Darren Aronofsky’s ‘Pi’ to Re-Release in IMAX for One Night Only

A24 has announced that it plans to re-release Darren Aronofsky‘s Pi in IMAX for one night only, on Pi Day (3.14), for a special IMAX live screening and Q&A of the movie. Aronofsky will be a part of the event alongside cinematographer Matthew Libatique, composer Clint Mansell, actor Sean Gullette, and other special guests. The film stars Gullette as “a mathematician who becomes obsessed with searching for patterns in the universe as part of a quest for meaning.”

In a statement, Aronofsky stated on the re-release and restoration that “25 years ago, when we were just kids at Sundance, I was inspired by my hero Jim Jarmusch to fight for the rights of the film to return to the filmmakers. It took almost a quarter of a century, but time flies. In anticipation of this moment, we went back to the original black and white reversal 16mm film and scanned it at 8K. We also turned our original stereo mix into an Atmos experience. Everyone thought we were a little crazy but the film has never looked or sounded better. I am excited to team up with A24 and release this on Pi Day in IMAX. I look forward to seeing everyone back in the theater soon.”
