Purpose: to inspire, inform and increase tourism in Jordan
by showing people around the world a true — and much bigger-than-life
— picture of this small and important country. It may be
especially timely for western viewers to learn about Jordan’s
warm hospitality and its rich culture that includes fascinating
examples of early Islam, Christianity and Judaism.
The Format: The giant-screen IMAX format, utilizing
horizontally moving film, is the most spectacular film medium
ever invented. Its gigantic screen, crystal-clear imagery and
powerful surround-sound audio system create a powerful sense of
realism, giving audiences a visceral “you are there”
Theater: We also propose that an admission-charging IMAX
theater be established in Amman, so that the film can be exhibited
regularly as an educational and inspirational experience for Jordanians
and tourists alike. In addition, there will be a changing schedule
of other IMAX productions on subjects ranging from ocean, land
and space exploration to Harry Potter and Disney films to tours
of other nations.
Experience: IMAX films provide a unique experience. The
screens are up to eight stories high — large enough to show
an adult blue whale life-size. In IMAX theaters seating is pitched
so that everyone, even small children, can look up, down and sideways
to see the entire screen without obstruction. Please
email us for a detailed proposal!
