Scorsese’s Rolling Stones film in September


MUMBAI: IMAX Corporation, Paramount Pictures, Shangri-La Entertainment and Concert Productions International announced that the Rolling Stones concert film Shine A Light, directed by Academy Award-winning filmmaker Martin Scorsese, will be released to IMAX theatres simultaneously with the film’s wide release on 21 September, 2007.

Shine A Light will be digitally re-mastered into the image and sound quality of the IMAX Experience with IMAX DMR (Digital Re-Mastering) technology.

“I am very pleased that audiences will have the opportunity to experience Shine A Light in IMAX. The larger-than-life images and sound of an IMAX theatre will only enhance the experience of giving viewers the best seat in the house to watch the Rolling Stones perform,” said Scorsese.

“We couldn’t be happier to work with the Rolling Stones, Paramount, Shangri-La Entertainment and Concert Productions International to bring the Stones and Martin Scorsese to The IMAX Experience. With 12,000 watts of digital surround sound, crystal clear images and IMAX’s immersive screens, this film will offer moviegoers and fans of the Stones a front row ticket to a very cool concert event,” said IMAX Filmed Entertainment chairman and president Greg Foster.

More than a decade ago, the Rolling Stones were featured in an IMAX movie that re-defined the way people experience concert films.
