EVT has been announced as the operator of the new IMAX Sydney, which is slated to open later this year within the Ribbon at Darling Harbour.

IMAX Sydney will be the fourth IMAX operated by EVT internationally, joining IMAX Auckland, IMAX Queensgate (New Zealand), and IMAX Karlsruhe (Germany).

IMAX Sydney will feature a 693sqm screen developed to deliver crystal clear, life-like images and precision audio.

“We’re thrilled to partner with EVT to bring audiences a world-class movie going experience at the new IMAX Sydney theatre in The Ribbon,” said Giovanni Dolci, chief sales officer at IMAX.

“We’re confident that this iconic venue will become a cultural landmark and will instantly join the ranks of our most celebrated and successful flagship cinemas around the world, from New York, Cannes and Tokyo to Los Angeles, Seoul and London.”

In an Australian first, IMAX Sydney, will feature EVT’s signature ‘Your Cinema, Your Way’ seating giving movie-goers the choice to upgrade their experience with multiple seating options from full recliners to private pods. In addition, the location will also offer a marketplace food and beverage experience.

“At EVT, our vision is to be leaders in creating experiences and properties that escape the ordinary. Our research tells us that audiences want choice,” said Luke Mackey, EVT’s director of entertainment Australia.

“We’ve created multiple ways to experience IMAX, featuring Australian first premium seating options; full recliners, couples lounges and private pods.

“The location also leverages experts from across EVT to deliver elevated food and beverage and an innovative venue for conferences and events.

“We believe that IMAX Sydney located in the heart of Sydney will be the best IMAX in Australia, attracting locals and tourists alike”.
