Forty-five hundred times larger than the average television screen, eight storeys higher than any single swelling, three dimensions and fifteen thousands Watts of light shining from a film projector so bright it would be spotted from earth if it was shone on the moon.
Not to mention the sixteen amplifiers and forty-four speakers for enormous uncompressed sound. It's no surprise that with all these audio-visual state of the art qualities Imax trades off the slogan 'See More, Hear More, Feel More'; because you literally see more, hear more and feel as though its happening to you.
