I’m going to check it out on the second weekend. Will report back if no one else has by that time.

Fascinating that Christie got the first theatrical demo of laser projection and not Barco. This theater needs it. I came here last week to see OZ in Dolby Atmos. There was no trailer for Dolby Atmos, the staff had no idea if it was playing (even though it was advertised), and it even seemed like the bass and right surrounds were so muted you could barley make them out. Also, the left corner of the screen was way under lit and I had the privilege of paying $17.50 to experience one of the worst presentations i have ever seen.

I will try and check out this new laser Demo next week and report back if I make it. I swore I would never go back, but darn it, now i am curious.

I was able to check out the new laser projection demo in the ETX auditorium yesterday. From my earlier post, you can tell I was not a fan of this locations' ETX screen. It was nice to actually see the Dolby ATMOS trailer played, and I did notice the sound was much more intense then it was last week, and the extra surrounds were quite noticeable.

As far as the Laser projection, it is different. First off, it is much much brighter. So bright, that at times the light coming from the booth hits your 3D glasses and it seems like someone has their smartphone on in the row behind you. The picture though, was phenomenal! This was a crappy film (g.I.Joe 2) that had a 3D conversion, and yet the 3D was amazing. Even the dark scenes weren’t dark. Then again, in these digital times, I find it odd that watching a movie in the proper light is something that is unique and worth noting, when I feel that should just be the norm.

I, too, found the light level impressive, especially compared to the standard today, although I don’t think it’s going to change anyone’s mind on 3-D. If I were set on seeing a movie in 3-D, I would definitely go to (and pay extra for) a laser theater. But laser wouldn’t make me want to see something in 3-D that I was planning on otherwise seeing in 2-D.

The ETX auditorium is closed this week for the installation of new seats. I was told they are putting in the red recliners in the ETX auditorium only and will evaluate how it goes and perhaps install them in all. I guess they will add reserved seating as well, but I forgot to ask. I find it interesting they are reducing seat count, but now one can pay for a premium experience and actually have one.

ETX auditorium is still closed, but I guess they are making this into one of their “PRIME” auditoriums from this post from Buttkicker seats on Instagram.

Sub-woofers in the seats?? Sounds like this could go either way…:) I thought they would add a PRIME auditorium to another smaller auditorium like they did elsewhere but at least they are trying to make the room different then IMAX with superior seating and sound.
