The IMAX screen in the theatre at Melbourne Museum is now officially the largest in the world, having successfully Bradburied its way to the lead in front of the just-demolished actual world's largest in Sydney.

One of the things Sydney has always held claim to -- alongside the Harbour Bridge and the Opera House and Centrepoint Tower -- has been the IMAX building in the city's Darling Harbour. Stretching 35.7 metres wide and 29.7 metres tall, the IMAX screen inside is -- or was -- the largest in the world, with three times the surface area of a regular IMAX (and, importantly, bigger than Melbourne's). Now, the IMAX Cinema and retail stores around it will soon close for three years, and it'll be demolished to be replaced by a slightly smaller screen -- albeit inside a much fancier building.
