DUNKIRK will be presented on: Yet to be confirmed*
SELECT FOOTAGE SHOT WITH IMAX CAMERAS!
In 1940, British forces embark on a mission to evacuate Allied troops from Dunkirk, France.
*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.
IMAX Melbourne installed the latest generation IMAX LASER projection system in September 2015, removing the original IMAX 1570 Film Projector that had served us so well since the theatre opened in 1998. The 1570 Film Projector is currently in dry-storage and we are currently assessing the feasibility of re-installing the Film system for an exclusive IMAX 1570 Film run of DUNKIRK when it opens in July 2017.
