DURHAM, NC — For those people who live in the greater Durham and Chapel Hill area who like the immersive IMAX experience for movies won’t have to commute to Raleigh or Cary anymore come late spring.

A new movie theater by Southpoint Cinemas using technology similar to the IMAX is almost under completion at the Streets at Southpoint Cinemas. Completion could be as early as March or even as of May.

Called PDX, for Premium Digital Experience, the new theater will have two digital projectors that will deliver digital 2D and 3D films on a wall-to-wall screen, complete with a 7.1 surround sound system and high back rocker seating.

The new theater is planned to have about 385 seats, compared to the IMAX’s 270, but won’t show scientific and educational films made for the IMAX. It will be able to show movies like “Inception,” “Harry Potter” and other blockbusters.

This is scheduled to open either before the weekend of Easter or around Memorial Day.
Among the movies scheduled to be played in the new theatre will be recent blockbusters as well as standard Hollywood classics that will get the IMAX treatment.
