Any chance Wilmington will get an IMAX theater?

Amy Hotz

IMAX theaters have been wowing audiences with in-your-face 3D movies since 1967. They call it “immersive motion picture technologies.”

But, if you want to be immersed anytime soon, you’re going to have to plan a day trip. According to a publicist with IMAX Corporation, jointly based in New York and Toronto, no IMAX are theaters planned for Wilmington or the surrounding area.

The closest one to this area is Myrtle Beach IMAX 3D, 1195 Celebrity Circle in Myrtle Beach. There are also IMAX theaters in Raleigh, Charlotte and Charleston. A  new IMAX theater is expected to open in Charleston in October 2009.
