Starting April 5, you can enjoy The First Slam Dunk in an IMAX theater as well. IMAX theaters not only have the largest screens that you can watch based on a structure that is designed to immerse the audience into what’s on the screen, but also have an amazing sound system that maximizes the feeling that things in the screens are happening right in front of your eyes. This will provide yet another special experience for Slam Dunk fans as they can watch cartoon characters with incredible clarity on a big screen and hear the amazing sound effects of the basketballs bouncing off the floor, shoes skidding on the court, and balls hitting the net as they go through the hoop.
