Remember PalmPilots? IMAX is using the tech to run Oppenheimer in movie theaters

Oppenheimer is set to be IMAX’s newest major blockbuster hit when it premiers on July 21, but it’s running on technology dating from the 1990s: a PalmPilot. Turns out that operators will use the old system to project the movie, and it’s sparked a flood of nostalgia online. 

The PalmPilot emulator had been spotted being used on an iPad in a TikTok video that IMAX released on July 14 about the engineering tweaks that have been had to be made to accommodate Oppenheimer’s three-hour runtime.
