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 – http://optics.org/news/5/10/43. This is still my favorite theatre in Nashville to watch all my movies, it’s just a nice place.

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.

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?

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

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.

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

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!

I’m hearing the theatre is supposed to open later this year. Regal’s Bellevue 12 location was also flooded, and is still closed. The flood here wiped out nearly 1/3 of Regal’s screens here…. that’s alot of lost revenue. Has anyone heard of when they are going to reopen for sure?

According to this article, the theater is still closed because of the May flooding and Regal is not saying anything about if or when it may ever reopen: View link

Why would someone take a picture of the back of the 20 plex.I got a feeling it looks like our Regal 20 here in Augusta.

This theater was heavily damaged in the Great Flood of 2010.

Me and my parents went to here while on vacation. The cinema is pretty decent and it had been sponsored by AT&T due to their new “Turn off your Cell Phone” policy. And the Tennessee Titans were also mentioned during the movie previews. As Meg said there is an IMAX theater and like all other IMAX theaters, you are not allowed to bring any non-cinema food to the auditorium except a bottle of water.

In addition to their IMAX auditorium, the theater also has a state of the art digital projector in theater 12. The picture clarity on the digital presentation is really something to see!
