Movie lovers in Hyderabad can Rejoice. Prasads I-MAX in the city is going to end up as the only theater in India that will be screening Christopher Nolan’s ‘Interstellar’ in 70 mm IMAX format. In layman’s terms, Giant I-MAX print.

As a result, film buffs from all major Indian cities are now showing interest in this theater, to catch a glimpse of Nolan’s sci-fi adventure in the way he envisioned it. Nolan is a fierce advocate of Celluloid and he detests the digital format. Because of this, he shot the film completely on 35mm film and 70mm I-MAX film.

Nolan’s fascination for Celluloid has turned out to be a blessing in disguise for "Prasads Multiplex". The Management has not upgraded the 70mm I-MAX film projector to the digital version, like most others have done. As a result, it has missed out on some recent IMAX blockbusters. Films were being screened with a "Christie 4k" Projection system on the giant screen.

Nolan has gone against the trend and his penchant for using analogue technology has now brought Prasads IMAX back into the limelight. Other I-MAX screens in Mumbai and Bangalore will be using the regular IMAX print and not the 70mm immersive format.
