The Incredible Process of How a 70mm IMAX Film is Played

The Incredible Process of How a 70mm IMAX Film is Played

70mm IMAX reels are MASSIVE. They’re the diameter of a Mack truck wheel and can weigh just as much—400 pounds.

In this video by High Orbit Media, John Ruddock walks viewers through the surprisingly labor-intensive process of what it takes to show a 70mm IMAX film. And while Metaflix isn’t a fusspot when it comes to the film versus digital debate, we will definitely always love the clacking sound of the projector, the cigarette burn cue marks, and the subtle imperfections of dust and scratches on good ol’ fashioned film!

It's not all digital yet! This short film takes you deep inside an IMAX projection booth revealing the meticulous process of threading a 70mm film print through a Mini Cooper sized film projector. The resolution of 70mm film is still far greater than what 4K digital projectors can produce.
