List of IMAX films

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search
For films partially shot with IMAX cameras and those digitally remastered for the IMAX screen, see List of IMAX DMR films. For ride-based short films using IMAX technology, see List of IMAX-based rides.

This is a list of films shot in full with IMAX cameras. Films that may have been projected onto IMAX screens using a standard 35mm print, such as Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith, are not listed. The US premiere dates are displayed where available. Due of the ease of downconverting, most IMAX 3D films have also been remastered and exhibited in 2D, with an appropriate name change (for example Space Station 3D becomes Space Station).
