El Paso’s very own IMAX Theater will finally be opening at Bassett Place on November 21st.  With a screen that’s 70 feet long and five stories tall, the movie experience is sure to be amazing.  The first movie you’ll get a chance to see on this humongous screen is “The Hunger Games: Catching Fire”.  Here’s a list of a few other movies you may get a chance to watch on IMAX in 2014.

The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug An IMAX 3D Experience

A movie filled with 5-story-tall little people! What’s not to like?!

Release date: 12/13/2013

RoboCop: The IMAX Experience

This 80’s cult classic is being revamped for all the kids who’ve never heard the classic line, “Dead or alive, you’re coming with me!” and of course RoboCop’s prime directives of “Serve the public trust. Protect the innocent. Uphold the Law (then followed by two hours of him shooting EVERYTHING).”  I’m just a bit disappointed that the visual effects will be top notch and not unintentionally hilarious like the ones in the original were.

Release date:  02/12/2014


300: Rise of an Empire An IMAX 3D Experience

Ride the wave of blood as it travels 70 feet across the entire length of the IMAX screen!

Release date: 03/07/2014


Transformers: Age of Extinction An IMAX 3D Experience

A movie filled with 5-story-tall (aka life-size) robots! What’s not to like?!

Release date: 06/27/2014
