Rolling Stones: Live at the Max.

Share the love at IMAX this February

This February, IMAX Melbourne is giving visitors a chance to experience the world’s greatest rock band - The Rolling Stones - on the giant screen in a 90-minute concert movie. And with our Free Friend in Feb offer you can experience this, or any movie at IMAX Melbourne, with the person you love spending time with the most.

This year is the 50th Anniversary of The Rolling Stones formation. To celebrate, IMAX Melbourne Museum has the ultimate summer treat for all ages: two tickets for the price of one to experience all our films, including Rolling Stones: Live at the Max.

According to IMAX Melbourne Museum General Manager Richard Morrison, this will put a bounce in your step no matter how old you are.

“The Stones really has been a band that transcended time. Whether you saw the band tour Australia in 1965, experienced the vibe when they came back in 1973, or wished you were in Europe for their 1990 Urban Jungle Tour, this is your chance to relive it,” said Mr Morrison.

Rolling Stones: Live at the Max was filmed with IMAX cameras during their 1990 Urban Jungle Tour of Europe and sees the band completely fill the seven storey high IMAX screen.

According to reviewer Roger Ebert in a 1992 review, this is; ‘the greatest concert film ever made.’

“Dance in the aisles as you experience The Stones rock it out on the world’s (3rd) largest screen in 15,000 watt digital surround sound,” said Mr. Morrison.

Live at the Max is just one of the favourites IMAX Melbourne Museum is bringing back for you to enjoy with a mate this February; also returning is the ultimate adrenaline-junkie flick, Extreme and Avatar 3D: Special edition.

“Featuring big wave surfing, amazing rock climbing and other adventure sports, Extreme at IMAX Melbourne is the ultimate movie for adrenaline junkies this February,” said Mr Morrison.

“And with ground breaking special effects that create the stunning world of Pandora, Avatar 3D captured hearts and imaginations across the globe.”
