Kinepolis Luxembourg has announced that the first IMAX cinema in Luxembourg will open at Kinepolis-Kirchberg on Friday 6 October 2023.

Described as "a cinematic experience of unparalleled immersion", the IMAX® cinema "promises to transport spectators to the heart of the action"

Work begins today, 18 August 2023, with Screening room #1 being transformed 1 into an IMAX cinema which will feature IMAX® technology with Laser, an exclusive, next-generation laser projection and multi-channel sound system. 

According to Kinepolis, IMAX with Laser is an immersive system by design, developed from the ground up to deliver clear, lifelike images and precision sound for an unprecedented cinematic experience. IMAX with Laser is distinguished by its 4K laser projection system featuring a new optical engine and a suite of exclusive IMAX technologies that deliver crystal-clear images, increased resolution, deeper contrast as well as the most distinct and exotic colours ever available on screen. The new experience also includes next-generation IMAX precision sound, delivering increased dynamic range and precision for the ultimate audio immersion.

Films will be digitally remastered especially for the new system with proprietary IMAX DMR® (Digital Re-mastering) technology to take advantage of the sharpness, brightness, contrast, colour and other attributes it can offer. The process enhances the image frame-by-frame and remixes the soundtrack to transport viewers beyond their seats and into the world of the film.

Kinepolis's announcement stated that it is convinced that next-generation IMAX laser projection, combined with blockbuster films adapted to the IMAX format, will provide an additional exclusive cinematic experience for Luxembourg cinephiles. “The opening of this new IMAX cinema at Kinepolis Kirchberg is proof of our continued commitment to investing in the best cinematic experience,” said Eddy Duquenne, CEO of Kinepolis Group. "Cinephiles increasingly expect fuller, more intense cinematic experiences, and we know from our customers in Belgium - where we have an IMAX cinema in Brussels and Antwerp - that IMAX meets these expectations for all perspectives."
