The Temple Daily Telegram reports:

After eight months of construction, the new IMAX Theater in Temple Mall is almost ready for its July 23 grand opening. The five-story screen will not only be one of the largest indoor movie screens in Texas, also it will be the only IMAX screen between Austin and Dallas along the Interstate 35 corridor, Premiere Companies CEO Gary Moore said.

“IMAX is very restrictive about where they allow their theaters to be opened,” Moore said. “The Temple area was approved because it’s such a hub.”

Furthering The IMAX Experience®, select scenes in Lucy were captured using IMAX® cameras. Those sequences filmed with the extremely high-resolution cameras will add to the explosive action and scope of the film as seen best in IMAX theaters.

“Luc Besson is one of the most gifted creators of on-screen heroines in cinema history, and Scarlett Johansson is a favorite of IMAX audiences around the world,” said Greg Foster, Senior Executive Vice President, IMAX Corp. and CEO of IMAX Entertainment. “Besson uses IMAX cameras to capture this powerful combination, making Lucy the kind of visceral visual spectacle that our fans are looking for and providing a moviegoing experience only IMAX can deliver.”

“When shooting a movie, as much as possible, I try and remove the wall between the lens and the performers,” said Besson. “Filming key scenes in Lucy with IMAX cameras allowed me to bring the gradual awakening that our heroine is experiencing directly to the audience. I hope that you can feel what she feels and go on this exciting journey with her as she adapts to the incredible changes to her mind and body.”

The IMAX release of Lucy will be digitally re-mastered into the image and sound quality of The IMAX Experience® with proprietary IMAX DMR® (Digital Re-mastering) technology. The crystal-clear images, coupled with IMAX’s customized theatre geometry and powerful digital audio, create a unique environment that will make audiences feel as if they are in the movie.

About Lucy:
From La Femme Nikita and The Professional to The Fifth Element, writer/director Luc Besson has created some of the toughest, most memorable female action heroes in recent cinematic history.
