Theater screen for sale

posted by Michael Zoldessy on March 5, 2012 at 9:30 am

A local AMC Theater upgraded one of their theater screens to an IMAX and gave a friend of mine the 38’ x 16’ theater screen that they took down. Here is a craigslist link to the information/pictures and my email is . Looking for around $750 for it. It weighs around 100 lbs so delivery is way too expensive…recommend pickup.

Just goes to show how watered-down the IMAX brand has become: they are installing “IMAX” in an auditorium that could only handle a 38'x16' screen.

You’re right, Mark… and it’s always amazing how they’re able to fit a LieMax ratio screen into a space that once housed a side-masked Scope screen.

Speaking of “LieMax” while I agree that it’s not in the same league as full-scale 70mm IMAX projection. Let’s not forget that even the traditional IMAX venues are screening mostly converted 35mm features that are often projected digitally. On the plus side: “LieMax” auditoriums have much larger than average size screens, 3D images are far brighter and more lifelike than the dim pictures standard digital projection provides, and the excellent audio is monitored for quality directly from the IMAX offices. A higher standard of presentation, regardless of what it’s called, is nothing to be sneezed at.
