EXCLUSIVE: The largest IMAX screen in the world is to be opened to the public on September 30th in the Traumpalast Multiplex in Leonberg.
With a height of 21.03 meters and a width of 38.16 meters – wider than a Boeing 737 airplane – the record-breaking screen starts with the latest James Bond contribution No Time to Die, which shows sequences shot with IMAX film cameras .
The screen of the 574-seat IMAX in the Traumpalast weighed over 227 kilos, another IMAX record, and had to be painted by a specially developed robotic arm.
The theater, which was first announced two and a half years ago, will feature IMAX with laser technology and IMAX’s 12-channel audio technology with side and overhead channels for dynamics and precision.

Taken with IMAX 15/70 mm film cameras by Cary Fukunaga and specially formatted for IMAX theaters, No Time To Die offers 40 minutes of IMAX’s exclusive extended aspect ratio. The film is the first Bond entry to be shot with IMAX cameras. For the Traumpalast audience, the film will present the IMAX-exclusive aspect ratio of 1.90: 1, so that cinema-goers can experience up to 26% more image for the film for these selected sequences.
The IMAX Dream Palace is the company’s eighth theater in Germany. The company had its highest box office year in the territory in 2019.
“The IMAX in the Dream Palace is redefining the ‘big screen’,” says Rich Gelfond, CEO of IMAX. “With Lochmann Filmtheaterbetriebe we have created an unforgettable cinema experience where fans can immerse themselves in the world’s biggest blockbusters on the world’s largest screen. While we continue to grow in Germany and open new cult locations worldwide, the IMAX in the Traumpalast will become an exciting flagship location for fans who are looking for first-class, differentiated experiences at a critical time. “
Audiences in Germany and beyond will travel far to see the IMAX at Dream Palace, from its huge screen and incredible audio to the luxurious seating and other exciting amenities the theater has to offer. We are proud to work with IMAX at this new, record-breaking location and we can hardly wait to let fans in, ”added the exhibitors Marius and Heinz Lochmann.
