THE WORLD’S GREATEST ROCK BAND ROLLS INTO IMAX®
Shine A Light: The IMAX Experience® opens April 4, 2008 at  AutoNation® IMAX® Theater located at Museum of Discovery and Science

March 25, 2008 – Can’t get no satisfaction? We have three words for you – STONES, SCORSESE and IMAX! On April 4th, moviegoers, music-lovers and fans everywhere will have the “best seat in the house” to witness the world’s most legendary rock band, The Rolling Stones! AutoNation® IMAX® Theater audiences will be immersed in both sight and sound when they experience Academy-Award winning filmmaker, Martin Scorsese's Rolling Stones concert film, Shine A Light, in IMAX, with larger-than-life images and state-of-the-art digital surround sound! One thing is for certain – satisfaction is guaranteed. Shine a Light is locally sponsored by JM Lexus Certified Pre-Owned Superstore.

Martin Scorsese’s concert documentary Shine a Light will show the world the Rolling Stones as they’ve never been seen before. Filming at the famed Beacon Theatre in New York City in fall 2006, Scorsese assembled a legendary team of cinematographers to capture the raw energy of the legendary band.

Oscar®-winning cinematographer Robert Richardson (“The Aviator,” “JFK”) supervised the camera team comprised of several highly acclaimed directors of photography, including Oscar® winner John Toll (“The Last Samurai,” “Braveheart”) Oscar® winner Andrew Lesnie (“The Lord of the Rings” trilogy, “King Kong”), Oscar® nominee Stuart Dryburgh (“The Piano,” “The Painted Veil”), Oscar® nominee Robert Elswit (“Magnolia,” “Good Night and Good Luck”), Oscar® nominee Emmanuel Lubezki (“Lemony Snicket’s A Series of Unfortunate Events,” “Sleepy Hollow”) and Ellen Kuras (“Summer of Sam,” “Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind”). The film was edited by David Tedeschi, who most recently worked with Scorsese on the acclaimed Bob Dylan documentary “No Direction Home: Bob Dylan.”

Shine A Light has been digitally re-mastered into the unparalleled image and sound quality of The IMAX Experience® through IMAX DMR (Digital Re-mastering) technology. IMAX creates an environment that puts audiences in the movie (or at the concert, in this case). Shine A Light: The IMAX Experience will debut concurrently with the nationwide release in conventional theatres from Paramount Classics on April 4th.

Financed by Steve Bing's Shangri-La Entertainment and longtime Rolling Stones tour promoter Michael Cohl's Concert Promotions International, the film was produced by Victoria Pearman, Michael Cohl, Zane Weiner and Steve Bing. The executive producers are Stones members Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Charlie Watts and Ronnie Wood, with Jane Rose serving as co-executive producer.
