Game of Thrones will soon become the first TV series showcased on IMAX theaters across the country.

Game of Thrones In IMAX

Starting on Jan. 23, the final two episodes of Game of Thrones’ fourth season – “The Watchers on the Wall” and the Emmy-nominated “The Children” – will hit 150 IMAX theaters for one week, reported Entertainment Weekly. The showings will feature an exclusive trailer for the upcoming season.

“The cinematic brilliance and grand scope of the series is perfect for the IMAX format,” said Pamela Levine, chief marketing officer at HBO. “We are always looking to provide fans with new and exciting ways to experience the show and viewing two key episodes, along with the new trailer, on such an impressive platform makes for a great event.”

The two Game of Thrones episodes will be digitally re-mastered to be compatible with the IMAX format. The medieval fantasy series, with its dragons and multiple lavish locations, is a perfect fit for an IMAX treatment.

“We couldn’t think of a series more fitting than Game of Thrones to be the first presented in IMAX,” said Greg Foster, senior executive vice president, IMAX Corp. “The scope and production quality of the show is quite remarkable, which will be highlighted even further in select IMAX locations—allowing fans, as never before, to become a part of author George R. R. Martin’s world that [showrunners] David Benioff and D. B. Weiss created for HBO.

Foster added, “It has the action, storyline and epic nature that our fans seek in IMAX and we’re thrilled to team with HBO and our longtime partners at Warner Brothers to offer audiences a chance to experience it in the ultimate theatre setting joined by other fans of the series.”

Thus far, HBO has only teased at the fifth season of Game of Thrones with brief clips from prior seasons. A preview for the forthcoming season is slated to air on the network in February. The season five premiere will hit the small screen sometime in April.
