Charlie and the Chocolate Factory: The IMAX Experience
Director Tim Burton brings his vividly imaginative style to the Roald Dahl classic about eccentric chocolatier Willy Wonka (Johnny Depp) and Charlie (Freddie Highmore), a good-hearted boy from a poor family who lives in the shadow of Wonka's extraordinary factory. Long isolated from his own family, Wonka launches a worldwide contest to select an heir to his candy empire. Five lucky children, including Charlie, draw golden tickets from Wonka chocolate bars and win a guided tour of the legendary candy-making facility that no outsider has seen in 15 years. Dazzled by one amazing sight after another, Charlie is drawn into Wonka's fantastic world.
CHARLIE AND THE CHOCOLATE FACTORY is an adaptation of the best- selling Roald Dahl novel and had a simultaneous release to IMAX® and conventional 35mm theatres on July 15th, 2005. The film was digitally re-mastered for The IMAX Experience® using proprietary IMAX DMR (Digital Re-mastering) technology.
