When seeing a movie in an IMAX® theatre, it’s like seeing a different movie altogether. Everything from the movie itself to the theatre’s technology and design has been developed and customized to make you believe you’re part of the action. One of the key ingredients to creating The IMAX Experience® is IMAX® DMR, or digital re-mastering.
There are two ways to create an IMAX movie. It can either be captured with the extremely high resolution IMAX® cameras or go through IMAX’s proprietary DMR process to enhance the film’s image and audio.

3D has certainly become a popular format over the past few years and many of this year’s most highly-anticipated films will be presented in 3D. The format was designed to make you feel like you’re part of the movie, however, all 3D experiences are not the same.
IMAX has been revolutionizing the 3D moviegoing experience for more than two decades and we would like to take a moment to show you what makes IMAX® 3D movies so different.
Watch Coco as she discusses how we see 3 dimensions in our everyday lives and what it takes to create an immersive IMAX 3D experience in our most recent IMAX 101 video on IMAX 3D.

Now that you’ve been formally introduced to our DMR technology, (if you haven’t, please click here to catch up) we’d like to dive a bit deeper into what happens behind the scenes during this transformative process.
As we’ve mentioned in other posts, your experience in an IMAX theatre is entirely different from any other theatre. One of the key reasons is because the content being shown in an IMAX theatre is significantly better than the content playing down the hall.
