"Our longtime partners at AMC share our commitment to providing moviegoers a truly unique and cutting-edge experience and we're excited to take that even further with the launch of our new laser system at Navy Pier," said Mark Welton, President, IMAX Theatres. "Navy Pier IMAX at AMC theatre patrons are going to experience dramatic increases in brightness, contrast and color, which ultimately results in suspending disbelief when experiencing today's biggest movies in IMAX."IMAX's next-generation sound technology, which is expected to be installed in early 2017, will deliver even greater power and precision for ultimate audio immersion. It will be upgraded to 12 discrete channels plus sub-bass, and include additional side channels as well as new overhead channels that will improve the system's ability to position sounds around the audience and further ensure every seat is the best in the house.
