Official List of IMAX Theaters Showing THE DARK KNIGHT RISES Prologue Starting December 16th

Back in October, we learned the exciting news that Christopher Nolan would be debuting the six-minute prologue from The Dark Knight Rises in front of Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol on IMAX (starting December 16th). It was definitely great news, but then we heard that the prologue would only be shown at IMAX theaters housing a 70mm projector. Well, today that news has been confirmed and along with it comes a list of participating theaters. It’s neat that Warner Bros. is giving a peek at the film this early, but it’s unfortunate for those who live nowhere near a 70mm IMAX theater (especially given that many theater across the country have been converted to the digital format).

While I’d like to hope that Nolan and Co. will make the prologue available online or elsewhere, I wouldn’t bet on it. Included in the release of the theater list is a statement from Nolan touting the IMAX format specifically in 70mm. At least we’re getting a new trailer for the film in front of Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows. Hit the jump to find out if your theater makes the cut, and leap with joy or retreat in tears accordingly. The Dark Knight Rises opens July 20th, 2012.

“Our experience on The Dark Knight shooting and projecting IMAX 15 perf 65mm/70mm film was inspiring. The immersive quality of the image goes beyond any other filmmaking tool available, and in revisiting Gotham, we were determined to shoot even more of the movie in this unique format. Giving the fans an early look at an IMAX sequence is a great way to draw attention to what I believe will be an incredible way to experience our story when it comes out next summer.” – Christopher Nolan
