JURASSIC WORLD: FALLEN KINGDOM 3D will be presented in IMAX 4K LASER DIGITAL

It’s been four years since theme park and luxury resort Jurassic World was destroyed by dinosaurs out of containment. Isla Nublar now sits abandoned by humans while the surviving dinosaurs fend for themselves in the jungles.

When the island’s dormant volcano begins roaring to life, Owen (Chris Pratt) and Claire (Bryce Dallas Howard) mount a campaign to rescue the remaining dinosaurs from this extinction-level event. Owen is driven to find Blue, his lead raptor who’s still missing in the wild, and Claire has grown a respect for these creatures she now makes her mission. Arriving on the unstable island as lava begins raining down, their expedition uncovers a conspiracy that could return our entire planet to a perilous order not seen since prehistoric times.

With all of the wonder, adventure and thrills synonymous with one of the most popular and successful series in cinema history, this all-new motion-picture event sees the return of favorite characters and dinosaurs—along with new breeds more awe-inspiring and terrifying than ever before. Welcome to Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom.

Everyone’s favorite family of superheroes is back in Incredibles 2 – but this time Helen is in the spotlight, leaving Bob at home with Violet and Dash to navigate the day-to-day heroics of "normal" life. It's a tough transition for everyone, made tougher by the fact that the family is still unaware of baby Jack-Jack's emerging superpowers. When a new villain hatches a brilliant and dangerous plot, the family and Frozone must find a way to work together again — which is easier said than done, even when they're all Incredible.

Deckard (Harrison Ford) is forced by the police Boss (M. Emmet Walsh) to continue his old job as Replicant Hunter. His assignment: eliminate four escaped Replicants from the colonies who have returned to Earth. Before starting the job, Deckard goes to the Tyrell Corporation and he meets Rachel (Sean Young), a Replicant girl he falls in love with.

Perhaps more than any other film, Scott’s iconic sci-fi classic Blade Runner has gripped audiences and inspired passionate and fierce debate. Harrison Ford is exemplary as the world weary detective hunting down intelligent but murderous replicants amidst a neon-lit, rain-spattered future LA.

I actually felt that there were things that were playing better in 3D. I had never felt that before. And if people have access to a theater that has laser projection, it is shockingly better.” JJ Abrams (article: Tiny List of Theatres showing TFA in the best possible format - HERE

PACIFIC RIM: UPRISING 3D will be presented in IMAX 4K LASER DIGITAL

The globe-spanning conflict between otherworldly monsters of mass destruction and the human-piloted super-machines built to vanquish them was only a prelude to the all-out assault on humanity in Pacific Rim: Uprising.

John Boyega (Star Wars: The Force Awakens) stars as the rebellious Jake Pentecost, a once-promising Jaeger pilot whose legendary father gave his life to secure humanity’s victory against the monstrous “Kaiju.”  Jake has since abandoned his training only to become caught up in a criminal underworld.  But when an even more unstoppable threat is unleashed to tear through our cities and bring the world to its knees, he is given one last chance to live up to his father’s legacy by his estranged sister, Mako Mori (Rinko Kikuchi)—who is leading a brave new generation of pilots that have grown up in the shadow of war.  As they seek justice for the fallen, their only hope is to unite together in a global uprising against the forces of extinction.

Jake is joined by gifted rival pilot Lambert (The Fate of the Furious’ Scott Eastwood) and 15-year-old Jaeger hacker Amara (newcomer Cailee Spaeny), as the heroes of the PPDC become the only family he has left.  Rising up to become the most powerful defense force to ever walk the earth, they will set course for a spectacular all-new adventure on a towering scale.

TOMB RAIDER 3D will be presented in IMAX 4K LASER DIGITAL

Lara Croft is the fiercely independent daughter of an eccentric adventurer who vanished when she was scarcely a teen. Now a young woman of 21 without any real focus or purpose, Lara navigates the chaotic streets of trendy East London as a bike courier, barely making the rent, and takes college courses, rarely making it to class. Determined to forge her own path, she refuses to take the reins of her father’s global empire just as staunchly as she rejects the idea that he’s truly gone. Advised to face the facts and move forward after seven years without him, even Lara can’t understand what drives her to finally solve the puzzle of his mysterious death.

Going explicitly against his final wishes, she leaves everything she knows behind in search of her dad’s last-known destination: a fabled tomb on a mythical island that might be somewhere off the coast of Japan. But her mission will not be an easy one; just reaching the island will be extremely treacherous. Suddenly, the stakes couldn’t be higher for Lara, who—against the odds and armed with only her sharp mind, blind faith and inherently stubborn spirit—must learn to push herself beyond her limits as she journeys into the unknown. If she survives this perilous adventure, it could be the making of her, earning her the name tomb raider.

The IMAX release of Tomb Raider will be digitally re-mastered into the image and sound quality An IMAX 3D Experience® with proprietary IMAX DMR® (Digital Re-mastering) technology.

