About The IMAX Experience(®)
In IMAX, you're experiencing a different movie altogether: everything from the 
movie itself to the theatre's technology and design, were developed and 
customized to make you believe you're part of the action. 
IMAX works directly with filmmakers to enhance the movie using its Digital 
Re-Mastering® process, which delivers superior picture and sound quality. 
Played through IMAX's state-of-the art projection system, the resulting images 
are so lifelike and crystal-clear you'll forget you're in a theatre. 
IMAX grabs your senses. You don't just hear the powerful sound system; you 
feel it all around you. Visually, there is no frame. IMAX's custom theatre 
design creates a picture that is higher, wider and closer - filling your 
peripheral view. 
It's not one thing that makes The IMAX Experience(®) but a combination of all 
these elements. That's the difference between seeing a movie and being part of 
IMAX Is Believing.
