Our Hollywood people are entertainment business insiders with unparalleled production experience.

Our business people are consummate sales and marketing professionals who are spreading the IMAX word around the world.

Driven by our employees’ commitment to take audiences to places they’ve only dreamed of – IMAX has revolutionized the way people experience entertainment.
