IMAX Upgrades!

The largest movie screen in Saskatchewan is set to undergo a digital transformation.

Regina’s Kramer IMAX is undertaking renovations to support a new digital laser projector.

The latest upgrade at the Kramer IMAX will allow the theatre to show a wider selection of Hollywood movies–not solely those shot on IMAX film.

The updated setup will also come with a new 12-channel Dolby Atmos audio system and new full-sized IMAX screen.

The large screen will be delivered rolled up in one piece. When it arrives, the science centre will have to create a hole in the side of the building to the get the screen into the theatre.
