Check out the latest internship postings from IMAX.


I saw The Dark Knight Rises on Sunday. It was awesome. I only go to 2 or 3 movies a year, but I’d totally see this one again. Thankfully Christopher Nolan decided against having Batman in 3D (I absolutely hate 3D movies–they make my head hurt), and chose IMAX as a superior alternative. If I’m going to see it again, I might as well get the full IMAX experience. For those of you who don’t know, Wikipedia describes IMAX as “a motion picture film format and a set of cinema projection standards” that “has the capacity to record and display images of far greater size and resolution than conventional film systems.” IMAX is also the name of the company behind the technology. They’re based in Mississauga, Ontario, but they have some U.S. based jobs and internships, so I thought they were worth looking at.

To the Max

I’ve actually never seen a major motion picture in IMAX. I’ve only seen documentaries (and that was a long time ago)–and that’s what IMAX was typically used for until Disney released Fantasia 2000 in… you guessed it… 2000. While the IMAX site does have some useful information, I think you’ll be much better off if you read up on the IMAX format on Wikipedia. There are currently “643 IMAX theatres (510 commercial multiplex, 20 commercial destination and 113 institutional) in 52 countries.” I’ll bet the “commercial mutliplex” number has been skyrocketing since Hollywood embraced the format. If you’d also like to embrace the format, then check out IMAX’s Careers page. They have one unpaid U.S. based internship in Film Marketing Internship (Los Angeles, CA) posted, and there’s also a Business Analyst Intern, Strategy & Corporate Development Internship available in Mississauga, Ontario.
