Tickets go on sale Monday at mosi.org for the most immersive Star Wars movie experience in Florida.
Tampa, Florida – The all-new epic adventure from Lucasfilm, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story – the first of the Star Wars standalone films – will open at the Florida Hospital IMAX® DOME Theatre at the Museum of Science & Industry on Dec. 16. Tickets go on sale at mosi.org at 12:01 a.m. Monday, Nov. 28.
The Florida Hospital IMAX® DOME Theatre at MOSI will be offering The IMAX Experience® featuring 15 perf/70mm film projection which combines the brightest, clearest images at almost 10 times the resolution of standard projection formats, with powerful, laser-aligned digital sound and customized theatre geometry to create the world’s most immersive film experience.
The IMAX® release of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story will be digitally re-mastered into the image and sound quality of The IMAX Experience® with proprietary IMAX DMR® (Digital Re-mastering) technology. The crystal-clear images, coupled with IMAX’s customized theatre geometry and powerful digital audio, create a special environment that immerses the audience.
Rogue One: A Star Wars Story centers on a group of unlikely heroes who, in a time of conflict, band together on a mission to steal the plans to the Death Star, the Empire’s ultimate weapon of destruction. This key event in the Star Wars timeline brings together ordinary people who choose to do extraordinary things, and in doing so, become part of something greater than themselves.
“MOSI is the place to be for a Star Wars experience that truly surrounds you,” said MOSI President & CEO Molly Demeulenaere. “You’re surrounded by the images on the five-story curved screen; you’re surrounded by sound that comes from every direction, including behind the screen; and you’re surrounded by an audience full of people who love Star Wars as much as you do.”