But when a powerful old enemy reappears, T’Challa’s mettle as king—and Black Panther—is tested when he is drawn into a formidable conflict that puts the fate of Wakanda and the entire world at risk.

AMAZON ADVENTURE 3D will be presented in IMAX 4K LASER DIGITAL

Amazon Adventure tells the epic, true story of explorer Henry Bates' fascinating 11 year journey through the visually stunning and biodiverse Amazon rainforest as a young man who risks his life for science in the 1850’s.

As in any great detective story, audiences will experience, in immersive IMAX®, the compelling clues Bates unearths in his major discovery of the phenomenon of mimicry, whereby certain animals adopt the look of others that helps them deceive predators and gain an advantage to survive.

Little known to the public, Bates made other crucial contributions to biology: identifying 8,000 species new to science and most importantly, putting forth the first ever case for the creation of a new species, which Charles Darwin called the “beautiful proof” for natural selection.

Audiences will be wowed by the mind-boggling examples of camouflage and mimicry and inspired by Bates’ endless curiosity and determination to explore the wilds of nature from the time he was a young boy.

As in SK’s award winning film Flight of the Butterflies, nature is extraordinary and science is adventure, just waiting to be discovered.

VOYAGE OF TIME: THE IMAX EXPERIENCE will be presented in IMAX 4K LASER DIGITAL

EXCLUSIVELY IN IMAX!

Voyage of Time: The IMAX Experience is a one-of-a-kind celebration of life and the grand history of the cosmos, transporting audiences into a vast yet up close and personal journey that spans the eons from Big Bang to the dinosaur age to our present human world… and beyond. A labor of love from one of American cinema's most acclaimed and visually exciting filmmakers, Terrence Malick (The Thin Red Line, The Tree of Life), Voyage of Time represents the filmmaker's first foray into documentary storytelling. The film's panorama of awe-inspiring images will take you into the heart of monumental events never witnessed — from the birth of the stars and galaxies to the explosion of diverse life-forms on planet earth, including humankind — in immersive new ways that only IMAX can deliver.

This is a cosmic experience — a hymn to the glories of nature, life and scientific discovery — in which all the elements come together to form Malick's most original film to date.

Voyage of Time: The IMAX Experience, a 45-minute, giant-screen adventure narrated by Brad Pitt, which immerses audiences directly into the story of the universe and life itself, will be shown exclusively at IMAX Melbourne.

"This is big-time, old-school filmmaking. Dunkirk isn't overdone. It's simply done epically." - Stephen Whitty, New York Daily News

"Dunkirk is a stone cold masterpiece. It's a stunningly immersive survival film told in 106 thrillingly realized minutes." - Lindsay Bahr, Associated Press

In May 1940, Germany advanced into France, trapping Allied troops on the beaches of Dunkirk. With their backs to the sea they face an impossible situation as the enemy closes in. Under air and ground cover from British and French forces, troops were slowly and methodically evacuated from the beach using every serviceable naval and civilian vessel that could be found. At the end of this heroic mission, 330,000 French, British, Belgian and Dutch soldiers were safely evacuated.

*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.

Now that Dom and Letty are on their honeymoon and Brian and Mia have retired from the game—and the rest of the crew has been exonerated—the globetrotting team has found a semblance of a normal life. But when a mysterious woman (Oscar® winner Charlize Theron) seduces Dom into the world of crime he can’t seem to escape and a betrayal of those closest to him, they will face trials that will test them as never before.

From the shores of Cuba and the streets of New York City to the icy plains off the arctic Barents Sea, our elite force will crisscross the globe to stop an anarchist from unleashing chaos on the world’s stage…and to bring home the man who made them a family.

For The Fate of the Furious, Vin Diesel is joined by a returning all-star cast that includes Dwayne Johnson, Jason Statham, Michelle Rodriguez, Tyrese Gibson, Chris “Ludacris” Bridges, Nathalie Emmanuel, Elsa Pataky and Kurt Russell.

LOGAN will be presented in IMAX 2D and discounted IMAX 2D pricing applies.

In the near future the mutant population has shrunk significantly and the X-Men have disbanded. Logan, whose power to self-heal is dwindling, has surrendered himself to alcohol and now earns a living as a chauffeur, while taking care of the old and ailing Professor X.

When a young girl possessing an extraordinary fighting prowess appears, being pursued by sinister figures working for a powerful corporation, it seems that her DNA may contain the secret that connects her to Logan.

In this third cinematic outing featuring the Marvel comic book character Wolverine we see the superheroes beset by everyday problems. They are aging, ailing and struggling to survive financially. A decrepit Logan is forced to ask himself if he can or even wants to put his remaining powers to good use. It would appear that in the near-future, the times in which they were able to put the world to rights with razor sharp claws and telepathic powers are now over

The IMAX release of Logan will be digitally re-mastered into the image and sound quality of The IMAX 2D Experience with proprietary IMAX DMR® (Digital Re-mastering) technology.

