Nothing can top IMAX film. All we get today is “Lie-Max” video projection.

Nothing commercially available at the moment can top IMAX film. But then, if IMAX didn’t move towards digital years ago, there would be no more IMAX of any kind. Ironic the much-derided digital system is what has kept 15/70 alive as long as it has been, wouldn’t you agree? Or are shades of grey too much for the the black and white viewpoints of the IMAX digital haters?

Nothing can top it…but if the studios won’t pay for prints, what is IMAX to do? Play “Elysium” in their 15/70 screens for almost 3 months and hope to survive?

If you think I’m joking…
