Stones film heads for IMAX screens

NEW YORK, Mar 31, 2008 (UPI via COMTEX) -- The Rolling Stones concert film "Shine a Light," which was shot at New York's Beacon Theatre, is to be released on IMAX, as well as conventional movie screens.

Asked how the IMAX experience will be different for the band's fans, Mick Jagger, frontman for the aging rock band quipped, "It will be very large."

"Some slight imperfections might be revealed," Jagger warned reporters in New York Sunday. "The funny thing is though, really, that (director Martin Scorsese,) after looking at all of the options, decided he wanted to make this small, intimate movie and I said, 'Well, the laugh is that, Marty, in the end, it's going to be blown up into this huge IMAX thing, so the intimate movie is done in IMAX.' But it looks good in IMAX."

Since the film shows the longtime band mates still exude loads of energy on stage, one journalist pressed the rockers to reveal what vitamins they take and workout regimen they embrace.

"No gym, no vitamins," Jagger said. "We just do it. We just get out there."

"Shine a Light" is due in theaters Friday.
