POOLER, Ga. (WTOC) - The excitement is brewing in Pooler. One of theaters will soon become home to the world’s tallest IMAX Screen.

The current IMAX screen is 40 feet by 70 feet.

The new one will be 101 feet wide and 76 feet and 2 inches tall.

Royal Cinemas and IMAX said this project was supposed to be done in 2020, but it was delayed because of COVID. They said they still wanted to do something big that would give Pooler something they could call their own.

“With everything we’ve been dealing with, it’s something we’re really excited for, but now with all the stresses, all the problems all the trials and tribulations that the world has been going into especially our’ll be really nice to have something we can go enjoy as entertainment and be able to lose ourselves in a different world,” said Camille Penny, General Manager of Royal Cinemas and IMAX.

The theater said the screen will have increased resolution, sharper images and the widest range of colors. The screen is so large it had to be painted by a specially designed robotic arm.

They don’t have an exact date, but it should be finished in a few weeks.
