We took a peak behind the scenes at IMAX Melbourne to discover what the world’s second largest cinema screen offers – and we weren’t disappointed.
Most of us love going to the movies and there’s not much that can top IMAX’s 3D viewing extravaganza.
IMAX Sydney has the BIGGEST cinema screen in the world, and IMAX Melbourne comes a close second. Melbourne IMAX was also one of the first laser projection systems in the Southern Hemisphere.
- The screen is a massive 32 metres wide x 23 metres high.
- The sound system booms out 15,000 watts of surround sound.
- Star Wars: The Force Awakens, 3D was screened every three hours, every day, for four days a week in its first week.
- Star Wars: The Force Awakens, 3D was the most popular film of all time, with 19,000 people viewing the film in the first week.
We chatted to the team at IMAX Melbourne to find out a bit about what makes it so special.