LIVING IN THE AGE OF AIRPLANES will be presented in IMAX 4K LASER DIGITAL

EXPERIENCE A VISUAL JOURNEY ABOUT HOW FAR WE'VE COME AND HOW FAST WE GOT HERE.

The airplane has changed our world, but do we really understand exactly how much? LIVING IN THE AGE OF AIRPLANES reminds us how profoundly this amazing invention has changed the way we do just about everything.  It also renews our appreciation for the airplane and stunningly conveys the wonder and grandeur of flying.
 
Not that long ago, traveling between continents was a migration. Now, on any given day, 100,000 flights transport people and products between any two points on Earth in a matter of hours. Indeed, the airplane may be the closest thing we have to a time machine.

Filmed in 18 countries across all 7 continents, the film explores the countless ways the airplane affects our lives (even when we don’t fly). With a fascinating take on history, breathtaking visuals, soaring music, and a truly unique perspective, LIVING IN THE AGE OF AIRPLANES shows the airplane in a fresh light as it takes audiences on a wondrous trip around the globe.
 
LIVING IN THE AGE OF AIRPLANES was produced and directed by Brian J. Terwilliger (One Six Right), is narrated by Harrison Ford, and features an original score by Academy Award® winning composer James Horner (Avatar, Titanic).

IMAX Child Policy

Q:           What age is considered a child if I want to purchase a ‘Child’ ticket?

A:           The age for paid child tickets is 3-15 years inclusive.

Children under the age of 3 do not require a ticket but will be required to sit on an adult’s lap throughout the film; however we do not encourage this as the large image, volume and duration of our films is often overwhelming for children of this age. Before you decide to bring a child under the age of 3 years into an IMAX movie, please consider the enjoyment of all customers and the suitability of the experience for your child.

Q:           Should I bring a baby or small child to my movie?

A:           We ask that for the enjoyment of other guests that babies and children 5 and under do not attend screenings of films classified as M, MA15+ (Mature Accompanied) or R (Restricted).

The large scale of the IMAX experience and the duration of films are likely to overstimulate and unsettle babies and small children. For this reason, we strongly recommend that children aged 5 and under do not attend screenings of films designed for adult audiences. Our Front of House staff have been trained to help our customers with small children decide whether the film they are about to see is appropriate for younger children. Please note that if you decide to enter the film with your children, IMAX staff may ask you to sit close to the aisles to allow you to leave without impacting the enjoyment of other customers.

If any cinema patron becomes disruptive and this impacts the enjoyment of other customers, they will be asked to leave the theatre.

IMAX Premium Seating

Please note that IMAX Premium seating is not suitable for children aged 12yrs and under and child tickets are not available.

MUSEUM ALIVE 3D will be presented in IMAX 4K LASER DIGITAL

EXCLUSIVELY IN IMAX!

David Attenborough takes us on a nocturnal adventure through London’s famous Natural History Museum. When the last visitor leaves, the doors are locked and night falls, and the world’s favourite naturalist roams the museum halls and corridors, encountering extinct creatures that, through the wonder of cutting edge 3D CGI are brought to life right in front of our eyes. He dodges a sabre-toothed cat and a fearsome bird of prey, he watches, awe-struck, as a spinner dolphin and an ancient ichthyosaur circle the Central Hall, and laughs as a dodo pecks his leg after food. In the magnificent finale, he feeds a hungry Diplodocus by hand from the top balcony. 


All this happens thanks to a unique collaboration between scientists, Natural History Museum curators and the world’s leading animation studios. The result is spectacular, fun and enlightening.

The Natural History Museum is particularly special for Attenborough: ‘I’ve been coming here since I was a boy of eight. It is one of the holiest of holies – one of the great places for natural history.... coming here was quite a journey, each time was astonishing – just looking at cases full of electric blue butterflies is enough to impress a child.’ His favourite specimens from the museum include some familiar faces – the dodo and the Diplodocus, for instance - but others, such as the fearsome bird of prey the Haast eagle, are new to the public eye, tucked away in the Museum’s store rooms. Attenborough delves into the stories and myths surrounding the discovery and acquisition of these astonishing creatures. ‘Each one,’ he says, ‘has its own fascinating story’.

Urged to abandon the only home he’s ever known, Mowgli embarks on a captivating journey of self-discovery, guided by panther-turned-stern mentor Bagheera, and the free-spirited bear Baloo.

After another international incident involving the Avengers results in collateral damage, political pressure mounts to install a system of accountability and a governing body to determine when to enlist the services of the team. The new status quo fractures the Avengers, resulting in two camps — one led by Steve Rogers and his desire for the Avengers to remain free to defend humanity without government interference, and the other following Tony Stark's surprising decision to support government oversight and accountability.

*Captain America: Civil War will be the first film to use the new high resolution IMAX ALEXA digital camera.  Exclusive to IMAX Theatres the 17min 'airport battle scene' of Captain America: Civil War will expand vertically from an aspect ratio of 2.39:1 to 1.9:1 (meaning the image height will increase from approx. 13m to 17m) and combine with the significant increase in resolution to further immerse audiences in the action.

