    ya i have... went to watch Matrix Reloaded there. whether it's worth $13 i think depends on the movie. the screen is really big, but the problem is that with the big-screen ratio, the sides tend to be cut off (like your TV)...

    Imho, its worth it...watched Matrix Revolution there, but the screen is huge, makes me feel ...

    As Larry pointed out, the screen ratio is almost 4:3, so the sides got cut off...

    Here's the comparison:



    But its cool, waiting for Apollo 13 now...

    Wooohooo...the Imax sound system is much, MUCH better than any of those normal GV or what-have-you cinemas. The screen is also much brighter than the normal cinema's. The only weakness was that it is in the 4:3 aspect ratio which made the movie, well, funny. I was thinking why are the characters standing so close to the edge of the screen that it got cut off...

    The screen was so big that you can see the pockmarks clearly on Laurence Fishburne's face.

    I watched the Revolutions at the GV IMAX, pretty cool. I was like 5 rows away from the screen, a bit too close.

    I watched Reloaded at an Imax theatre in the States, it's pretty cool as well. But I don't remember being that close. It's also more "wide screen".

    The detail is amazing.....

    Heard/read somewhere Return of the King will be on IMAX, not sure if it will be launched here.

    Regards
