three times larger than a normal 70mm movie frame.
The facts are simple: the larger the film frame, the better the picture quality. The sheer size of an IMAX® film frame, combined with the unique IMAX® projection technology, is the key to the extraordinary sharpness and clarity of IMAX® films.
The IMAX® image is projected onto a giant screen ten times the size of a conventional screen, up to eight stories high.
The steepy-pitched seating gives everyone – children included – a perfect, full view of the picture. You are not aware of the edge of the screen: the high-fidelity picture effectively fills your field of vision. Each person in the audience has the sense of being totally immersed in the film.
As more than 300 million people around the world will testify, seeing an IMAX® film is a stunning experience. It puts you into the centre of the action in a way no ordinary screen presentation can, drawing you in with images that are so real you want to touch them, so powerful that you can feel them. IMAX® is, quite simply, the finest motion picture system that exists. Images of surpassed size, clarity and impact are seen on giant screens, enhanced by a superb six-channel sound system.
Spectators are totally surrounded by the soundtrack. They can hear fine details with remarkable clarity and can physically ‘feel’ the full impact of more intense moments. The sound experience rivals the image: exceptional quality, far beyond anything that conventional theatres can offer.
