"Indiana Jones and The Raiders of the Lost Ark: The IMAX Experience" Will Be In IMAX Digital Theaters Only

Posted on Wednesday, August 29th, 2012 3:05 PM by Scott Jentsch

IMAX audiences got a treat earlier this summer when The Dark Knight Rises: The IMAX Experience was shown in some film-based IMAX theaters (read the article), which was arguably the best possible picture quality for the movie's presentation.

I was glad to have attended one of those presentations, but the silver screen installed at the movie theater wasn't the best way to see a non-3D movie due to the "shinyness" of the projected image. Director Christopher Nolan was pretty stoked about his movie being shown in IMAX film theaters (some of the sequences were shot using film-based IMAX cameras), and the attention it received got us to thinking that maybe film-based IMAX isn't dead yet.

When the announcement came through that Indiana Jones and The Raiders of the Lost Ark: The IMAX Experience was being released next month in conjunction with the first-ever Blu-ray release of all four movies in the Indiana Jones series, there was some hope that we would get the chance to see Mr. Jones race against the boulder in film-based IMAX glory.

That is not the case, however, as every report that I've seen about the release makes no mention of the availability of a film print, and several have mentioned that this is a digital-only release.

The movie opens in IMAX theaters nationwide on September 7, 2012 and is planned to last only one week, so if you're interested, be sure to visit the Showtimes page for opening day and find a theater near you!

Otherwise, one of our Gift Shop merchants has a great price on the four-movie set right now and you can have it delivered to your home on its release date of September 18, 2012. (Mine is already ordered)

Last spring, my movie theatre Celebration Cinema Crossroads covert one of the big screens into a IMAX theatre. Since then I haven't saw a single movie in that theatre.But that cxhould change when i learn that the new IMAX is running "Raiders of the Lost Ark." I'm looking forward in seeing the movie in the new IMAX theatre. I'm looking forward to it.
