AMC is getting an Imax at their Yonge and Dundas location. Imax stickers all over the window of the AMC box office. This would be interesting for the Scotiabank Theatre since it looked so run down compare to AMC.
That's terrific news (though 2 IMAX screens there would be even better!). Do you have any further details? When and where is it going and how are they doing it? I hope they will be using film, not that crappy new IMAX digital process (which would be a first in Canada if they do).
The Scotiabank's IMAX theatre is good, it's just all those dark walls in all of their cinemas that I find so depressing and lacking any charactor whatsoever.
This is a bastardized version of IMAX which shouldn't even be called IMAX as it's completely misleading. I've read a lot about these "mini IMAX" installations in the US (sometimes referred to as LIMAX), the screens are small and the 2K digital projection is far inferior to film even on a small "shaped" IMAX screen. Google "IMAX digital" to learn more and read people's comments. Between crap like this and 2D movies being converted into 3D, no customer service at cinemas, poor quality projection, bad sound etc. the film industry is really scraping the bottom of the barrel. I don't believe people will keep paying big bucks to be ripped off over and over again forever.
Scotiabank Theatre is getting an Ultra Avx, not to be outdone by AMC. One of auditoriums needs to close down for the renovation to make the screens wider, new "leather" seats, speakers and more stiffer and durable carpeting. Christie Solaria 2230 DLP Cinema projector will be install inside the Ultra Avx auditorium. No date is set for the opening for the Ultra Avx at the Scotiabank.
