Get ready for Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse in IMAX with our essential Spidey playlist

The Cineworld IMAX Film Fest gets underway on April 20th and we're flying high with our presentation of the 2023 blockbuster Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse. Remember, tickets are only £3 and you can book them at the end of this post if you haven't done so already.

Don't miss your chance to catch this visually arresting, emotional and exciting comic book classic on the big screen again. If you missed the movie in IMAX the first time around, ensure you're first in line to watch Miles Morales' latest adventure in IMAX-level clarity and sharpness.

IMAX isn't simply about the visual presentation. It's also about the immersive sound that helps plant you in the world of the biggest blockbusters. Given that Spider-Verse teams with multifaceted sound and music effects, it promises a richly engaging IMAX experience that will catapult you into the multiverse and beyond.

You can imagine how dynamic the soundtrack is when you hear it in IMAX. To get you prepared, we've put together an essential IMAX playlist of tunes from the movie. Scroll down to listen, but not before we've explained why the sound of IMAX is unlike anything you've experienced before.

What is IMAX and how does it work?

IMAX deploys visual scope and sonic dynamism for a remarkable and immersive cinematic experience.  IMAX combines specific high-resolution cameras with state-of-the-art projectors and a uniquely optimised auditorium to engulf you in the world of the biggest new releases.

The IMAX remastering process helps ensure every frame glistens with added levels of contrast and sharpness. This lends greater veracity and depth to every scene. Projection therefore feels crystal clear and unlike anything seen in a standard widescreen presentation. IMAX fully transforms every frame of a film to produce the best possible version of a filmmaker’s vision.

Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse is tailor-made for the IMAX format. Every frame pops with a dazzling array of colour and invention, often intermingling six different animation styles within a mere few seconds of film. In IMAX, the film feels like nothing less than a comic book come to life, offering fan-pleasing nirvana throughout.

Why is the sound of IMAX more dynamic than anywhere else?

IMAX auditoriums are equipped with a perfectly tuned integrated sound and speaker system for heart-pounding audio that will truly blow you away. Speakers are placed in specific areas around the auditorium to deliver unparalleled preciseness that enhances the level of immersion.

The frequency response of IMAX audio also enhances both higher notes and bass levels, meaning you can practically feel the impact of the sound from your seat.

Simply put, if you loved the eclectic and rhythmic soundtrack for Across the Spider-Verse the first time around, you'll love it even more when it surrounds you in your seat via IMAX. Daniel Pemberton's inventive and percussive score, building on his themes from Into the Spider-Verse, sits alongside a host of RnB and dubstep needle drops to keep the multiverse motoring along.
