Newark IMAX theater makes streaming sports history

Published Friday April 8

NEWARK, Calif. – For fans, who could not make it out to Oracle Arena to watch the Oakland Warriors take on the San Antonio Spurs, the next best thing was watching the NBA game on a IMAX screen. Some 250 fans packed the AMC IMAX theater at NewPark Mall in Newark to make history.

The sold-out crowd helped increase foot traffic, which the mall has not seen in awhile.

Warriors fans lined up as early as four in the afternoon in the evening at the AMC IMAX theatre for the 7:30 in the afternoon tipoff. It was the first-ever live streamed sporting event in the country at an IMAX theatre. Abundant fans remarked they never set foot inside NewPark Mall let alone Newark before.