Directors Joe & Anthony Russo - 'That sequence we figured deserved that scope, that scale of frame... We also have a lot of characters who fly in that sequence -- there's a lot of vertical movement in that sequence -- and so the added dimension of that IMAX frame really helps us sell the action on that axis.'

Join us on a thrilling ride, as we spin back in time to an extraordinary prehistoric world: Alaska in the Cretaceous period, 70 million years ago – the last great flourish of the dinosaur era. BBC Earth invites you to come on a journey through the seasons, and experience a year in the life of dinosaurs fighting, feeding, migrating, playing and hunting.

With the most ambitious CGI visuals, this film reveals the story behind the lives of the dinosaurs and the challenges they faced in a constant battle of survival.

Spring signals new life as many species of dinosaurs start to lay eggs, rearing the hatchlings to ensure a chance of survival. But as the young grow through summer, they are vulnerable to predators like the Troodon. Cool autumn months spur the dinosaurs to migrate, but not without risk from natural catastrophes and packs of Gorgonsaurs hunting. In winter, temperatures drop and the sun ceases to rise. As spring approaches, the mature dinosaurs go in search of a mate. For the Pachyrhinosaur, scientists believe the frill on its head could help to attract a mate or do battle with a contender. Once mated, the pair will migrate back to their nesting ground to start their own family.

"Mad Max: Fury Road" is a post-apocalyptic action story set in the furthest reaches of our planet, in a stark desert landscape where humanity is broken, and most everyone is crazed fighting for the necessities of life.

Within this world of fire and blood exist two rebels on the run who just might be able to restore order… There's Max (played by Tom Hardy from "The Dark Knight Rises"), a man of action and a man of few words, who seeks peace of mind following the loss of his wife and child in the aftermath of the chaos. And… Furiosa (played by Charlize Theron from "Prometheus"), a woman of action and a woman who believes her path to survival may be achieved if she can make it across the desert back to her childhood homeland.

Haunted by his turbulent past, Max believes the best way to survive is to wander alone.  Nevertheless, he becomes swept up with a group fleeing across the Wasteland in a War Rig driven by an elite Imperator, Furiosa.  They are escaping a Citadel tyrannised by the Immortan Joe, from whom something irreplaceable has been taken.  Enraged, the Warlord marshals all his gangs and pursues the rebels ruthlessly in the high-octane Road War that follows.

Rocky Mountain Express propels audiences on a steam train journey through the breathtaking vistas of the Canadian Rockies and highlights the adventure of building a nearly impossible transcontinental railway.
 
Recruited to realize this venture—one of the greatest engineering feats of all time—were engineers and laborers from around the world. The challenge was immense, and the costs were high - almost every mile of track claimed its share of human life...
 
The film weaves together spectacular IMAX aerial cinematography, archival photographs and maps, and the potent energy and rhythms of a live steam locomotive to immerse audiences in this remarkable story from the age of steam.

The Canadian Pacific Railway started in the mid-nineteenth Century as a dream: a ribbon of steel that would stretch across the North American continent, through thousands of miles of sparsely inhabited wilderness and then, through three mountain ranges to reach a remote colonial outpost on the Pacific coast - Read More

IMAX Melbourne Temporary Closure Announcement:

From Monday 22nd August through to Wednesday 7th September 2016, IMAX Melbourne will be closed to facilitate the installation and painting of a new IMAX screen sheet in the theatre.

During the two week closure period the current screen will be removed and the theatre entrance will be partly dismantled to uncover the hidden access doors that allow the new screen, paint rig and silver paint to be craned directly into the screen pit at the bottom of the theatre. Once these materials are safely in the theatre, a team of riggers will hoist the new screen into place and secure it to the top, each side and bottom of the screen frame. The screen is then correctly tensioned to ensure there are no creases or wrinkles. The paint rig is then erected, with scaffolding allowing the paint head to transverse the full width (32m) and height (23m) of the massive screen. Once set up the painting process can begin. Painting will take close to one full week, and during this time Screen Paint professionals (specialists flown in from overseas) oversee the equipment and ensure the theatre environment is strictly maintained to provide an optimum curing process.

The new screen will provide a more enhanced viewing experience and furthers our commitment to providing Melbourne with what is simply an unrivalled premium cinema experience.

IMAX Melbourne will reopen on Thursday 8th September  2016 with the release of three new titles:

  1. A BEAUTIFUL PLANET 3D
  2. SULLY
  3. THE SECRET LIFE OF PETS 3D

We look forward to welcoming you back when we re-open.

Pandas 3D: The Journey Home

HURRY LAST DAYS!

After thriving for 8 million years in the high bamboo forests of mountainous western China, it took only a few centuries of human expansion to push the giant panda to the brink of extinction. Yet today, with pandas numbering less than 1,600, there is new hope for the species—thanks to a massive effort by the Chinese government to turn the tide. 


