Hollywood’s Chinese Theatre to become world’s largest IMAX cinema

Hollywood landmark the Chinese Theatre is to reopen to the public next month (Sep13) as the world’s largest IMAX theatre. The Hollywood Boulevard tourist attraction, which once hosted the world’s biggest film premieres, is set to make history on 20 September (13) when it launches a run of movie classic Wizard of Oz in IMAX 3D.
The event will be held to mark the 75th anniversary of the beloved film’s release.
The new TCL Chinese Theatre will not only be the world’s biggest IMAX theatre, it will also be the first IMAX theatre in Hollywood.
Excited IMAX CEO Richard L. Gelfond tells WENN, “Steeped in Hollywood tradition and history, the TCL Chinese Theatre is arguably one of the most famous movie theatres in the world and we are honoured to bring The IMAX Experience to this iconic location.”
