DUNKIRK: 1570 Film Presentation | IMAX Melbourne

DUNKIRK: 1570 Film Presentation

Opens: 20th July
Runtime: To be advised

These screenings of DUNKIRK will be presented on: IMAX 1570 FILM*


Dunkirk opens as hundreds of thousands of British and Allied troops are surrounded by enemy forces. Trapped on the beach with their backs to the sea they face an impossible situation as the enemy closes in.

*It is no surprise that Director Chris Nolan will be shooting key sequences of DUNKIRK with IMAX 1570 Film Cameras. As per THE DARK KNIGHT, THE DARK KNIGHT RISES and INTERSTELLAR, these sequences will expand vertically to fill our massive (23m in height) IMAX screen sheet, meaning audiences will be fully immersed in the movie, as only IMAX can do. Nolan is a huge advocate for using film (instead of digital) cameras to shoot his movies and therefore he is promoting that best way to experience DUNKIRK will be in those theatres projecting film, with the ultimate of those being the traditional giant screen IMAX theatres using the large format 15perf 70mm IMAX Film projectors.

In response to and out of respect for (Sir) Nolan's passionate advocacy for all things film (and in particular large format 15perf 70mm IMAX film), IMAX Melbourne in conjunction with IMAX Corporation will be reinstalling our original IMAX 1570 Film Projector (alongside the new IMAX Dual 4K Laser system) for the release of DUNKIRK in order to provide viewers with the cinema experience Nolan wishes you to have. You're welcome.
