Avatar arrives at Regina's IMAX Theatre

Avatar, the Oscar-nominated film that took movie technology to the next level, is now coming to the Saskatchewan Science Centre’s IMAX Theatre in 3D.

The movie by Canadian Director James Cameron will be screened at the Science Centre until early January. It will be projected on two reels of special 70 millimetre IMAX film. Each film reel weighs over 800 lbs and is well over 10 miles long.

Sandra Baumgartner from the Saskatchewan Science Centre says there was a lot of buzz about having Avatar come to the IMAX.

“When we were looking at film selections and talking to our viewers, people that were coming up as something that people really wanted to see,” Baumgartner said.
