Cineplex Entertainment has announced that two new IMAX® theatres will open on opposite sides of the country this week – one in Victoria and the other in London. Promotional presentations of Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol for invited guests will celebrate the openings on December 14th, with the official public openings taking place on Friday, December 16th.
“Cineplex is delighted to bring the IMAX Experience back to London so guests can once again enjoy the latest movies as they are released in the IMAX format,” said Pat Marshall, Vice President, Communications and Investor Relations, Cineplex Entertainment.
The new IMAX theatres at SilverCity Victoria and London feature brand new seats, screen, sound system and digital IMAX projection system so guests can fully enjoy the IMAX experience combining crystal-clear images and powerful digital sound with customized theatre geometry to create a uniquely immersive movie experience.
The IMAX Theatre at both SilverCity Cinemas has been designed for use in a multiplex setting. To maximize the field of view in the modified auditorium, the screen was replaced with a larger, slightly curved and specially treated IMAX screen positioned closer to the audience.
