New digital IMAX to open in Destin, Florida

January 25, 2011 – 1:57 pm

The Destin Log reports:

The curtain will rise on the new IMAX Theater at Rave Motion Pictures in Destin Commons on Feb. 4th.

The reveal of the new theater was originally scheduled for Nov. 19 for the much-anticipated movie, “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows.” However, construction was set back for the Destin location due to not having enough internal construction department resources to open six IMAX theaters at once.

“We had to pare it down to five for Harry Potter,” according to Jeremy Devine, vice president of marketing for Rave Motion Pictures.

The new IMAX Theater will be exciting for locals and tourists, according to Devine, who said Destin is a great location.

“The digital IMAX being installed has 2D and 3D capability,” said Devine. “The enhanced projection provides higher image quality.”
