Finally, Chennai to get an IMAX theatre

Chennai's best known Multiplex - Sathyam Cineplex is going to install IMAX


  • Great! Now we can listen to people talking during a film or their mobile phones in a panoramic-sense.

    "MPX is a new, low-cost version of IMAX that’s designed specifically for use in traditional multiplex and megaplex theaters...maximum screen size for the new theater system will be 70' x 44', and the theaters will hold up to 350 people. This is nearly 10' shorter in height than the 72' x 53' maximum screen size of the IMAX SR (Small Rotor) system, which was introduced in the 1990s as a smaller projector for commercial multiplexes, and less than half as tall as the largest IMAX GT (original, standard) theater screen (117' x 96' screen in at the Sydney IMAX Theater)."

    I took an Indian co-worker to an OMNIMAX in Tampa, Florida, an IMAX with a domed projection ceiling and seats that rocked way back, where you can get dizzy. The IMAX (Small Rotor) here in Rochester, NY is just a slightly bigger screen that shows DMR (Digital Re-mastering), not film shot with IMAX cameras.
