SK Releases Suicide Squad In IMAX 3D

The much anticipated release of the DC Comics’ movie, Suicide Squad releases at Ster-Kinekor cinemas nationally from Friday, 05 August – including in the larger than life IMAX 3D format, for those who really love their movies! In fact, the best way to watch the non-stop action of this fantasy movie is on the huge IMAX screen with its powerful surround sound.

To enjoy the full effects of all the fantastic 3D effects, make sure you book your tickets to watch Suicide Squad: the IMAX® 3D Experience in one of the seven Ster-Kinekor IMAX theatres, situated at Eastgate, Cradlestone Mall, Mall of Africa and The Grove Mall in Gauteng, Gateway in Durban, Baywest Mall in Port Elizabeth and Cape Gate in Cape Town.

In the movie, intelligence officer Amanda Waller (Viola Davis) decides to assemble a team of dangerous, incarcerated supervillains for a top-secret mission. Figuring it has nothing to lose, the US Government supplies weapons to Deadshot (Will Smith), Harley Quinn (Margot Robbie), Captain Boomerang (Jai Courtney) and other despicable inmates. Dubbed the ‘Suicide Squad’, the united criminals must defeat a mysterious and powerful entity while contending with the antics of the diabolical Joker (Jared Leto).

The IMAX® 3D release of Suicide Squad will be digitally re-mastered into the image and sound quality of The IMAX Experience® with proprietary IMAX DMR® (Digital Re-mastering) technology. The crystal-clear images, coupled with IMAX’s customized theatre geometry and powerful digital audio, create a unique environment that will make audiences feel as if they are one of the squad and entangled in all the action.
