Does anyone know what the proper dimensions are for a auditorium that shows large format or Imax films is? Screen size is approx. 52' by 72'.

Any help would be appreciated.

The large format vendors like IMAX generally provide theatre design services. But in general, a 15-perf 70mm format allows much closer seating than the 2 to 4 image height distance specified by standard SMPTE 196M for 35mm screening rooms. I would guess most IMAX designs have prime seats in the range of 0.5 to 1.5 times the height of the image.
