SM IMAX: The Ultimate Digital Experience

Stories come to life bigger and brighter at the SM Cinemas as they usher in the latest of their digital theaters, the IMAX at SM North Edsa. Old classics like Charles Dickens’ “A Christmas Carol” and modern bestsellers such as Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince will bring viewers to new heights as they see more, hear more, and feel more in this 3D cinema.

The IMAX at SM North Edsa is the second theater of this kind opened in the Philippines, the first of which is located at SM Mall of Asia. It is said that these theaters are the world’s most advanced digital theatre systems.

SM’s IMAX Theatre at North Edsa will open on July 16, 2009 with it’s screening of Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince.

Other films to watch out for are as follows:

  2. I was looking forward watching Ice Age 3 at IMAX, but was disappointed that it’s not in their line up. We would have liked that my 6-yr old son experience IMAX with his fave movie.

      Try the Digital Cinema at Trinoma :-) They just launched their own 3D theater. I saw Ice Age there last night and it was so cool!
