For those who don’t want to see Thor in fake 3D and Liemax 3D, there’s a 2D version.

I went to see Fast Five last night at a nearly packed house in IMAX. Prior to each showing they have a line barrier for those wait in line to get their seats after they purchase the ticket. Once we got in, I sat all the way up to the second-to-back row of the theater, in middle row. The preshow frame was projected smaller on the screen, more to the upper left corner of the screen rather than fill the IMAX screen. During transitions from preshow to don’t talk on the phone, there was a blue screen, which was kinda annoying. The trailers didn’t use up the full ratio of the imax screen, just in scope. The movie looked and sounded good on the IMAX screen, and the audience behaved and cheered well. Watch after the main credits for a bonus scene!!!

This weekend, Fast Five will crush the competition. I plan on seeing this movie in IMAX tomorrow night if it’s not sold out. Even though it’s not filmed in IMAX, I can be sucked into the picture and car noises amped up to the max.

Well I was just at the mall and peeked in to set what was on the IMAX (they have nothing listed as IMAX past the 1PM showing of Born Wild 3D) and it sure looked like Water For Elephants on the IMAX screen to me. I’m sure WFE is not playing on any of the true IMAX screens but in the digital theaters they sometimes swap around as fit. They don’t feel Born Wild 3D does enough business for the evening shows now so they need to make use of one of the larger seating capacities and there are no other IMAX films out so they just put whatever they feel fills seats I think and it seems like they decided on WFE, at least for this Saturday evening.

If I’m correct, Fast Five will be taking over the IMAX screen at Rockaway 16, not Water for Elephants. Is WFE playing on any IMAX screen?

HOpefully DisneyNature comes out with its first IMAX feature since most of its releases are 2D 35mm features.

Unfortunately it looks like Water For Elephants takes over the IMAX screen and not African Cats once Born Wild 3D’s shows for the day are over. I think AFrican Cats would make much better use of the large IMAX screen since it probably has dumb Disney narration and the visuals are all where it is at.

Other than Thor, advance tickets are on sale for Pirates 4, which was shot in 3D. I’ll probably see it in RealD 3D rather than pay more for IMAX 3D, which is essentially a blown-up version of the scope film.

Not yet, Justin…probably this week along with “BTBW” on IMAX. Thanx for the Real or Fake website.

Awesome pre-movie short featuring Scrat, a teaser for Ice Age 4.

I noticed that when I went to see Rio in 3D. Great use of 3D as it was animated for 3D rather being converted. JJD, have you seen “Rio”? It’s the best animated film of 2011, until Kung Fu Panda 2 comes out, probably watching it in reald 3d. Hoodwinked 2 looks awful. Dolphin Tale is Ashley Judd and Morgan Freeman’s first 3D movie as movie stars, and it looks interesting. A good website for checking out which movie is real 3D or not is http://realorfake3d.com/

Probably. They’re also using the liemax screen to project Scream 4 on the supersized screen, much like the digital way of showing a smaller movie for which the Lincoln Square did when they show non-IMAX movies.

Maybe African Cats?? It seems the showtimes for that start right after Born Wild 3D IMAX showings end? It’s weird that they have a second listing of african cats for two earlier shows but they are already all grayed out, maybe the early showings in the smallest theater they pre-sold out to school groups or something?? And then show it off on their largest screen for the later showings?

Showtimes are up for this weekend…only three showtimes each day for Born to be Wild 3D IMAX and that’s it. Wonder what the other showtimes will be used for?

Wow, not many. You’d think they would try to make 4k for all. So far True Grit is the only 4k master I’ve seen then.

I’m not sure if Top Gun is going to be 4k. It’s not on the list. A couple people said it will be but I can find nothing to back that up.

How many movies have been mastered in 4k recently? All of them or only a few?

moviebuff82 on April 19, 2011 at 3:04 pm

All of them with the exception of the liemax.

Which screens numbers support 4k?

Yup. Only at AMC theatres. Has anyone seen a 4k movie at this theater? If so how is it?
