It’s Friday, October 24 and 6:56am in Downtown New Orleans.
The wonders of nature are magnified at <b>Entergy IMAX? Theatre</b>, where larger-than-life adventures explode with the help of the world’s most advanced motion picture technology. Entergy IMAX? Theatre is located next door to Audubon Aquarium of the Americas, and is one of only six in the world with its spectacular flat screen, single projection, IMAX? 3D and high-definition capabilities.
Opened to sell-out crowds in 1995, IMAX? is the finest motion picture system in the world. Visitors are immersed in images of unsurpassed size, clarity and impact. Sounds are enhanced by a specially designed six-channel, multi-speaker sound system. The silver screen in the Theatre is five-and-a-half stories tall. The film used in IMAX? is the largest in the world. It is ten times the size of standard 35-millimeter film. All of this makes for an in-your-face entertainment extravaganza at the IMAX? Theatre.
