THE DARK KNIGHT RISES will be presented on IMAX 1570 FILM

Back on the big screen as part of our NOLANATHON in the lead-up to the release of DUNKIRK!Experience it as part of the DARK KNIGHT DOUBLE FEATURE!

Featuring 72 minutes of footage filmed with IMAX cameras, IMAX Melbourne Museum is the only way to experience The Dark Knight Rises. Including IMAX Melbourne, only 102 giant screen IMAX theatres in the world will screen The Dark Knight Rises on the epic scale director Chris Nolan intended...

"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." Christopher Nolan, writer, producer, director The Dark Knight Rises.


The IMAX sequences will expand vertically to fill the full height (23 metres) of the IMAX screen. CLICK HERE for more information about the 'IMAX Difference' and how The Dark Knight Rises makes use of the giant screen format. 

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
