DEARBORN, Mich. – Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol – The IMAX Experience, the highly-anticipated fourth installment of the action epic Mission: Impossible franchise from Paramount Pictures, begins previews on Thursday, December 15 at The Henry Ford IMAX Theatre, and opens worldwide on December 21, 2011.
The six-day early preview window marks the first time a Hollywood feature film has been released early in IMAX theaters. Along with this exclusive preview, The Henry Ford IMAX Theatre is the only theater in Michigan to feature the six-minute opening sequence of Warner Bros. Pictures’ The Dark Knight Rises, the epic conclusion to Director Christopher Nolan’s Batman trilogy and one of the most anticipated films of 2012.
Two special premiere performances of Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol – The IMAX Experience featuring The Dark Knight Rises prologue will be held at 9:00 p.m. and 12 Midnight on December 15, with doors opening at 7:30 p.m. Regular daily show times from December 16 – December 20, will be: 10:00 a.m., 12:45 p.m., 3:30 p.m., 6:15 p.m. and 9:00 p.m. Show times for December 21 – February 9 will vary daily on weekdays and weekends.
Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol – The IMAX Experience also features approximately 30 minutes of scenes shot with IMAX 15-perforation/70mm film cameras. These specific sequences will expand to fill Michigan’s largest screen, exclusively in IMAX, and immerse the audience in the explosive action and vast scope of the film further than any other IMAX theatre in Michigan is capable of. One featured sequence includes the unbelievable stunt performed by Tom Cruise as he scaled the world’s tallest building, the Burj Khalifa Tower in Dubai, providing an up-close, you-are-there experience as only The Henry Ford IMAX Theatre Experience can offer.
The Henry Ford IMAX Theatre is located at 20900 Oakwood Boulevard in Dearborn. For information on tickets and showtimes, please call 313-982-6001 or visit the website at http://www.thehenryford.org/imax/index.aspx.
