A triumph in film technology, the largest of all motion picture screens reminds you how big our world is.. The Size of the Screen 4 1/2 stories tall and 61/2 stories wide, or 44-by-66 feet.
The Size of the Film The IMAX film is 10 times as large as 35mm film, and three times as large as standard 70mm.
The Size of the Sound A vibrating, thirty-eight speakers of surround sound at 8,000 watts.
The Result Indy race cars roaring around the track, jets blasting between mountain peaks or boats plowing through a choppy sea so realistically that many moviegoers over the years have found themselves needing barf bags. Unfortunately, they're not provided. A huge consideration for capturing the perfect images results in IMAX's amazing subject matters and cinematography techniques, like a four-story astronaut drifting in a space walk with the whole of Africa hundreds of miles below.
