"Ahead Of Its Time" aims to tell the story of Dublin's original IMAX cinema, from Conception to Closure, through the eyes and views of the original staff members, including: Managers, Supervisors, Projectionists and Floor Staff.
A unique workplace where friendships, relationships and even a few marriages were created and lasted since it opened almost 20 years ago!
IMAX was brought to Ireland by the Sheridan Group, who developed and built the Parnell Centre from a wasteland site, to the successful entertainment complex that still stands today. A first of it's kind in Ireland, the IMAX cinema opened in June, 1998, and closed in October, 2000.
"Ahead Of Its Time" gives a unique insight from the staff members into how the cinema was developed, how it ran, and ultimately why they believe it closed.
I'm actually a former IMAX staff member, which led me to a decade long career as a Cinema Projectionist and a Filmmaker. This sparked an interest in telling the story of Dublin's original IMAX cinema, the people who worked there, and the unrelenting belief and love they had, and still have, for a cinema that only lasted a short time.
