From the Sacramento Bee:

Esquire IMAX Theatre in downtown Sacramento is marking its 10th anniversary on July 11.

The theater will show the 45-minute film “[Adventures in] Wild California” for free every hour on the hour from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. It is a pictorial tour of the state and appropriate for all ages.

IMAX Corp., based in New York City and Toronto, was founded in 1967. After multi-screen films were well received at EXPO ’67 in Montreal, Canadian filmmakers designed a single projector that works like multiple projectors.

The IMAX projection system provides an “immersive” movie experience using such technologies as 3-D.

There are about 370 IMAX theaters around the world.
