A 'two-dimensional' or 2D image, projects height and width - but not depth - when used in reference to moving pictures or graphic image technology. These images are projected onto the big screen to fill the height and width, but without the depth perception of a 3D format. All the latest films screened at Ster-Kinekor's more than 470 large-scale digital screens are available in 2D format.

A 'three-dimensional' or 3D image that is projected onto the cinema screen displays height, width and the perception of depth. 3D imagery cannot be created without duplicating the effect of two eyes working in tandem, which allows three-dimensional perceptive effects such as depth perception. A 3D movie has two versions of every frame, each one from a slightly different angle, which mimics the way we see the world through our two eyes. This give the illusion of three dimensions. Ster-Kinekor currently has the largest 3D footprint and features 140 state-of-the-art 3D screens at its 58 complexes across the country. To fully appreciate the impact and effect of a film's 3D images, 3D glasses are required to watch a film in 3D.

Ster-Kinekor currently offers the immersive IMAX® cinema experience in bespoke IMAX® theatres at seven of its sites countrywide. Here, you get to enjoy the maximum movie experience, either in 2D or the larger-than-life, in-your-face IMAX 3D® Experience that makes you feel as if you are part of the action playing out on the massive ceiling-to-floor and wall-to-wall screen. With two 2K IMAX projectors and surround sound, IMAX theatres are defined by heart-pounding audio, awe-inspiring images and an overall immersive cinema experience. Every note of the soundtrack and every scuff of a shoe is clearer in IMAX, and all of this pristine sound is then pumped into a theatre that has been customised for an optimal experience. Clarity, detail and size make IMAX more than a movie. The remastering - or DMR - process fully transforms every frame of a film to produce the best possible version of a filmmaker's vision. I LOVE MOVIES. IMAX MOVIES.
