Nationwide fewer IMAX movies are being shown in 3D because attendance in 3D has declined. I checked the show times, and all I could find for Star Wars here in IMAX is 3D so I think you’re good.

I was surprised when I showed up to see Justice League on Saturday that it wasn’t in 3D. Does anyone know why Justice League wasn’t in 3D Imax? More importantly, can anyone confirm that Last Jedi will indeed be in 3D? I’ve had my tickets purchased on the first day they were available.

A dunkirk display was recently installed to promote the reissue of the film for Oscar consideration .

Hello-

I thank Al A. for his reply. but there is one equation I guess you would call it that I still don’t understand. I can’t tell you how many big highly promoted films I’ve seen on opening weekend where the auditorium was rather sparsely filled. and when I hear the film had a BIG opening weekend I go Where? then when I see a big highly promoted film on opening weekend and the auditorium is packed I expect the film to have a huge opening weekend but it flops. I don’t get it.

bigjoe59, the studio announced an expected $110 million opening. That figure was low based on other recent Batman films opening at results much higher than that. The resulting $94 million opening is therefore considered a ‘stumble’.

Hello-

I thank moviebuff82 for your reply. I thought it was a wayyyyy better film than either MOS or BVS so go figure. but I don’t the audience size/opening weekend numbers. I have seen big highly promoted films here where right before the film actually begins I can tell there are very few people in the auditorium. so I figure the opening weekend will be on the downside yet it makes a truckload of $$$. likewise I have seen big highly promoted films here where the auditorium was packed and the crowd waiting for the next showing was substantial yet the film had a disappointing opening weekend. I don’t get it.

Hello-

a question. I liked Justice League wayyyyyyyyy better than Warner’s first two films in its reboot of the Superman franchise- Man of Steel and Superman vs Batman: Dawn of Justice. in fact the auditorium I saw it in was maybe not sold out but rather well filled. the crowd in the waiting area for the next show was a damn good size too. so Mon. morning when I read in a Yahoo news blurb that the film “stumbled” I was surprised considering the two crowds noted above. then this morning I read the opening weekend was $96 mil. how is that “stumbling”?

the ‘Justice League’ denotation on imdb is wrong, it’s 1.85 on the DCP, the IMAX ‘DCP’ and the 70mm print.

@xbs2034, Dolby does have good projectors, but my concerns is they mess with the original movie sounds. Making them louder and more “buzzing”.

FYI, I heard that some directors adjust their sound at IMAX Laser screenings.

@everyone, I just saw Justice League both at AMC Citywalk (IMAX Laser on True IMAX Screen) and TCL Chinese (IMAX Laser on Scope screen), I notice they seem to be shown with same ratio around 1.89:1.

And since Justice League is 2.35:1 (on imdb), does that means they crop out the sides?! What the heck!?

(oddly, the AMC that was doing super well with those re-releases, sometimes all but selling out their 300+ seat, 56' screen auditorium, way far out in the NJ suburbs, seems to have had recently had AMC pull the classic release series from them and now AMC seems to be mostly showing in the tiny theaters and ones where the series did not do half (or even, at times, 1/10th) as well, baffling and annoying decision)

@bigjoe59 – part of it is just 20th anniversary. Lots of movies have been getting a re-release for some anniversary. Just over the last year they have given semi-wide release to titles like: The Godfather, Breakfast At Tiffany’s, The Princess Bride, Dirty Dancing, Carousel, Pretty In Pink, Close Encounters Of The Third Kind, E.T., Blade Runner and so on.

Basically Dolby Vision uses 4K laser projectors with high dynamic range. Some of the big advantages they tout are a wider color spectrum and I believe 5x the contrast ratio of standard digital projectors.

A lot of people are big fans of them, and I do think the black levels on the projectors are probably the best I’ve seen. But overall I haven’t been as impressed with them as formats like IMAX laser or 70mm film (though, to be fair, I’ve seen fewer titles on Dolby Vision).

Hello-

I thank xbs2034 for their reply. but I’m still wondering if I were sitting in the theater watching it what difference would I notice? I figure there must be some significant difference if they’re bothering to theatrically release it.

The Loews has Dolby Atmos sound system (not even sure the film is even getting an Atmos sound remix, Cameron’s ad for the film just mentions the Dolby Vision visual update), but not a Dolby Vision projector. It will be playing at the AMC Empire though.

Bigjoe59- Titanic has been remastered for Dolby Vision projectors. It won’t play here, since it is only playing in Dolby Cinema screens.

15MM70 we run a digital back up but after a few hiccups on Friday it has not been needed since.

Dunkirk might return that month too for awards season..

Hello-

since i’m guessing it will play here does anyone know what’s distinctive/different about the remastered Titanic that will be released the first week of Dec.?

markp Thanks for that info. Really interesting regarding the Fox-Warners agreement of 70MM equipment, didn’t know studios lent competing studios their equipment. Thought maybe AMC Lincoln purchased a 70MM projector since they already have a 70MM Imax projector. Did you just have one 70MM MOTOE print, or do you have a backup as well?
