Supersize ‘The Great Wall of China’ on Imax @sterkinekor


1700 years to build. 5500 miles long. What were they trying to keep out?

The Great Wall of China is one of the greatest wonders of the world – and one of a few human constructions that can be seen from outer space. It is only fitting then, that a movie with “The Great Wall” as its title is shown on a screen that befits its magnitude.

As such, The Great Wall will enjoy an exclusive release in Ster-Kinekor’s IMAX theatres. This action-packed, epic monster film starring Matt Damon releases in all Ster-Kinekor’s IMAX theatres, together with the film’s national release at all the cinema chain’s sites, on Friday, 17 February.

You won’t want to miss this one on the big screen. Book your tickets now to watch the IMAX® 3D release of The Great Wall in the most immersive cinema experience.

The Great Wall stars global superstar Matt Damon and is directed by one of the most breath-taking visual stylists and visionaries of our time, Zhang Yimou (Hero, House of Flying Daggers).

The film tells the story of an elite force making a valiant stand for humanity on the world’s most iconic structure. The first English-language production for Yimou is also the largest film ever shot entirely on location in China. The Great Wall also stars Jing Tian, Pedro Pascal, Willem Dafoe and Andy Lau.

The IMAX release of The Great Wall has been digitally re-mastered into the image and sound quality of An IMAX 3D Experience® with 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 mystical land of China and a part of the all-out action!
