Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban: The IMAX Experience

bigImage The Harry Potter film franchise continues with the third installment, HARRY POTTER & THE PRISONER OF AZKABAN. A teenage Harry and his friends continue their studies at Hogwarts just as a new threat appears -- an escapee from the Wizards Prison and he's coming for Harry. Digitally remastered, the film was released in IMAX theaters in addition to conventional theatres in the summer of 2004.

NOTE: "Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban" has been digitally remastered for IMAX Theaters using the IMAX DMR conversion, a process that take a 35mm film print and outputs it to true 70mm size and resolution. The only other films before this to get the DMR conversion were "Apollo 13," "Star Wars: Episode II," "Matrix Reloaded" and "Matrix Revolutions." Any other Hollywood live-action films shown in the past on IMAX Screens were blown-up 35mm prints, and were not sanctioned by IMAX Corporation as "an IMAX Experience."
