Film lovers are in for a treat this weekend as Cineworld cinemas are celebrating the wonder that is IMAX. Cineworld’s exclusive one-day IMAX festival will be happening at all 24 Cineworld IMAX cinemas across the UK and Ireland, and will be screening classic IMAX movies for the rock-bottom price of only £3 each!
IMAX is the world’s most immersive and innovative movie-going experience. With crystal-clear images, a floor to ceiling, wall to wall screen and a powerful digital sound system, The IMAX Experience was designed to make audiences feel as if they are in the film. We absolutely love IMAX at EF and will always opt to see a film in the format where possible. This weekend’s festival is a great way to experience IMAX if you’re unfamiliar with it.
Kicking off the IMAX festival is family favourite The Lion King, the stunning re-telling of one of Disney’s most beloved classics. Featuring pioneering filmmaking techniques, audiences can immerse themselves in the soundtrack of the century through IMAX’s heart-pounding audio, while witnessing the loveable iconic characters as they come to life on the largest screen.
Also returning is not only the biggest IMAX film of 2019, or the biggest Marvel superhero film of all time – it’s the biggest box office draw of all time Avengers: Endgame. Filmed entirely with IMAX cameras, the Russo Brothers designed their epic film specifically for fans to experience in IMAX. *See the prolific Avengers cast, including Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, Mark Ruffalo, Chris Hemsworth and Scarlett Johansson, as the Avengers face their final showdown against Thanos (Josh Brolin).
Later in the afternoon see Spider-man: Far From Home with Tom Holland reprising his role as everyone’s friendly neighbourhood superhero. Specially formatted exclusively for IMAX to present audiences up to 26% more picture, comic book lovers will feel transported into Spider-Man’s action-packed adventure across Europe as he unites with Nick Fury.
The finale showing for the festival brings the multi-nominated and award-winning Joker back to IMAX. Feel even closer to Arthur Fleck’s slow descent into madness in immersive IMAX as Oscar and BAFTA winner Joaquin Phoenix delivers his critically acclaimed and dramatic performance.
Casey Cohen, Head of Marketing at Cineworld, said:
“We’re thrilled to see the return of the IMAX Film Fest following its successful run over the last four years.

As IMAX’s biggest partner in the UK, we’re proud to be bringing the IMAX experience to more customers than ever before.”
