IMAX Theatre at Palisades Center

Viewing: Photo | Street View

Located right next to the AMC 21-screen complex, this theatre opened in late-1998 a few months after the movie theatre opened. One of the first IMAX theatres located inside a major shopping center, this theatre has a decent screen but fewer seats than its cross-river rival, the Imax in Lincoln Square. Occasionally shows blockbuster as well as nature documentaries. It was taken over by AMC in February 2014.

One of the first movies to play here was “Everest”, which was one of the most popular IMAX movies of all time.

One site claims the screen is 74' wide.

They support film 3D projection.

One odd thing is that Avatar 3D did not take up the full width (I know it can’t take up the full height since the aspect ratio is 1.78:1 and not 1.4:1 as is IMAX). Maybe this location doesn’t have a bright enough bulb to drive 3D at over 64-66' or so width? Maybe no location does? Or did they just side crop it down a little for no reason? Anyway, with film 3D you don’t have to worry about seeing gridlines if you sit fairly close. Pretty awesome experience all the same, but I was wondering why they didn’t project the full 74' width.

For film 3d, especially older movies, you might see some film static. That was the case with L5, which i’ve seen a few times at the lincoln square theater. Any word on when digital imax will be installed at this theater?

Operated (with a separate box office and concessions from the 21-screen Lowes) by AMC since RoboCop (February 12, 2014). Not sure if they still have 15/70MM in operation.

No more films at the IMAX 70MM or other. ALL DIGITAL

Does anyone know the official status of this? I heard it was closed to upgrade its projectors to digital and upgrade speakers? Now I see the website is down. Is AMC running it?

See my post on the palisades center theater page….this should be merged with the other AMC theater page.

Was at the mall yesterday, the standalone IMAX theater is officially closed. AMC is converting theater #10 into an IMAX at their Loews Theater next door which is undergoing a recliner-update. Frankly this sucks – this was a true IMAX theater with a giant 6-story screen, they even brought back 15/70MM for Interstellar (I had been out of town when it opened and waited to see it here). Not sure what uses the mall will put it to, but I imagine you can covert the theater into a decent sized multi-floor retailer, which sucks. The native IMAX was certainly a draw for me when the experience warranted it (for the nature docs as well the Batman pictures, MI: Ghost Protocol and Interstellar) – Theatre #10 at least will be bigger than the pathetic scam of an IMAX at Clifton Commons.
