IMAX (an acronym for Image maximum) is a Canadian motion picture film format and a set of cinema projection standards developed by Graeme Ferguson, Roman Kroitor, Robert Kerr, and William C. Shaw. IMAX has the capacity to record and display images of far greater size and resolution than conventional film systems. Since 2002, some feature films have been converted (or upgraded) into IMAX format for displaying in IMAX theatres and some have also been partially shot in IMAX.
IMAX is the most widely used system for special-venue film presentations. As of June 2016, there were 1,102 IMAX theatres in 69 countries.

    Question What is your favourite cinema experience?

    In my local VUE cinema they have recliner seats as standard, good audio, the screen is generally clear. It ticks all the boxes for each cinema release I want to see. I have been thinking though, what's the 'best' cinema experience you can go for and is it worth it price/effort wise? I have only...

    Question Mission Impossible:DR pt1 in IMAX - Have I missed the boat?

    I was hoping to catch MI Dead Reckoning Pt 1 in IMAX with a friend in August, but I've only just realised that Oppenheimer has basically taken over all the IMAX screens. I've now read an article about Tom Cruise trying to get film execs to get MI:7 back into IMAX, but it doesn't look promising...

    Oppenheimer (IMAX) Movie Review & Comments

    Likely to win ALL the awards, even by Academy judges who can't be bothered to sit through it, certainly the only way to watch this level of spectacular sound and fury is on the biggest IMAX screen you can find. Read the review. Write your own review for Oppenheimer

    Denon 4700 imax bizarre problem

    TL;DR My Denon 4700 and iMax don’t mix very well. If I try to watch an iMax Enhanced film on the Bravia Core app, my centre channel starts to go really quiet and stays quiet even when i’m not watching iMax stuff. Resetting the AVR does not fix it. Turning off the AVR for a length of time does...

    Black Adam (IMAX) Movie Review & Comments

    Dwayne Johnson finally brings us his long-awaited attempt at cracking the cinematic superhero and despite what the awful trailers warned us of, it’s okay, clean, epically violent fun. As long as you don’t apply any level of critical thought to any part of it whatsoever... Read the review...

    Nope (IMAX) Movie Review & Comments

    Jordan Peele steps it up a gear in his thrilling UFO movie. Also in his bitingly satirical movie about the workings of Hollywood. Also in his horror comedy movie. It’s…they’re all… it’s the same movie. Read the review. Write your own review for Nope

    IMAX enhanced

    Hi, all. I have a Sony 270es. Had it for a few years now & love it. Just one question about IMAX enhanced. My AV amp is an Onkyo RZ840. How do I set up my projector for IMAX enhanced?

    Jurassic World Dominion Movie IMAX Review & Comments

    The finale of the blockbuster dino-franchise, while bringing back some much-welcomed familiar faces, ignores all the interesting set-up of the previous entry and falls back on tired old storytelling tropes, reliant on some admittedly extraordinary set pieces and little else. Read the review...

    Not enough IMAX on physical discs

    With the recent release of Dune omitting yet again the IMAX sequences for the home - are you frustrated by this, or do you hate fluctuating ratios?
