Royal Cinemas, a locally owned theater located in Pooler, Georgia, will soon be host to the world’s tallest IMAX screen.
As detailed in a press release shared on the theater’s website, Royal Cinemas’ new IMAX screen measures 101 feet wide and just over 76 feet tall, making it one of the more unique IMAX screens in the world. The screen will debut next month in an auditorium featuring laser projection, 363 premium recliner seats, and a 12-channel surround sound system.
“IMAX with Laser is set apart by a groundbreaking 4k laser projection system that features a new optical engine, custom designed lenses, and a suite of proprietary technology that delivers brighter images with increase resolution, deeper contrast, and the widest range of colors exclusively to IMAX screens,” Royal Cinemas wrote regarding IMAX’s latest projection technology.
“The custom build installation of new IMAX will also feature several additional moviegoing enhancements including the installation of next generation IMAX precision sound with 12-channel sound technology, which delivers greater dynamic range and precision for the ultimate in audio immersion. This IMAX screen was painted by a special one of a kind in existence designed robotic arm.”
Royal Cinemas’ announcement comes a couple of months after IMAX revealed that the Traumpalast Multiplex located in Leonberg, Germany, would be home to the world’s largest IMAX screen. That screen measures 70 feet tall and 125 feet across, making it wider than a Boeing 737 airliner.
