28,000 Watts of Sound
IMAX's powerful audio system delivers laser-aligned digital sounds. Although the IMAX screen appears to be solid, it is actually perforated with thousands of tiny holes to allow sound to pass through.
IMAX Fun Facts

- IMAX glasses bring the images back into alignment by canceling out one of the two images for each eye.
Forty-five hundred times larger than an average TV screen, IMAX giant screens soar up to eight stories high and have a slight curvature that extends beyond the field of geometric recognition. Because these screens fill your peripheral vision, you feel like you’re right in the action.
