All generic Odeon Luxe publicity shows large Scope screens, so therefore it is somewhat surprising (and dissapointing) to read that the screens here are just 1.85 Flat, especially the Isense screen. All this rather goes against their own publicity.

Far from being the ultimate movie exprience, watching letterbpxed Scope films becomes more like watching a large TV set. In fact it is rather worse as the way Scope films are held digitally, the sides are slightly trimmed if shown on a 1.85 screen. The aspect ratio is reduced from 2.39 to 2.32.

Not good.

Saw Apocalypse Now Final Cut here on Screen 1 Isense screen Nice reclining seats & sound good (Atmos). Disapointed Screen was not scope (looked to be 1.85 as balck bars top & bottom)for the premium add on cost Would guess all screens (6 in total) wll be like this here as screen 1 was largest screen with 91 seats
