IMAX CORP. EARNS ACADEMY AWARD FOR TECHNICAL ACHIEVEMENT.

Byline: City News Service

IMAX Corp. was awarded the only 1996 Oscar statuette for scientific and technical achievement, the motion picture academy announced Monday.

The award cites IMAX's innovations in creating and developing a method of filming and exhibiting large-format, wide-angle motion pictures. It is an ``upgrade'' of a Scientific and Engineering Award originally presented to IMAX Corp. in 1985, said John Pavlik, a spokesman for the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences.

The statuette, and a dozen certificates to individuals for scientific and technical achievements, will be presented March 1 at the Regent Beverly Wilshire in Beverly Hills.

Scientific and Technical Awards are given ``for devices, methods, formulas, discoveries or inventions of special and outstanding value to the arts and sciences of motion pictures and that also have a proven history of use in the motion picture industry.''
