IMAX 70mm INTERSTELLAR Print Assembly Video

Ever wonder how a 70mm IMAX print is assembled and prepared for projection? Fort Lauderdale, Florida’s AutoNation IMAX Theater Chief Projectionist Armando Mena released a video that explains how this is accomplished, and he does it with a print of Christopher Nolan's Interstellar. It shows you just how much work goes into projecting 70mm film onto a giant IMAX screen so that audiences can enjoy the movie. 

After seeing all of the effort put into this, I can see why IMAX is eventually eventually going drop the use of celluloid and go full digital with a laser projector system. The video was posted by Discovery and Science, and I'd like to see more behind-the-scenes videos like this. If you have a theater to go to where you can watch Interstellar in 70mm IMAX, you need to do it!
