The AMC Quail Springs Mall 24 in Oklahoma City will soon be getting a new digital IMAX theater. The Oklahoman reports:
The eye-popping effects of Hollywood movies will begin appearing next month on a new IMAX screen set to open in the AMC theater inside Quail Springs Mall.
One of the theater’s 24 auditoriums was converted to an IMAX theater, complete with a larger, curved screen, and the latest sound system and digital projector.
“The idea is that you feel like you’re in the movie, not only with immersive images but with incredibly powerful and immersive sound,” said Jackson Myers, IMAX spokesman.
The auditorium will be operational and showing “Disney’s A Christmas Carol” starting Friday; the grand opening, set for Dec. 18, coincides with the opening of “Avatar.”