Pandas 3D: The Journey Home is a ground-breaking natural-history film that captures for the first time the highly endangered pandas breeding at the Bifengxia Panda Base, and being prepared for release back into the wild at Wolong National Nature Reserve, both in the People’s Republic of China.

The filmmakers were given unrivalled access to the Wolong National Nature Reserve with the support of the Chinese Wildlife Conservation Association and the China Conservation and Research Centre for the Giant Panda. The film invites audiences to witness the birth, nursery care and teaching of panda cubs—all part of an extraordinary effort to save the panda in the wild.

Pandas 3D: The Journey Home follows the pandas at what could be a make-or-break milestone in their history and in the history of conservation itself. After decades of successful captive breeding, the reserve has hit its target number of 300 giant pandas and now must tackle the challenge of reintroducing breeding populations of the species to the wild.

An action-packed, epic space adventure, Marvel's “Guardians of the Galaxy” expands the Marvel Cinematic Universe into the cosmos, where brash adventurer Peter Quill finds himself the object of an unrelenting bounty hunt after stealing a mysterious orb coveted by Ronan, a powerful villain with ambitions that threaten the entire universe. To evade the ever-persistent Ronan, Quill is forced into an uneasy truce with a quartet of disparate misfits—Rocket, a gun-toting raccoon, Groot, a tree-like humanoid, the deadly and enigmatic Gamora and the revenge-driven Drax the Destroyer. But when Quill discovers the true power of the orb and the menace it poses to the cosmos, he must do his best to rally his ragtag rivals for a last, desperate stand—with the galaxy's fate in the balance.

*Select key sequences will be presented in a 1.9:1 aspect ratio (the ratio of the image width to the image height) rather than the 2.40:1 for the conventional release. This aspect ratio is optimised to take advantage of the taller IMAX screen (with the on-screen image height expanding from approx. 11m to 15m) - offering moviegoers 26% more of the image than standard cinemas.

Why Choose IMAX? | IMAX Melbourne

Why Choose IMAX? | IMAX Melbourne

Why Choose IMAX?

The IMAX Experience differs significantly from watching a movie in a normal multiplex cinema, here are 6 x main reasons why you should experience a movie at IMAX Melbourne:

  1. Laser Projection Technology: IMAX Melbourne boasts the world's most technologically advanced and powerful projection system in the world - IMAX LASER, which as the name suggests uses a high-powered laser light engine (rather than traditional xenon lamps) in each of its twin 4K proprietary digital projectors to light the huge screen sheet (see point 2!); thus providing audiences with the sharpest, brightest, clearest and most vivid on screen images ever - watch the video on this page or read more HERE

  2. Screen Size: Bigger is most definitely better when it comes to experiencing the latest movie blockbusters, and there's no screen bigger than ours! IMAX Melbourne hosts the world’s largest cinema screen (measuring 32m in width by 23m in height) and it's this unrivaled scale allows viewers to be transported right into the action.

  3. Theatre Geometry:  It’s not just the large screen that makes a difference, it’s the shape of the auditorium and how the seats are placed.  Many movie auditoriums are long and narrow, to get the most people in, with the screen way off at the far end.  The distinctive shape of an IMAX theatre is designed to bring the audience not only closer to the screen, but better-positioned in relation to it.  The result is an image that’s wider and higher than your field of view, giving you the feeling you’re part of the action – not just watching it.

  4. Digital Remastering: As sensational as the image out of our super-star 'bells & whistles' projector is, it can be limited by the quality of the content going into it. The secret sauce in the IMAX mix is DMR – or Digital Re-mastering – a transformative proprietary process that turns an already powerful movie into a breathtaking IMAX blockbuster with unparalleled image and sound quality. IMAX spends months on location and in the editing room with the director and technical teams of each film – meticulously adjusting the saturation, contrast, brightness and hundreds of details in virtually every frame in order to present the movie at its best.

  5. IMAX Sound:  A surprisingly large part of the IMAX experience is the sound.  That’s what makes an IMAX movie visceral. You don’t just see a movie in IMAX, you feel it in your bones. One reason is the sheer power of the custom, patented fully immersive 12.1 channel 15,000 watt digital speaker system in an IMAX theatre. Another is the wider frequency response – which means higher highs and lows so low they’re as much vibrations as sounds. The customised theatre geometry also plays its part here as sound is also affected by the room in which the listener sits and as such the theatre is designed as much around the sound output as the on-screen visuals.

  6. IMAX 3D: The difference between IMAX 3D and regular 3D is as vast as the difference between an IMAX movie and an ordinary one.  3D requires two images – one for the left eye and one for the right eye – to be projected onto the screen at the same time. Whereas most multiplex cinemas utilise one projector to do this, alternating the projection of each eye’s image, IMAX uses two projectors – one dedicated to each eye, ensuring unsurpassed brightness and clarity. Almost all 3D cinemas in multiplexes are compromised in their design, as they are retrofitted 2D cinemas.  IMAX Melbourne was designed and purpose built as a 3D theatre from the outset, ensuring only the highest quality 3D experience no matter where you’re seated.

