The IMAX® experience is the combination of science and spectacle, using cutting-edge technology to create a viewing experience unlike any other: crystal-clear images, powerful digital sound and specially-designed theatres delivering an experience that cannot be replicated in conventional multiplexes. IMAX films uses the largest commercial film format in motion picture history – 70mm, 15-perforation – ten times the size of the 35mm standard used in convention filming.
Many films featured at the museum are formatted with 3D technology. Weighing in at over 250 lbs., the IMAX 3D camera uses separate lenses to simulate the leftand right eyes. The two lenses are spaced 2.5 inches apart, the average distance between a human’s eyes. Each lens feeds a separate roll of film. By projecting the two films simultaneously, viewers experience the illusion of depth. However, even 2D films give you the sensation of being placed IN the movie!
