Chances are you already watched Barbie — which now leaves room for you to catch Oppenheimer in all of its glory. Any cinephile out there would agree that experiencing a Christopher Nolan film on IMAX 70mm film is an absolute must. If you don’t believe us, take the directors word for it.
“Oppenheimer’s story is one of the biggest stories imaginable. Our film tries to take you into his experience, and IMAX for me is a portal into a level of emotion that you can’t get from other formats,” stated Christopher Nolan in an interview. “[IMAX] allows you to fully immerse yourself in the story.”
Only 19 theatres in the United States are able to properly accommodate such films. Southern California is home to four of them — and two of them are in L.A. County.
IMAX theatres allow sequences shot with IMAX film cameras to expand vertically and fill the entire screen. These theatres featuring 15 perf / 70mm film, allow scenes to expand up to a 1.43:1 aspect ratio — causing audiences to be fully engulfed into a film and experience a movie like never before.