IMAX offers what is simply the finest movie going experience on offer - it's the only choice that discerning movie goers need to make. But please don't take our word for it, come and experience it for yourself, we hope to see you here soon!

Island of Lemurs: Madagascar 3D

Island of Lemurs: Madagascar 3D will be presented in IMAX 4K LASER DIGITAL

Academy Award® winner Morgan Freeman narrates the IMAX 3D® documentary Island of Lemurs: Madagascar, the incredible true story of nature’s greatest explorers—lemurs.

Captured with IMAX® 3D cameras, Island of Lemurs: Madagascar takes audiences on a spectacular journey to the remote and wondrous world of Madagascar. Lemurs arrived in Madagascar as castaways millions of years ago and evolved into hundreds of diverse species but are now highly endangered. Join trailblazing scientist Dr. Patricia Wright on her lifelong mission to help these strange and adorable creatures survive in the modern world.

The film reunites Freeman with Drew Fellman, who also wrote and produced the 2011 IMAX 3D documentary Born to Be Wild 3D, and director David Douglas, who served as director of photography on that film.

Unseen World 3D will be presented in IMAX 4K LASER DIGITAL and is exempt from Classification*

Experience events that unfold too slowly for human perception; "see” the beauty, drama, and even humour of phenomena that occur in the flash of a microsecond; enter a microscopic world once reserved for scientists, but now made accessible to the rest of us; and begin to understand that what we actually see is only a fraction of what there is to see on Earth.

High-speed and time-lapse photography, electron microscopy, and nanotechnology are just a few of the advancements that allow us to see a universe of things, events, creatures, and processes we never even knew existed. These technologies give us new “superpowers” to see beyond what's in front of us.

Visually stunning and rooted in cutting-edge research, Unseen World 3D will leave audiences in thrall as they begin to understand the enormity of the world they can’t see—a world that exists in the air they breathe, on their bodies, and in all of the events that occur around them minute by minute and nanosecond by nanosecond. And with this understanding comes a new appreciation of the wonder and possibilities of science.

Take your students on the ultimate field trip... to the International Space Station.    

Space Station 3D is an exciting and memorable learning experience that will inspire and captivate students of all ages. Join astronauts as they travel through space to their new home on the ISS, learn how the space station was built, what daily life is like on board, and how scientific study in outer space can address concerns for our life and environment here on earth. 

Using advanced 3D-technology, the film depicts the greatest engineering happening since a man landed on the Moon in 1969. Amongst these is the on-orbit assembly of the International Space Station as it travels 220 miles above the Earth at the speed of 17,500 mph. The film also has included sequences that portray the force of a rocket launch, as well as a look into the depths of space. Students will experience life in zero gravity, and accompany the astronauts on a spacewalk.

TWO SESSIONS ONLY! (Or see it as a double-header with INTERSTELLAR!)

Academy Award® winners Sandra Bullock and George Clooney star in “Gravity,” a heart-pounding thriller that pulls you into the infinite and unforgiving realm of deep space.  The film was directed by Oscar® nominee Alfonso Cuarón (“Children of Men”). Bullock plays Dr. Ryan Stone, a brilliant medical engineer on her first shuttle mission, with veteran astronaut Matt Kowalsky (Clooney) in command of his last flight before retiring.  But on a seemingly routine spacewalk, disaster strikes.  The shuttle is destroyed, leaving Stone and Kowalsky completely alone—tethered to nothing but each other and spiraling out into the blackness.

The deafening silence tells them they have lost any link to Earth…and any chance for rescue.  As fear turns to panic, every gulp of air eats away at what little oxygen is left. But the only way home may be to go further out into the terrifying expanse of space.

The IMAX release of Gravity will be digitally re-mastered into the image and sound quality of The IMAX 3D Experience® with proprietary IMAX DMR® (Digital Re-mastering) technology. The crystal-clear images coupled with IMAX's customised theatre geometry and powerful digital audio create a unique environment that will immerse audiences within the movie.

Titans of the Ice Age 3D

Rated: PG
Mild themes
Runtime: 45 minutes

Titans of the Ice Age 3D transports viewers to the beautiful and otherworldy frozen landscapes of North America, Europe and Asia ten thousand years before modern civilization. 

Dazzling computer-generated imagery brings this mysterious era to life - from saber-toothed cats and cave bears to dire wolves and woolly mammoths - giants both feared and hunted by prehistoric humans.  

The Ice Age marks a dynamic chapter in the development of the human spirit, a great test of survival, a "trial by ice" that would compel our ancestors to seek understanding and meaning in nature.  These inventions and discoveries - art, language, clothing, the taming of fire - born of the Pleistocene, were tools that defined and civilized the human species.  

