Submission + - Replacing the world's largest IMAX screen (

lukehopewell1 writes: "IMAX Sydney is replacing its screen — the largest in the world — at a cost of $250,000.

It weighs over 800 kilograms. It will take 350 kilograms of paint to cover over 12 days. It covers over 1000 square metres. It takes 31 riggers just to lift it into place. It took 12 months of planning and $250,000 to install.

See the photos and the behind-the-scenes video of the install."
