Blank IMAX Dome Theater Fun Facts
- The length of film that feeds through the IMAX projector for a 45-minute Documentary Film about 3 miles long, and can be 10 miles or longer for Hollywood films.
- The rows of seats in the theater are set at a steep angle of 35 degrees, so you always face the screen directly no matter where you sit.
- In order to maximize the image viewing area, IMAX film does not include an embedded soundtrack. SCI’s IMAX Team manually syncs audio with video when building films prior to opening.
- The Blank IMAX Dome Theater was specially designed with three feet of layered insulation to ensure sounds from the nearby train tracks and airport cannot be heard inside.
- The IMAX large-format film is generically called "15/70" which refers to the 15 sprockets, or holes, located on each frame of 70 mm-size film. Prior to the evolution of digital projection in traditional movie theaters, the film used was 35 mm – IMAX film is twice that size!