Ironically, our spirit of ingenuity and survival instincts would ultimately provide us with the power and knowledge to alter the very forces of nature that once shaped our existence.  And the consequences, from species devastation to global warming, have become the great challenges in the modern era.  

The Ice Age takes a thoughtful look at the relationships between the Earth, her resources and inhabitants, and our role in a changing world.  As the planet now warms by our own hand, jeopardizing thousands of species, how can we tap into the same great human capacity for innovation to solve today's emerging threats?

With his remastering of the epic into a state-of-the-art 3D format, Spielberg introduces the three-time Academy Award® winning blockbuster to a new generation of moviegoers and allows longtime fans to experience the world he envisioned in a way that was unimaginable during the film’s original release.

Jurassic Park 3D follows two dinosaur experts - Dr. Alan Grant and Dr. Ellie Sattler - as they are invited by eccentric millionaire John Hammond to preview his new amusement park on an island off Costa Rica. By cloning DNA harvested from pre-historic insects, Hammond has been able to create living dinosaurs for his new Jurassic Park, an immense animal preserve housing real brachiosaurs, dilophosaurs, triceratops, velociraptors, and a Tyrannosaurus Rex. 

Accompanied by cynical scientist Ian Malcolm, who is obsessed with chaos theory, and Hammond's two grandchildren, they are sent on a tour through Hammond's new resort in computer controlled touring cars. But as a tropical storm hits the island, knocking out the power supply, and an unscrupulous employee sabotages the system so that he can smuggle dinosaur embryos out of the park, the dinosaurs start to rage out of control.  Grant then has to bring Hammond's grandchildren back to safety as the group is pursued by the gigantic, prehistoric man-eating beasts.

Returns for March Monster Movie Mayhem! (at mini-monster prices) - Select Limited Screenings from Saturday March 22nd!

IMAX moviegoers will see up to 26% more of the image on screen in Pacific Rim! The IMAX presentation of Pacific Rim will be specially formatted to feature a larger aspect ratio (the ratio of the image width to the image height) than the conventional release for the entirety of the film. This aspect ratio (1.90:1 presentation vs. a 2.40:1 presentation), which is optimised to take advantage of the IMAX screen, will allow you to see more of the image and result in a full panorama of the action – further immersing you into the vast scale and scope of the film and providing an up-close, you-are-there experience that can’t be missed.

When legions of monstrous creatures, known as Kaiju, started rising from the sea, a war began that would take millions of lives and consume humanity’s resources for years on end. To combat the giant Kaiju, a special type of weapon was devised: massive robots, called Jaegers, controlled simultaneously by two pilots whose minds are locked in a neural bridge.

But even the Jaegers proved almost defenceless in the face of the relentless Kaiju.  On the verge of defeat, the forces defending mankind have no choice but to turn to two unlikely heroes—a washed up former pilot (Charlie Hunnam) and an untested trainee (Rinko Kikuchi)—who are teamed to drive a legendary but seemingly obsolete Jaeger from the past. Together, they stand as mankind’s last hope against the mounting apocalypse.

The IMAX release of Pacific Rim will be digitally re-mastered into the image and sound quality of The IMAX Experience® with proprietary IMAX DMR® (Digital Re-mastering) technology. The crystal-clear images coupled with IMAX's customised theatre geometry and powerful digital audio create a unique environment that will immerse audiences within the movie.

Fly across iridescent tropical reefs, brush through a cloud of a million jellyfish, visit an alien world where the closer you look, the more you see. Shot on location in Palau, Vancouver Island, French Polynesia, Mexico, and The Bahamas, The Last Reef 3D takes us on a global journey to explore our connection with the ocean’s complex, parallel worlds. New underwater 3D technology takes us into the heart of the reef, revealing a habitat more diverse and more colorful than you ever imagined!

The Last Reef 3D showcases the magnificence of coral reefs around the world, whilst highlighting the first hand effects of agriculture and industry on our life sustaining oceans.We think of reefs as exotic, distant places with little or no connection to our everyday world. Yet every reef is a living city beneath the sea with a parallel existence to ours, distant yet undeniably connected to our every day lives.

Reefs are hotspots of biodiversity as vital to life on earth as the rain-forests. They have been shaping our shorelines, literally forming islands and mountains, for millions of years.  With incredible capacity to regenerate, the fossil record shows that given time they have recovered from all of earth’s major extinction events.  Even reefs pulverised by atomic blasts at Bikini Atoll have regenerated.

Yet within our lifetime, reefs have come to face their greatest threat. With 300 tons of anthropogenic carbon dioxide dissolving into the sea every second, the coral, shell and bone that makes up the worlds reefs are beginning to crumble as our oceans become more acidic.  This ocean acidification is causing reefs to vanish at an alarming rate; 90% of Caribbean reefs have already disappeared with scientists now predicting all the world’s coral reefs could be gone within our lifetime...

