Did you know?

  • An IMAX 3D film is actually two films being projected perfectly in synchronisation with each other, one for each eye
  • An IMAX film is so heavy that a forklift is required to lift it in and out of position. If rolled out, the average IMAX film would measure around four miles
  • The IMAX screen is the height of four double-decker buses, and 64 taxis could be parked on top if it were laid flat
