In the wake of being shortlisted as one of the remaining 15 documentaries in consideration for a Best Documentary Feature Oscar, E. Chai Vasarhelyi and Jimmy Chin’s “Free Solo” will get a one-week engagement in IMAX theaters beginning on January 11.
The documentary follows free solo climber Alex Honnold as he prepares for an unprecedented feat – climbing the face of one of the world’s most famous rock formations, the 3,200-foot El Capitan in Yosemite National Park, without ropes.
The IMAX release of “Free Solo” will be digitally remastered into the image and sound quality for the IMAX experience with proprietary IMAX DMR (Digital Re-mastering) technology.
