After stocking up on snacks, duos immerse themselves in the all-encompassing sounds and sights of an IMAX movie. The epic battles of Guillermo Del Toro’s Pacific Rim invade the screen, swallowing up viewers in slugfests between massive robots and monstrous sea creatures. Starting August 9, the Matt Damon-starring Elysium exploits IMAX’s crystalline sound quality and large-format cameras to draw viewers into its tale of a pristine space station orbiting a desperate, ruined Earth. Shot on location in Palau and French Polynesia, the vivid visuals of The Last Reef 3D: Cities Beneath the Sea submerge viewers in fragile, iridescent environments teeming with aquatic life. Moviegoers are encouraged to arrive at least 30 minutes before showtime.

“Watch a movie…or be part of one.” This tagline from IMAX’s introduction video perfectly sums up their mission. An IMAX film rises above the typical cinematic experience by making each viewer feel like they’re inside the world unfolding in front of them. Crisp images captured by large-format cameras burst out of the screen like a hulked-out movie usher, and surround sound reverberates off the stadium seating.
