DUNKIRK VERT IMAX DOMJoel Kramer provided these comments and the news release below:
 
The Grand Canyon IMAX Theater will be showing Dunkirk, the new movie from Christopher Nolan (Dark Knight; Interstellar; Inception…). Shot in IMAX 70mm. It will be showing for about 6-weeks at the theater, in 70mm IMAX!
 
As you may know, this theater only shows the one film — Grand Canyon, The Hidden Secrets. There has always been a desire by local businesses for a Hollywood film to be shown in the evenings.  This will be a great option for nightly entertainment.

EXPERIENCE DUNKIRK IN 1 OF ONLY 25 IMAX® 70MM THEATERS IN THE U.S.! PLAYING FOR A LIMITED TIME AT GRAND CANYON IMAX STARTING JULY 21st.

The Grand Canyon IMAX Theater, located within the National Geographic Visitor Center Grand Canyon, is pleased to present Christopher Nolan’s epic action thriller Dunkirk. Over 75 years ago, 338,000 troops were rescued from the beaches of Dunkirk in Operation Dynamo, a stunning great escape that helped Britain avoid defeat in World War II. Experience this rare opportunity to see this film the way director Christopher Nolan (Director of The Dark Knight, Inception and Interstellar) intended it to be seen – in IMAX on a GIANT 6-STORY HIGH SCREEN!

Dunkirk was filmed using IMAX 70mm film cameras; meaning scenes shot with this camera will expand to fill the 60’ x 80’ screen with unprecedented crispness, clarity and colorful imagery – a unique and mind-blowing way to see this film. Dunkirk will be shown for a limited time at the Grand Canyon IMAX Theater, so don’t miss the opportunity to immerse yourself in this historical event on the giant screen!

Runtime: 106 minutes • Rated: PG-13 • Studio: Warner Bros. Pictures
