IMAX is Opening The Worlds Biggest Movie Theater Screen That is Bigger Than a Boeing 737
IMAX has gone all out and created the worlds largest movie theater screen! They teamed up with the independent German cinema operator Lochmann Filmtheaterbetriebe to bring us this massive screen.
So how big is it? It’s about 125 feet long and over 72 feet tall. That’s bigger than a Boeing 737 jet liner. Just for comparison, a standard IMAX screen is 72 feet wide and 53 feet tall.
The screen will open in 2020 and I hope that one day they will build one here in the states so that I can experience this cinema badassery!
Heinz Lochmann, Head of the Lochmann Filmtheaterbetriebe had this to say in a statement:
“If you want your guests to come back to your theater, you have to offer them an unforgettable experience. Cinemas are where dreams come to life and where audiences come to relax and be totally immersed in the movies they love. There is nothing like IMAX when it comes to delivering the world’s most immersive cinematic experience.”
Richard L. Gelfond, CEO, IMAX added:
“Global demand for The IMAX experience is stronger than ever as shown by our recent performance and growth in Germany. Now, through our new partnership with the Lochmann Filmtheaterbetriebe, the largest IMAX theater in world will reside in Germany and serve as a premium entertainment destination in the country.”
This is going to be a hell of an awesome cinema experience for movie lovers!
