Is IMAX Worth The Extra Money?

Is it worth seeing in IMAX?

Real, enormous-screen IMAX is totally worth it.

The “digital IMAX” is not.

Often, “digital IMAX” screens will just be retrofitted standard theater screens, which is simply impossible with real IMAX – you need a screen (and sound system) that’s actually designed for IMAX.

Does IMAX really make a difference?

IMAX theatres have a dome circular and huge plain screens that almost cover the entire theatre and makes you feel like a part of the film. The screen size difference is so much that IMAX screens are six times larger than regular theatre screens.

What is so great about IMAX?

An Omnimax is an IMAX theatre that has a huge domed screen. They use a fish eye lens to shoot and then project the image on the entire dome. The only draw left to IMAX is the sound and how much of your field of vision the screen fills. The sound for IMAX is a maximum 6.1 channel surround sound.

Is IMAX better than digital?

IMAX uses dual digital projectors, each with 2K resolution. They claim that this is equivalent to 4K resolution but it really is not. It is still 2K but twice as bright. The real advantage of a true Imax theatre is the size of the screen and design of the auditorium that allows most viewers to sit close to the screen.

Is Dolby or IMAX better?

Is IMAX more expensive?

For the full experience, theaters recommend seeing movies in 4D. But tickets are much more expensive. Most IMAX D-BOX simulator seats are not worth the extra cost. D-Box seats cost $22 each, so nearly three times the cost of regular movie tickets.

Is IMAX 3d better?

Imax Digital 3D movies will cost more when compared to RealD 3D for several reasons.

The visual quality of IMAX 3D is also so much higher, bringing in an engaging experience while at the movie.

Is 4dx better than IMAX?

4DX has more than 3D effects like wind, rain, scent etc. The screen of 4DX is not so big, although bigger than the normal theatres and RealD is offered as a 3D viewing technology. IMAX has much more larger screen and way better visual quality and sound of course.
