I saw this on TV earlier this month or last month. It's a double screen IMAX auditorium in which the bottom screen can be seen through a glass floor in the seating area. The bottom screen & projector are angled at 45 degrees & the film travels through plastic tubes in the floor of the upper booth to the bottom projector & back up. This is at a France theme park called Futuroscope. CLICK HERE Scroll down to bottom of page to see diagram.

Sounds like the thing they call 'Le tapis magique' (magic carpet)

In the diagram enlargement, it does indicate that the two projectors are IMAX, however, it says this at the bottom of the Wings of Courage page:
quote:
In 3D; 106 m² flat-screen cinema, 2 x 35 mm projectors, 4 perforations
That doesn't sound like IMAX to me. Whereas, on the Young Black Stallion and Space Station 3D pages, it reads, respectively:
quote:
IMAX: 600 m² flat-screen cinema;70 mm film, 15 perforations.
quote:
IMAX Dome: 180° screen, 900 m²; 70 mm double projector, 15 perforations; 2 “fish-eye” lenses.

Cool. Their page, then, is just a bit misleading, I guess.

The description is correct. The current version of Wings of Courage being shown is 35mm dual-strip 3D on a single screen. The web programmers screwed up by putting up the Magic Carpet diagram.
