Nikita Mikhalkov said that in Russia they are able to create an analogue of IMAX


Russian specialists can develop a system similar to the format IMAX. This was announced in an interview by the chairman of the Union of Cinematographers Nikita Mikhalkov.

On June 1, 2022, the Canadian corporation left the domestic market and banned the showing of films in the IMAX format, including Russian ones. According to distributors, she is threatened with courts, but Mikhalkov is sure that there are specialists in the country who are ready to present a domestic analogue.

“As for the ban on the use of IMAX, listen, 16 years after the bloody destructive Patriotic War, the country launched a satellite into space, what kind of IMAX is there,” says Mikhalkov. “With today’s oil and gas revenues, this is the minimum cost for talented smart guys to come up with a system that is not worse than IMAX.”

The Canadian corporation was founded in 1967 in Montreal, its headquarters is located in the Toronto area. IMAX has offices in New York and Los Angeles. Halls of this format are significantly different from standard cinema halls.

The technology is based on a large screen, which is several times larger than that in a conventional cinema. Another feature is surround sound.
