Los Angeles, New York, San Francisco and Toronto will host the film for a limited one-week engagement on Friday, August 24.

Nolan and Oscar-winning cinematographer Wally Pfister pioneered the use of Imax 70mm photography in filmmaking, making The Dark Knight as the first major feature to use Imax cameras.

Nolan had previously tested the format’s massive scale with an Imax digital remastering of Batman Begins.

In the years since, movies such as “Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen,” “Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol,” “Star Trek Into Darkness” and “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” have followed, including Nolan’s own “The Dark Knight Rises,” “Interstellar” and “Dunkirk.”

Damien Chazelle’s “First Man” and Patty Jenkins’ “Wonder Woman 1984” are among upcoming IMAX releases.
