The Orlando entertainment experience just got bigger. An Imax digital-projection screen will be installed in the AMC Altamonte Mall theater in Altamonte Springs as part of an agreement announced this morning between Imax Corp. and AMC Entertainment Inc. that will bring such big screens to 100 U.S. theaters.
The Imax screen at the Altamonte Mall will be installed sometime after next July, the companies said in a news release. It will join local Imax theaters already in place at the Regal Pointe Orlando Stadium on International Drive, Kennedy Space Center Visitors Complex in Brevard County, and the Pepsi Imax Theatre in Daytona Beach.
Company officials said the new Imax theaters will use a digital-projection system that will nearly eliminate the need for film prints. Current IMAX theaters, such as those in Central Florida, use film projection systems.
