We thought all you film fans in the Manchester area (and those willing to hop on a train of course) might like to know all about Odeon's IMAX Film Festival, which kicks off today at their fabulous Printworks site.
Here's the Odeon peeps themselves with all the details of the fest, which runs from the 16th of September through to October 13th...
For a limited time, ODEON Printworks is treating guests to the UK’s first ODEON Film IMAX Festival, offering a series of special screenings including classic IMAX films, animated treats and a selection of short documentaries, all at reduced prices.
The ODEON Printworks IMAX Film Festival provides an opportunity for local film fans to enjoy some of very best IMAX on-screen entertainment, in a truly immersive IMAX cinema experience, in the comfort and ease of their local ODEON cinema.
Guests can enjoy special screenings of IMAX films such as Batman Begins and Inception and short IMAX documentaries such as Hubble 3D and Deep Sea 3D on ODEON Printworks’ big screen until Thursday 13th October.
IMAX’s customised auditorium geometry, which includes precise positioning and shape of the IMAX screen, maximises the field of view and creates the effect of immersing guests within the film itself. In addition, IMAX’s powerful audio system delivers laser-aligned digital sound to envelop the audience in unrivalled sound quality. With Proportionate Point Source loudspeaker technologyTM the audience experiences the optimum balance of sound wherever they are seated in the auditorium.
Steve Gleave, General Manager at ODEON Printworks said: “We are thrilled to be hosting the ODEON IMAX Film Festival at XX and are looking forward to offering our loyal guests a fantastic line up of special IMAX screenings at great value prices. The IMAX screen has been an incredible addition to our local cinema and we have received a fantastic response on the innovative technology – what better way to celebrate your local ODEON IMAX than with an IMAXFestival screening.”The ODEON Film Festival coincides with the opening of ODEON’s twelfth IMAX auditorium located in ODEON Swiss Cottage, which opened to the public on Friday 16th, and celebrates ODEON’s position as the largest operator of IMAX auditoriums in the UK and Europe.
