A24 Bringing ‘Midsommar’ Director’s Cut to IMAX Theaters on June 20th

In the wake of bringing Ari Aster’s Hereditary into IMAX theaters this past March, the A24 x IMAX venture continues with the IMAX release of Aster’s follow-up film, Midsommar.

A24 and IMAX have announced the next three A24 films that will be available in the IMAX Experience® for its monthly screening series, including the Midsommar Director’s Cut!

Here’s the full lineup…

  • Ari Aster’s Midsommar (The Director’s Cut) on Thursday, June 20 
  • Mat Whitecross’ Oasis: Supersonic on Tuesday, July 16  
  • The Daniels’ Everything Everywhere All At Once on Wednesday, August 28

The A24 x IMAX Present screening series continues every month for the next year, with IMAX digitally remastering classics from A24’s premium library of more than 140 feature films.

Screenings will be held across more than 300 IMAX locations nationwide and select locations internationally. Tickets are on sale at www.imax.com/a24

How does the Midsommar Director’s Cut differ from the film’s theatrical release? Julieann Stipidis explained here on BD back in 2019, “After witnessing the more comprehensive version of Aster’s vision in this (nearly) three-hour film, I prefer this cut in spades.”

The review continued, “Impressively, the Midsommar Director’s Cut manages to move more swiftly and efficiently than the previous version does. With added situational context, dialogue, humor, and foreshadowing, any remote slowness of the original cut is modified to put the viewer into an entertained, fixated trance.”

“While there may not be anything in terms of additional violence and gore that we hadn’t seen in the original cut, there is a feeling of more vitriol and graphicness that Midsommar 2.0 possesses,” Julieann also noted in her rave review of the expanded Director’s Cut.
