Great Britain has decibel standards and they send out officials to measure theatres when many customers complain. I don’t know what U.S. laws say about this.

IMDB lists some scenes as 1:43 http://www.imdb.com/title/tt2527336/technical?mode=desktop

Seems right since Force Awakens also had one scene in 1:43.

@FAShaffi – “according to this link, no 70MM IMAX print for this theater for The Last Jedi:( not surprised, but still disappointed, although I will still check it out here because it’ll be in 1:43”

I don’t think it will be in 1:43 at all will it?

@Darth – “Alpine, go have a cup of warm milk and go to sleep. I’ve been going to the most aggressive presentations of movies ever for many years. Do your research on damaging decibel levels, and compare it to what you experience in an Imax theater. Attending one single rock concert without ear plugs can do far more damage than seeing 100 Imax movies. I’m sure you can find a second rate theater with an out-dated sound system that won’t aggravate your overly sensitive hearing.”

Sounds like your hearing is already damaged. Or maybe you have bad genes and have crappy ears?

And have you seen the incredible dB many theaters, IMAX or not, although IMAX and Dolby ones are never on the reasonable side, are hitting these days, sometimes for extremely long, continuous stretches? I’ve heard numerous people say they come out of theaters with ringing and not being to hear well and shouting for an hour or two afterwards.

I don’t like outdated crappy sound with the treble spiked and everything crummy, I like top quality sound at reasonable levels, which actually let your ears hear all of the quality. I have $600 headphones, $1000 headphone amp, nice speakers, etc. And I don’t it whisper quiet either, just reasonable levels and also with some dynamics where they don’t have the entire movie, dialogue and all set to 10.

The Last Jedi was shot mostly on 35mm film anamorphiclly & was scanned @ 4k. I believe Disney has an arrangement with kodak to shoot Ep9 on film as well.

I agree with ridethectrain. No need for 70mm when you got laser.

don’t need 70mm for imax when you got laser projection. Star Wars is shot in digital. Finally since the last Star Wars was the old dlp

@AlAlvarez, please tell me what reason you pay extra money to attend movies in IMAX? Is it for the higher quality popcorn?

“the most aggressive presentations of movies ever”?

Is that really ‘a thing’, on planet Darth?

Exactly! It’s so crazy. Insane sound and you still can’t hear some of the dialogue! Seriously, Nolan!

And I don’t think they give the closed caption glasses for non-digital showings. (Or do they? Please let me know if they do.)

I actually kind of like the rumbling and the loud music BUT not when it’s for the entire movie. One or two action scenes to create drama – sure. But if you have seats rumbling at every 2 seconds it actually loses drama.

Still the IMAX screen is so huge I still find it worth it.

…and with all the sound hype, the dialogue is STILL muffled. Or perhaps we have a generation of actors with elocution disabilities.

There is a happy medium between babies' nights and ridiculous sound levels. People were pretty damn entertained in the theaters in the 80s and early 90s before the levels started getting pumped up nuts at many places.

The Clifton, NJ THX auditoriums used to be great in that they dialed the volume down each time after THX left and you get left with amazing quality speakers and nice loud, envelopming sound but sound that never hurt your ears, presented no risk for hearing loss. It was just nice and reasonable levels. Didn’t shaek the structure and cause distortion, wasn’t so loud that your ears had to try to retune, just let you hear perfect audio a reasonable, not super quiet or anything, level.

It’s a damn shame it’s so hard to find a place like that now.

anyway mock all you want with your pathetic mommies and babies nonsense, tool

@bigjoe59 – wouldn’t the IMAX be better than the Loews? Much bigger screen (even though the Loews is quite big) and laser projection (2D so whether or not they did fix the 3D glasses here doesn’t even come into play in this case).

The insane levels are due to panic and reading the audience wrong, they think that unless they toss in random nonsense they will be doomed by smartphones just because a few yahoos can’t live without hearing damage and flash, boom, bang instead of actual cinema.

They forget how many they have driven out of the cinemas with the over the top volume and back into home theaters. These people don’t speak up as often.

@Darth_Vader444 – get back to us in 10-20 years when you are using a hearing aid and your ears are ringing, maybe you’ll be the one crying then….

Hello-

I’m hedging the bet that Blade Runner 2049 will play both the Imax auditorium and the Loews downstairs. now on any of the online ticket services how can I tell which showing is in the Loews auditorium?

Darth_Vader444
Darth_Vader444 on October 4, 2017 at 8:54 am

Contact your local theater to see when they have “Mom and Baby day.” It’s a day that they turn down the sound levels, squelch the dynamic range, and lower the projector’s brightness so Mom can watch a movie while baby sleeps. That might do the trick for all you cry babies whining dynamic audio being too loud. Wahh Wahhhh Wahhhh!!! :(

Noise is what bad filmmakers resort to when they don’t know how to create tension otherwise. That is the real problem. Smart theatre managers lower the sound levels after the techies leave, or you end up with half the audience in the lobby demanding refunds.

Darth_Vader444 on October 3, 2017 at 6:37 am

OMG please. Enough with the moaning about it being too loud. Hopefully nobody will listen and the IMAX people still continue to give us aggressive and thunderous audio. You experience more damaging decibel levels taking the subway every day than you do seeing movies in an IMAX theater.

You don’t wan’t transients so loud that you wince in pain. And I think everyone knows that many movies keep the volume up nearer the max levels for very extended period of time. Some movies even have regular dialogue making you wince at times.
