IMAX with Laser now illuminating the AutoNation IMAX 3D Theatre
The science of cinema has been raised to the level of Magic at the AutoNation IMAX 3D Theatre now that IMAX with Laser is illuminating the six story screen by lasers. This new technology with dual 4K laser projectors has revolutionized the way we experience 3D films on the big screen. The new laser projector technology offers brighter images, intense colors, and incredible detail that will leave you in awe.

There’s also a next-generation immersive 12-channel sound system featuring 114 speakers capable of 52,000 watts of digital sound. Whether it’s a pin drop or feeling the heart-palpitating force of a volcano, audiences will experience a new kind of visceral sound experience.

IMAX with Laser is a blend of science and art to deliver a cinema experience that suspends disbelief and transports audiences to new worlds. It’s the difference between watching a movie and being a part of one. The AutoNation IMAX 3D Theater is the only place in Florida where you can experience the power of IMAX with Laser.

Backyard Wilderness will surprise and entertain viewers with the unexpected wonders of nature that are right under our noses-in our own backyards. Spanning a seasonal year around a suburban home, the film displays a stunning array of unique wildlife images and behavior-all captured by cameras mounted inside dens and nests, and moving along the forest floor and pond bottom, to reveal its inhabitants in rare and breathtaking intimacy. We follow Katie, a young girl, and her modern family living next to the woods that are blind to the real-life spectacle around them, absorbed by an array of electronic devices in their busy lives. Katie gradually discovers the intricate secrets that nature has hidden so close to her front door and we experience the joy she finds in her interactions with this new world. The film reminds us that Wi-Fi is not the only connection that matters and that sometimes in ordinary places, you can uncover extraordinary things that could transform you forever–you just need to step outside.
