One of the greatest adventures of all time

Hailed as one of the greatest human adventures ever filmed for IMAX® and giant screen theaters, Everest is the dramatic, true story of an expedition of four climbers on their journey to the summit of Mount Everest, just days after the infamous 1996 tragedy in which eight climbers lost their lives in a deadly storm, a story chronicled in Jon Krakauer’s best-selling book Into Thin Air. It is also the story of the world’s tallest mountain and the Sherpa culture and tradition that permeates the Everest experience. Originally released in 1998 to blockbuster success and now digitally remastered for a new generation, Everest is above all else a story of triumph over adversity and of the true power and resilience of the human spirit.

“What the large-format IMAX screen was made for: a breathtaking climb to the top of Mount Everest that reveals the world’s highest mountain in all of its awesome, perilous grandeur.”

— Entertainment Weekly

The climbers

20_EVEREST-ed
Ed Viesturs

At the age of 26, Araceli Segarra became the first Spanish woman to reach the summit of Everest.

Sumiyo Tsuzuki
A native of Japan, Tsuzuki made a third summit attempt on Everest during film production. After cracking a rib from altitude-induced coughing, Tsuzuki turned back at the South Summit and oversaw preparations for the other climbers’ descent at Camp IV.

Everest…is not only a visually glorious and absorbing film and a story of hope and hubris; it is also an amazing feat of filmmaking.”

Filming on Mount Everest

When the Everest filmmakers set out to take an IMAX camera to the top of Mount Everest, everyone said it was impossible. Every extra ounce of weight a climber carries reduces vital stores of energy and adds to the risk of failure or death. But on May 23, 1996, filmmakers David Breashears, Robert Schauer, and a team of Sherpas recorded the first-ever IMAX images from the summit of Mount Everest, resulting in some of the most spectacular images ever seen on the giant screen.
