Usually only IMAX or only 3D doesn't enhance the experience enough for me to justify the price or gas money.


To be fair, the term "IMAX" means relatively little these days. Digital IMAX is often just two 2K projectors used together to get a normal-theater-quality image onto a slightly larger screen without it winding up too dim.

Actual IMAX is awesome.

This pains me to no end. If you're going to pay the premium, at least get the real thing. I have no idea why IMAX is diluting their brand, because even on their webpage they list fake imax theatres under the find a location section.

If the screen is not 100 feet tall and it's not projecting real 65mm imax film (or the digital equivalent 8K), you aren't seeing it for real.
