Experience IMAX

You haven’t experienced a movie until you’ve experienced it in an IMAX theatre. Just what makes an IMAX theatre so special? IMAX offers digital remastering, which can make a great movie an unforgettable experience. Digital remastering offered by the IMAX experience includes unparalleled audio and visual quality that makes every movie infinitely better. IMAX screens are also larger and curved, which creates a unique experience for the viewer. Seeing a movie in 3D on an IMAX screen is even more special and offers viewers a real-life adventure without leaving the seat of a movie theatre in Atlanta. 3D IMAX movies have taken viewers from the depths of the deepest parts of the ocean to the tallest peak of Mount Everest. Want to see a movie on an IMAX screen? Visit the Regal Atlantic Station Cinema to see the latest releases and IMAX productions like never before.
