Gallery: Behind the scenes at new Telford Imax

Here is the first glimpse behind the scenes of the 11-screen IMAX cinema at Telford's Southwater leisure destination.

Native Monster got a sneak peek of the venue which opens on August 7.

The 27ft high and 50ft wide IMAX screen has just arrived from Canada ready to be hauled into place.

"The screen is curved and the size and quality of the picture, combined with the enhanced sound system makes it an all round film experience," said Phil Jones, the cinema's general manager.

Screen two is the largest with 350 seats and disabled access boxes.

The wall to wall screen and extended leg room promises a great view and that standing up to let people in will be a thing of the past. The cinema will stay open until 10pm during the week and 11pm on Fridays and Saturdays.
