Regal Opry Mills 20 & IMAX

The Opry Mills is the newest multiplex to date to take root in Nashville soil. The cinema resides on part of the site of what was once the Opryland Amusement Park, a popular tourist attraction that was leveled a few years ago and replaced with a shopping mall. The Opry Mills is a very nice theatre, equipped with stadium seating, THX and giant screens. The Opry Mills also has the largest screen (IMAX) in the mid-state region.

The theater is expected to formally open on November 18, 2011 after some preview events:

Before the IMAX shows, they play selections from the upcoming movie’s soundtrack over those powerful speakers. I was there the Saturday of Star Trek’s opening weekend and when they played the theme to the TV show, the packed house went crazy, hummed along and applauded when it was done. What a cinema! Can’t wait for the big reopening!

Well, the theatre is open along with Opry Mills Mall! It’s a great place to visit!

I hired and trained the IMAX staff when this theater opened. Nice guys, but all gone now. Rumor has it that the 1570 film projector was removed/decommissioned after the second “Dark Knight” film earlier this year. It now has a “fauxmax” digital IMAX projector. Management did nothing but complain about the fact the projectionists got paid more than they did…running a 4 million dollar projection system. I will never enter that theater again.

Regal has been downgrading to D-IMAX circuit-wide. It sucks on huge screens where all the pixels are showing.

Went to see Star Trek Into Darkness at Opry Mills last week. Indeed it is digital “IMAX.” Complete with the Regal cinema video advertisements before showtime and then 15-20 minutes of ads and trailers before the movie. The presentation was fine and all, but it seems kinda pointless with having the screen that size and only filling up a small portion of it when the IMAX scenes started. So it’s confirmed that they don’t even have the 15/70 film system at all there now? I can understand them also having a digital system for times when the studio will only send out a digital version, but will they no longer be showing any real 70mm IMAX? After having spent all that money to rebuild it and install it and putting the giant screen in, they aren’t going to use it?

I’ve discovered from the old Chief Projectionist that took over when I left that the 1570 equipment is there. Sad part is, there’s no one on staff there who can operate it.

I just need to point out that I see some uneducated comments about the 15/70 IMAX film projector at the Opry Mills IMAX theatre. I was just there recently and watched Interstellar presented in 15/70 format, someone there obliviously knows how to operate the equipment and the projector must be there. Now, if only the studios and IMAX would get on board and produce more films in 15/70 again we would get to enjoy that humongous screen like it was meant to be. The sad part is that digital technology limits the image size. Rumor has it that visible-range laser projection is on the horizon and will accommodate digital images large enough to fill IMAX screens the size at Opry Mills – This is still my favorite theatre in Nashville to watch all my movies, it’s just a nice place.
