Catch Her In Imax
In addition to conventional theatres, Catwoman will be released in IMAX® theatres beginning July 23, 2004. The film has been digitally re-mastered into the unparalleled image and sound quality of The IMAX Experience® through proprietary IMAX DMR® (Digital Re-mastering) technology. Catwoman is the fourth IMAX DMR film release from Warner Bros. Pictures in the last two years, following the release of the second and third chapters of The Matrix trilogy and the record-breaking performance of Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban in IMAX theatres. 

IMAX Theatres offer unequalled clarity and intensity of image as audiences experience the mysterious, action-packed adventure of Catwoman on screens up to eight stories tall and 120 feet wide, and surrounded by 12,000 watts of pure digital sound. (IMAX screens are three times larger than the average 35mm screen, 4,500 times larger than the average TV screen, and are as wide as an NFL football field.) "Bringing this story to the screen has been a dream of mine for a long time,” says producer Denise Di Novi, "and I'm particularly excited that audiences will have the opportunity to experience the action and adventure of Catwoman in IMAX's dynamic, immersive format.”

The sheer size of a 15/70 film frame, combined with the unique IMAX projection technology, is the key to the extraordinary sharpness and clarity of a 15/70 film. The 15/70 image is ten times larger than a conventional 35mm frame and three times bigger than a standard 70mm frame. IMAX projectors are the most advanced, highest-precision and most powerful projectors ever built. The key to their superior performance and reliability is the unique "Rolling Loop” film movement. The Rolling Loop advances the film horizontally in a smooth, wave-like motion. During projection, each frame is positioned on fixed registration pins, and the film is held firmly against the rear element of the lens by a vacuum. As a result, the picture and focus steadiness are far above normal projection standards and provide outstanding image clarity.

To fully envelop IMAX Theatre-goers, the presentation is enhanced by a six-channel stereo surround system comprised of 44 custom-designed speakers that extract 12,000 watts of pure digital surround sound. The IMAX Proportional Point Source loudspeaker system was specifically designed for IMAX Theatres and allows the audience superb sound quality regardless of where they may be seated. Today, there are more than 200 films in the medium's film library, many of them bridging the gap between education and entertainment experience, providing entertainment to markets worldwide.
