cellboy, I am not sure that information about the Alexa 65 is correct. I might be wrong, but doesn’t this info from Arri mean that this lens is capable of a 1.1:43 aspect ratio with the Alexa 65?

ALEXA Plus 4:3 for anamorphic http://www.arri.de/news/news/alexa-plus-43-for-anamorphic/

Does this theater still use SDDS?

well that’s conterintuitive when every IMAX (15/70) screens are 4:3 – guess the future means we’ll get stuck with 2.0:1 / 1.9:1 image letterboxed on said screens, but still not using the full screen – ugh…

The new Alexa 65 camera has an aspect ratio of 2.1 to 1. I don’t think sensors /chips are going to get 4x3, rectanglar aspect ratio of 2 to 1 seems to be the primary display future.

you should point out moviebuff82 that each next Avenger’s movies will be shot in Digital IMAX for the entire movie – I gather that means that 4:3 screens full screen and 1.78:1 on all IMAX-Digital screens. In other words, no alternating aspect ratios.

Press release news:

‘IMAX Corporation today announced that Marvel’s Avengers: Infinity War – Parts 1 & 2, the two-part installment to the global blockbuster franchise, will be shot in their entirety using IMAX® and ARRI’s next generation revolutionary 2D digital camera – a joint customized digital version of ARRI’s new large format camera, the Alexa 65. The two-part Avengers saga marks the first time a Hollywood feature film will have been shot completely using IMAX® cameras and will feature IMAX’s exclusive aspect ratio, providing moviegoers a uniquely immersive experience.’

Tomorrowland’s IMAX aspect ratio is slightly open matted to 1.90:1

none of the Guardians of the Galaxy was shot with IMAX cameras – but I do have to say, the IMAX ‘experience’ with the expanded screen sequences was really stunning and worked to the giant screens advantage.

iMAX DLP. If it was 15/70. It would take up the whole screen. If you saw Guardians of the Galaxy or Transformers 4. Some scenes were shot same way. But with Imax cameras

The amc lincoln Square 13 imax projection is showing the tommorowland 15/70mm film print a little birdy just to me the Jurassic world will come in imax in June 12

Tomorrowland is IMAX DMR. The film was enhanced for IMAX

i’ve seen that in the trailers…it’s an odd aspect ratio and they converted that into 3d. The next avengers movie will be filmed in digital imax 2d for two parts. San andreas will share screen time in imax with Tomorrowland and that is a DMR blowup converted to 3D.

sheesh – jump down the guy’s throat – according to imdb – the film was all digitally captured – interesting, though, the aspect ratio used for ‘Tomorrowland’ is 70mm’s 2.20:1

in terms of 15/70 IMAX prints being struck for ‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’ – it better, not all the museums / science centers have all digital (let alone laser ) systems in place. We know that J.J. Abrams shot at least one major set piece in 15/70 – so I’d hope that Disney strike prints for this.

now in terms of ‘Jurassic World’ some scenes were filmed in 65mm and again, this film will be released in aspect ratio of 2.00:1 (yeah, go figure on that one).

The majority?

Was there any indication that any of this was filmed in 70mm IMAX ? Unless I missed the memo the final 70mm IMAX was “Interstellar” The new “Star Wars” and “Batman vs Superman” MIGHT have some 70mm IMAX prints struck.

Where did you even get any idea that “Tomorrowland” was even filmed in 70mm. Please, show your work on this links and your rationale for even thinking this. OK?

Is Tomorrowland a digital imax presentation or 70mm? I think the majority of imax theaters showing it are digital.

I might be seeing my IMAX at the AMC Empire until Lincoln Square converts. The projection is currently to small for Lincoln Square. The only way I’ll go to Lincoln Square IMAX is if it’s not playing at the Empire, AMC shares movies with Regals Walk and the RPX is worst than AMC Prime. But when IMAX laser comes, I’ll be at Lincoln Square

The manager told me the fall yesterday.

must be the economy. remember when AMC was rolling out every theater with the Sony 4k projectors from 2009 until 2012…that was a slow rollout. Ditto that for dolby atmos and the amc renovations.

summer is the worst time for an auditorium specifically an IMAX one to be closed for renovation – Fall (Sept.) would be the most ideal timeframe for the conversion. Thankfully the Smithsonian timed it just right (with IMAX’s help) to close, renovate, reopen the Airbus IMAX theater before the summmer movies.

The last time I asked at customer service I was told late summer or early fall. The laser projection seems to be on a slow roll out by IMAX.

Still no IMAX Laser. The IMAX DLP is designed for the AMC Empire 25 or 34th Street, not Lincoln Square. What is AMC waiting for, Star Wars to install it.

Currently people who sit the blue seats have the worst view of the screen

Hello- speaking of a little tibit of info. I went to the 12p.m. show of TAAOU in the main Loews auditorium and was shocked it was virtually empty.

When is the new laser imax be installed. I’m tired of seeing inax dlp not taking up the whole screen. It hasn’t been the same since IMAX 70MM. I don’t know why it wasn’t installed when The Hobbit played. Tcl Chineasecis new to IMAX. Lincoln Square had it since 1994

hdtv267 on April 20, 2015 at 3:50 am

this is one of the most anticipated movies of the year, I fail to see how the tidbit that advance tickets for first shows selling out is worth the post on here, other than just being self serving. Perhaps if they we not sold out, then maybe.

ok?

Tickets for the first showing of avengers in Imax 3d already sold out…
