IMAX Corporation, Paramount Pictures, and Skydance transformed the State Opera House in Vienna into an IMAX theatre for the Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation. The premiere will take place July 23.
A team of nine worked for three days to install IMAX technology, including:
- An IMAX screen measuring approximately 56 feet by 37 feet. A custom screen frame was designed to stand in front of the proscenium and support the IMAX screen and speakers.
- IMAX’s proprietary dual-projection system. The system – which includes two projectors that weigh approximately 1,300 pounds each – was mounted on a balcony with stepped seats and isolated from the theatre itself.
- A custom sound system. The system was configured and tuned to optimize the playback of the film’s IMAX soundtrack in this unique environment. This included a way to mount two rear speakers in the optimum positions at the back of the theatre.
