I did not want to suggest that these faux-IMAX installations can’t be an enjoyable place to see a film. My objection, and that of others, is to call them IMAX is misleading.

Thanks Cwalczak,I am sure the Regal here is using some type of Imax.I guess i have seen it at Disney World or Universal Studios while visiting those parks and probably did not realize it.

MR, the IMAX technology used at Universal and some other locales,is, in most cases, a variation of their OMNIMAX installations which requires a domed screen and a fisheye projection lens. Let me refer you to the IMAX entry on Wikipedia, as we are getting way off topic here.

To Mike R. I believe that this may be a legal IMAX. If what I read is right the screen is 70'x40'. Most retrofit theatres are only about 40-45; wide. We have 3 real Imax theatres and 1 Omnimax here in the Boston area. We also have several retrofit Imax and some Regal RPX.Also if you are only plopping down $12.00 that is cheap. By the way IMAX real or otherwise is not worth all that money. I would rather see them bring back Cinerama and Todd A O and other 70mm formats.

Uploaded three exterior photos. All I can say about the first is WOW, what a location.

Several photos of Regal’s Tikahtnu Stadium 16 can be seen on this page of the web site of TK Architects, the firm who designed the project.

Why is it called Tkahthu?

Trolleyguy on December 19, 2017 at 5:23 pm

From Wikipedia: The name means “The people,” and is related to the autonym for the Southern Athabaskan Navajo people “DinĂ©.” The Dena'ina name for Cook Inlet is Tikahtnu meaning “Big Water River” or Nuti meaning “Saltwater.”
