Ster-Kinekor releases Interstella in the ‘IMAX®’ theatres at ‘Gateway’ and ‘The Grove’


One of the years’ most anticipated films of the year is coming to IMAX® this November! All the action happens at the IMAX® 3D theatres at Ster-Kinekor Gateway in Durban and The Grove in Pretoria, with the release of Christopher Nolan’s ‘under-wraps’ film, Interstellar, on Friday, 07 November.

But, if waiting one extra day for its release and to catch Matthew McConaughey on screen is just too much for you, Ster-Kinekor has taken care of that too! Exclusive pre-release screenings of Interstellar have been scheduled on Thursday, 06 November at 20:00 only, in its two IMAX® theatres. If you want to be among the first to watch this epic film in an epic cinema environment, bookings are now open!

The IMAX® release ofInterstellar has been digitally re-mastered into the image and sound quality of The IMAX Experience® using proprietary IMAX DMR® (Digital Re-mastering) technology. The crystal-clear images coupled with IMAX’s customised theatre geometry and powerful digital audio create a unique environment that will make audiences feel as if they are in the movie.

Director Christopher Nolan designed Interstellar for IMAX® and shot portions of the film using IMAX® cameras. As a result, only in IMAX® theatres will these sequences expand vertically to fill the entire screen, providing movie-goers with even greater scope and breathtaking image quality for a truly immersive experience. Everything, from the movie itself to the theatre design, projection and sound, has been customised and enhanced to make the audience feel that they are not watching a film, but that they are an integral part of the action.

In the future, governments and economies across the globe have collapsed, food is scarce, NASA is no more, and the 20th Century is to blame. A mysterious rip in space-time opens and it is up to whatever is left of NASA to explore this and offer up some hope for mankind.

Interstellar chronicles the adventures of a group of explorers who make use of a newly discovered wormhole to surpass the limitations on human space travel and conquer the vast distances involved in an interstellar voyage.

Among the travellers is a widowed engineer (Matthew McConaughey), who must make a life-changing decision: to leave his two children behind to join the voyage and attempt to save humanity from an environmentally devastated earth.

In addition to Academy Award winner Matthew McConaughey (Dallas Buyer’s Club, TV’s True Detective), Interstellar features an all-star cast including Anne Hathaway (Les MiserablesThe Dark Knight Rises), Jessica Chastain (Zero Dark Thirty, The Help), Bill Irwin (Rachel Getting Married, TV’s CSI: Crime Scene Investigation), Ellen Burstyn (The Exorcist, The Last Picture Show) and Michael Caine (Inception, The Dark Knight Trilogy).
