Star Wars: The Last Jedi 3D
February 16 - April 12
In Lucasfilm’s Star Wars: The Last Jedi, the Skywalker saga continues as the heroes of The Force Awakens join the galactic legends in an epic adventure that unlocks age-old mysteries of the Force and shocking revelations of the past.
The Last Jedi will be screened daily at 7 p.m. on the Tennessee Aquarium IMAX 3D Theater’s six-story screen. Viewers will soak in the film’s Academy Award-nominated score, sound and visual effects via the theater’s IMAX with Laser Projection system, which offers a degree of audiovisual clarity, brightness and precision unmatched by any movie house within hundreds of miles of Chattanooga.
The film follows Force-sensitive heroine Rey (Daisy Ridley) as she seeks guidance and tutelage from Luke Skywalker, the storied Jedi Knight who long since retreated into self-imposed exile. Meanwhile, after a disastrous rout, the last remnants of the Resistance fleet are limping just out of reach of pursuing First Order forces and the unbridled power of their leaders, Kylo Ren (Adam Driver) and Supreme Leader Snoke (Andy Serkis).
Like The Force Awakens before it, The Last Jedi features scenes specifically shot by writer/director Rian Johnson using IMAX cameras. Attending a screening at the Tennessee Aquarium IMAX 3D Theater offers a rare opportunity for fans to see the film in the form closest to its director’s vision.
“I wait for big epics (on film) to see in IMAX,” says Luke Skywalker actor Mark Hamill, in an online featurette. “It’s incomparable. The sound, the seating — it’s like the ultimate movie experience. Thank goodness we have IMAX.”
