The State Opera House in Vienna was recently specially transformed into an IMAX theatre for the premiere of Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation, the second time IMAX has transformed an iconic venue for a one-night-only global premiere following Paramount’s Transformers: Age of Extinction in June 2014.

For the red-carpet event and screening, the historic Vienna State Opera House received a makeover of IMAX proportions.

Taking three days to install and optimise, the team equipped the opera house with an IMAX screen measuring approximately 56 by 37 feet, in addition to IMAX’s proprietary dual-projection system and a custom sound system configured and tuned to optimise the playback of the film’s IMAX soundtrack in this unique environment.

Attending the world premiere in Vienna was Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation director Christopher McQuarrie; stars Tom Cruise, Simon Pegg and Rebecca Ferguson; and producers Bryan Burk, David Ellison, Dana Goldberg and Don Granger.

Representing IMAX at the premiere event was CEO Richard L. Gelfond, along with IMAX President EMEA Andrew Cripps.

“We could not be more excited to partner with our friends at Paramount Pictures, Skydance and Tom Cruise to give Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation an exclusive world premiere event that is worthy of its epic scope and scale,” says Richard.

“The film is the kind of summer action-packed thrill ride that deserves to be seen in the most awe-inspiring way possible – in IMAX.”

The IMAX release of Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation was digitally re-mastered into the image and sound quality of The IMAX Experience with proprietary IMAX DMR(Digital Re-mastering) technology.
