I had basically no issues with ghosting or reflections with Resident Evil: The Final Chapter and Ghost in the Shell, and 3D brightness levels were great- better than 2D footage I saw for the films.

However, with anything here, but particularly 3D, I’d recommend getting seats in the middle of the row and not too close to the screen, and I’m not seeing Guardians in IMAX as it looks like all but the front two rows were sold out when I got tickets last week (with those other two films, they were maybe a quarter full so I could chose an ideal seat location).

so has the 3d imax improved? just wondering for before guardians of the galaxy

When Sony owned the Lincoln Square, several of its films had world premieres at this venue.

Probadly, because Disney owns the theatre. That a shame it wasn’t on all showing across the country.

The overture was included with the presentation at the El Capitan in LA.

The overture wasn’t in the regular release also.. Guess it was made for the soundtrack only

Dolby Cinema uses Dolby Atmos when the film is in.. Most IMAX films are also in Dolby Vision at Dolby Cinema. Selected RPX locations uses Dolby Atmos (IN NYC, EWalk, Kaufman and Court Street). Sheepshead Bay RPX uses Barco 12.1 sound system when the feature is in it.

they had a clip on youtube showing fan’s reaction to the movie @poland626 this movie is the first that filmed mostly on imax 3d cameras (digital).

@LeoOc: It looked really good. Also, with the expanded aspect ratio, the image nearly filled the entire screen.

Has anyone seen beauty and the beast in imax laser? How was it, it looked quite nice in regular IMAX.

April 4th they are hosting a IMAX event for Transformers. I believe this this be the second time something is shown that was shot in IMAX cameras. I think the Dunkirk prologue was the first.

Imax is the best experience for big movies. Some movies that were not shot in imax are specifically formatted for imax screens such as Dr. Strange and Beauty and the Beast. This is from the full camera instead of the cropped image used for regular theatrical release. This trend has been around since Skyfall and Tron Legacy popularized it. Ghostbusters, the remake, used it comically, and can be seen in the bluray release of said film.

RPX (along with other premium large formats like Dolby Cinema) are something theater chains came up with as alternatives to IMAX, but not the same thing, so they won’t have any IMAX exclusive bonuses such as expanded aspect ratios.

IMAX also does exclusive digital remastering and sound mixes for all the releases in the format, whereas RPX just works off the regular DCP masters/sound mixes I believe (Dolby Cinema though does get exclusive Dolby Vision masters for some titles, but not everything that plays in those theaters).

Thanks mhvbear. The aspect ratio in the RPX was 2.35

mhvbear on March 19, 2017 at 10:44 am

The IMAX version of “Beauty & the Beast” is being shown in 1.90:1 aspect ratio. Not the full IMAX screen but pretty close. 2.35:1 aspect ration in non IMAX theaters. Was disappointed that the overture on the soundtrack album was not included with the IMAX release.

On the Imax of Beauty and The Beast, was the film shown on the full screen? I went to Regal RPX and like Sully it was not it had the black bars at the top and bottom of the screen just like any scope film. Other then the sound being 7.0 two of the other theaters screens are much bigger. It’s a total waste of money to pay for a movie in THE RPX theater here. Is RPX different then Imax? BATB was film in large screen format so to me the full RPX screen should have been utilized.

@benpaz same here in Rockaway, where it’s playing Beauty and the Beast in 2d for the majority of the showtimes and 3d late at night. So far, imax beauty and the best has been selling out more than the 3d and 2d version as the imax version fills more of the screen than the widescreen version of the movie although said movie wasn’t shot on imax cameras.

BenPaz on March 17, 2017 at 3:16 pm

@bigjoe it is playing in both 3d and 2d here.

moviebuff82 on March 16, 2017 at 11:49 am

Sometimes AMC would show separate showtimes for imax movies switching from 3d to 2d.

Imax123 on March 16, 2017 at 7:49 am

Did you guys get to see the Dunkirk prologue attached to skull island ? I know the prologue was in 4K laser. When they played it with rogue one they did show the prologue in 4K laser and 70mm at this theatre. Which prologue had a better picture quality? The 70mm version or the 4K laser version ? Thanks : )

One week IMAX runs haven’t been uncommon since the company moved anyway from film prints (where the cost involved in making one necessitated a multi-week run). Particularly during busy release seasons like this with three big titles in consecutive weeks they will turn over quickly to try and show everything. Last year for instance Sully came out in September instead of a Summer release just because that time worked better for an IMAX run (and they wanted to give it a couple weeks as it was shot using IMAX digital cameras).

I do think films like The Fate of the Furious in April and Dunkirk in late summer will get longer runs due to lack of competition, and IMAX giving Nolan films special treatment in the latter case.

I get that Mike but Logan and Kong only get a week in the biggest Imax in the northeast? That’s retarted! I have to put Imax and the studios to blame in part as well.
