The Experience
The IMAX® DOME motion picture syste
m, projects images of unsurpassed size, clarity, and impact onto a dome-shaped screen providing 10,500 square feet of visual imagery. The film is enhanced by a superb, specially-designed, six-channel, multi-speaker sound system. The IMAX® DOME image is 10 times larger than a conventional 35mm frame and three times larger than a standard 70mm frame. The sheer size of the film frame, combined with the unique projection technology, is the key to the extraordinary sharpness and clarity of an IMAX® film.


Sound is critical to the IMAX® experience. The six-channel, high fidelity motion picture sound system, with sub-bass, is manufactured by Sonics Associates Inc., a world leader in sound design. This allows every member of the audience to experience superb sound quality regardless of their seat position.


The Projectors

The projector in the Florida Hospital IMAX® DOME Theatre at MOSI is the key to its superior performance and reliability and has a unique “Rolling Loop” film movement. The Rolling Loop advances the film horizontally in a smooth, wave-like motion. During projection, each frame is positioned on fixed registration pins, and the film is held firmly against the rear element of the lens by a vacuum. As a result, the picture and focus steadiness are far above normal standards.
