Most standard cinema screens are small so the most obvious difference is the large IMAX screens which spans wall-to-wall and floor-to ceiling. The screen is not only wider and higher but also curved as well bringing the audience closer to the screen. Besides, IMAX’s proprietary, state-of-art projection systems provides 60% brightness and 40% more contrast than standard theaters.
In Malaysia, IMAX is available at TGV 1Utama, TGV Sunway Pyramid, TGV Tebrau and TGV Gurney Paragon Mall. Currently, there's an ongoing buy one free one IMAX movie ticket promotion exclusively for Maybank Credit Card members. From now until 31st May 2014, Maybankard members can get one complimentary ticket for purchase of IMAX Standard seat over the counter.
