The Adventure Continues In IMAX
Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire will be released in IMAX® theatres worldwide, in addition to conventional theatres, beginning November 18, 2005. The film has been digitally re-mastered into the unparalleled image and sound quality of The IMAX Experience® with proprietary IMAX DMR® (Digital Re-mastering) technology.

This represents the seventh IMAX DMR film release from Warner Bros. Pictures, and the second film in the Harry Potter film franchise to be digitally re-mastered for The IMAX Experience. It follows the successful June 2004 release of Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban: The IMAX Experience, which grossed nearly $14 million in worldwide IMAX box office. Past Warner Bros. Pictures and IMAX collaborations have included Charlie and the Chocolate Factory: The IMAX Experience, Batman Begins: The IMAX Experience, The Polar Express: An IMAX 3D Experience, the last two installments of the Matrix trilogy, as well as the original production of NASCAR 3D: The IMAX Experience

IMAX Theatres deliver images of unsurpassed clarity and impact, and will enable audiences to experience the magic and adventure of Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire on screens up to eight stories tall and 120 feet wide, surrounded by state-of-the-art digital sound. (IMAX screens can be three times larger than the average 35mm screen, 4,500 times larger than the average TV screen, and as wide as an NFL football field.)

"Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire is a film rich in scope and detail, all of which will be well served by the scope of IMAX,” says David Heyman, producer of the Harry Potter film series. "I have loved the immersive IMAX experience ever since I first saw Fires Of Kuwait over ten years ago, so it is a thrill for me to have Harry Potter shown in this exciting format.”

"We are very excited to bring the suspense, humor, action and drama of Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire to life on the giant IMAX screen,” director Mike Newell says. "The breathtaking IMAX format brings a whole new perspective to this marvelous story.” 

The sheer size of a 15/70 film frame, combined with the unique IMAX projection technology, is key to the extraordinary sharpness and clarity of the images projected in IMAX theatres. The 15/70 film frame is ten times larger than a conventional 35mm frame and three times bigger than a standard 70mm frame. IMAX projectors are the most advanced, powerful and highest-precision projectors in the world, and the key to their superior performance is the proprietary "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 IMAX sound system is a specially designed multi-channel stereo system that delivers superb clarity and quality for maximum impact. The IMAX Proportional Point Source loudspeaker system was specifically designed for IMAX Theatres and delivers superb sound quality to every member of the audience, regardless of where they may be seated.

There are more than 200 educational and entertaining films in the Large Format film library, which have been enjoyed by more than 800 million people around the world.
