AutoNation IMAX Theater

The Only Florida Theater Offering 15/70mm and Laser Films!

The Unparalleled Experience

South Florida’s Largest Movie Screen!

Seeing a film in the AutoNation® IMAX® Theater is an unparalleled, superior viewing experience.

Every element in our theater is strategically designed and positioned using precise standards to create the most intense and immersive experience. This science is in theater geometry, ensuring movie magic every time the lights go down!

Our six-story-high screen is large enough to show a whale life-size. And bigger is only the beginning. No other IMAX in South Florida even comes close in sound or resolution. 

  • Sharpness: Experience incredible detail in every image with a sharper, clearer and crisper picture that delivers a heightened level of realism on the biggest screens.
  • Brightness: Laser brings an increased level of brightness to fill IMAX® screens with the most vivid and lifelike images in 2D and 3D.
  • Contrast: Dramatically greater contrast levels in each frame provides a level of depth that draws audiences into the movie.
  • Color: The widest range of colors available to filmmakers so they can present more vibrant, deeper and richer colors in IMAX® than ever before.
  • Sound: Whether it’s a pin drop or feeling the heart-palpating force of a volcano, with next generation IMAX® precision sound audiences will experience a new kind of powerful, immersive sound they can feel.

4K Resolution for Optimum Viewing

IMAX with Laser Tech

Clarity, detail and size make IMAX more than a movie. Our remastering process — or DMR — fully transforms every frame of a film to produce the best possible version of a filmmaker’s vision. Two projectors run simultaneously to provide the perfect image with a balance of warmth and sharpness. IMAX draws you into something as close to reality as you have ever experienced!

    The Largest Screen in South Florida

    Certified Giant Screen Cinema

    Bigger. Bolder. Better.

    The AutoNation IMAX 3D Theater and is one of only three theaters in Florida that have been designated as a Certified Giant Screen Cinema® by the Giant Screen Cinema Association. Our six-story-high screen, measuring 60 ft. high x 80 ft. wide, is large enough to show a whale life-size! Our giant screen combined with our unique theater geometry, stadium seating and IMAX sound system provides you with a truly immersive film experience.

      There is no Comparison

      It's like IMAX to the Max!

      The AutoNation® IMAX® Theater also offers 15/70mm Film, which has a full-frame aspect ratio of 1.43:1 (non-tech translation: The image width is 1.43 times the size of its height). This is considerably greater than mainstream cinema presentations, which usually display a 2.39:1 aspect ratio.

      Ultimately this means a full-frame 15/70mm scene will fill the entire height and width of our screen, significantly more than the standard 2.39:1 presentation.