"Having shot almost half the picture with large-format IMAX film cameras, it is very important to me that we show 'The Dark Knight Rises' in the IMAX film format wherever possible. Audiences everywhere should be assured that every presentation of the film will be of the highest standard—having benefited from the clarity and depth IMAX cameras offer. However, these 102 screens will showcase the original IMAX film photography in its optimum form, and I hope anyone who has an opportunity to experience the film in these theatres will seek it out."

In the years following Batman's absence, Gotham City experiences a time of peace thanks to Harvey Dent's inspiration and good reputation.  However, a new threat has risen with plans to destroy Gotham City from within and taint the good name of Harvey Dent's memory, in the form of the bone crushing, skull cracking, spine ripping master villain ‘Bane’.

When the Gotham police force fails to capture this new terrorist, Commissioner Gordon seeks for Batman to return, and Bruce Wayne must once again become the caped crusader to take on the ultimate villain.

“(Bane is) He’s brutal. Brutal. He’s a big dude who’s incredibly clinical, in the fact that he has a result-based and oriented fighting style. It’s not about fighting. It’s about carnage. The style is heavy-handed, heavy-footed, it’s nasty. Anything from small-joint manipulation to crushing skulls, crushing rib cages, stamping on shins and knees and necks and collarbones and snapping heads off and tearing his fists through chests, ripping out spinal columns. He is a terrorist mentality as well as in brutal action.” Tom Hardy, Empire Magazine, 2011

Tornado Alley 3D

"Tornado Alley is without question the most anticipated giant screen release in the last 10 years". Davy Duszynski, Vice President, Cincinnati Museum Center.

Join Storm Chasers' (Discovery Channel) star Sean Casey and the researchers of VORTEX 2, in the most ambitious effort ever made to understand the origins and evolution of tornadoes on this heart-pounding science adventure. Armed with an IMAX camera, a fleet of customized vehicles designed to withstand gale force winds, torrential rains and unrelenting hail, along with an arsenal of the most advanced weather measurement instruments ever created the stars of Tornado Alley take audiences on a thrilling quest to experience a tornado’s destructive power at point blank range.

Filmmaker Sean Casey’s personal quest to capture the birth of a tornado with an IMAX camera takes viewers on a breathtaking journey into the heart of the storm. Traversing the “severe weather capital of the world,” Tornado Alley documents two unprecedented missions seeking to encounter one of Earth’s most awe-inspiring events.  A team of equally driven scientists, the VORTEX2 researchers, experience the relentless strength of nature’s elemental forces as they literally surround tornadoes and the supercell storms that form them, gathering the most comprehensive severe weather data ever collected. This science adventure reveals the beauty and the power of some of our planet’s most extreme—and least understood—weather phenomena.

Experience the adrenaline and the science of nature’s most dramatic phenomena on the giant IMAX screen.

Runtime: 45 minutes

Egypt: Secrets of the Mummies allows audiences to explore the mysterious world of ancient Egypt through the fabric of its ancient mummies and monuments. Part historic journey and part scientific adventure the key historical thread of this movie is the re-enactment of one of the great discoveries in modern history: the late 19th century find of a cache of forty mummies, including twelve Kings of Egypt, among them, the legendary Ramses the Great.

Witness the grandeur and spectacle of ancient Egypt, meeting both Ramses and the love of his life, Queen Nefertari and observe one of the great ancient marvels of the world, Abu Simbel, being built. See how modern day analysis of mummies and their DNA is not only increasing our understanding of ancient Egypt, but providing potentially valuable clues to our future as well. This is a real life Indiana Jones adventure of grave robbers and hidden treasure interwoven with the tale of the evolution of science.

Back on the big screen as part of the NOLANATHON IMAX FILM FESTIVAL!

Acclaimed filmmaker Christopher Nolan (Director: The Dark Knight) directs an international cast in an original sci-fi actioner that travels around the globe and into the intimate and infinite world of dreams. 

Dom Cobb (Leonardo DiCaprio) is a skilled thief, the absolute best in the dangerous art of extraction: stealing valuable secrets from deep within the subconscious during the dream state when the mind is at its most vulnerable. Cobb's rare ability has made him a coveted player in this treacherous new world of corporate espionage, but it has also made him an international fugitive and cost him everything he has ever loved. 

Now Cobb is being offered a chance at redemption; one last job could give him his life back but only if he can accomplish the impossible - inception. Instead of the perfect heist, Cobb and his team of specialists have to pull off the reverse; their task is not to steal an idea but to plant one. If they succeed, it could be the perfect crime. But no amount of careful planning or expertise can prepare the team for the dangerous enemy that seems to predict their every move; an enemy that only Cobb could have seen coming.

"The images deserve to be untarnished by much explanation - you should see them for yourself and on the biggest screen you can - it's coming to IMAX - book now" Empire Magazine

"Inception is a masterpiece....Nolan has created a massive, immersive and complete visual experience. I actually can't wait to see this movie again but (this time) in IMAX, to be completely enveloped in the universe that Nolan has created" Chud.com
