What does IMAX mean?
IMAX stands for Image MAXimum, is a widescreen motion picture film format and a set of proprietary cinema projection standards created by the Canadian company IMAX Corporation. The IMAX format is generically called “15/70” film means each frame is 70 millimeters high and 15 sprocket holes (perforations along the edges of the film) per frame, which is about 10 times bigger than the standard 35-millimeter film format. This is why IMAX has a much better resolution and incredible clarity than the standard movie system.
