Get in the movie!
Just over 40 years ago, an idea was born that transformed the way people experience movies. The technological breakthrough of four Canadians: Graeme Ferguson, Roman Kroitor, Robert Kerr and William Shaw resulted in the invention of IMAX, the best cinematic experience available. Today, close to a billion people worldwide have visited an IMAX theatre. The IMAX Experience® combines the world’s clearest and brightest motion picture images with digital surround sound and an immersive theatre geometry that puts audiences IN the movie in a way that cannot be replicated in ordinary movie theatres or at home. IMAX Corporation is one of the world’s leading entertainment technology companies, specializing in digital and film-based motion picture technologies. In 1997, IMAX’s innovation was recognized with an Academy Award® for Scientific and Technical Achievement. In 2008, the Company intends to introduce its first fully digital IMAX 3D projection system paving the way for a new generation to enjoy the biggest and best cinematic experiences delivered with the newest technologies. IMAX is headquartered in Mississauga, Ontario with offices in New York, Los Angeles, Shanghai and Europe.
