BTW, there’s no preshow before the imax show as the dual laser projectors can’t handle it. It also does 3d even though i haven’t seen a 3d movie there and it’s too expensive.

Saw Onward in Dolby yesterday and as many of you know now, they changed the policy trailer for Dolby by putting in the generic AMC 100 years trailer that is being shown before every movie and before the format trailer. It’s pretty nice but the generic trailer doesn’t shake up the seats like the “projector is still on” trailer does afterwards. As for the movie itself, it was quite fun. Lots of active surrounds and good color. One of the seats in my row was broken so someone told AMC to repair it after the show was over. Looks like next month will not be busy since James Bond has moved to November and the coronavirus is on everyone’s minds right now.

Keep it up Regal. BTW, Regal’s parent company is rumored to merge with Cineplex of Canada but that might not happen in the near future according to news reports.

For Dolby, the marquee doesn’t appear as multiple movies sometimes play there.

actually I saw the invisible Man in laser imax and it was a good movie. The sound mix was well done and the picture was decent. The tenet trailer in IMAX was pretty good. I plan on seeing Onward this weekend in Dolby. Advance tickets for the final Daniel Craig James Bond movie are on sale now and this is the first James Bond movie to be shot partly on Imax film.

The presentation of The Lodge was brighter than what I saw with Sonic showing as well as Brahms the Boy 2. Audio was pretty good too. I plan on seeing Invisible Man this weekend in Dolby as it was mastered in Dolby according to IMDB and it’s a scope movie.

I saw Birds of Prey in the laser imax on friday afternoon. They didn’t do the preshow here which was kinda odd. The presentation was good and the audio mix was great. The tenet prologue looked and sounded good.

Jojo Rabbit is playing in Dolby for the first time this weekend in addition to 1917, which is also being shown in the imax for a second weekend. Birds of Prey will play next week in dolby and imax and call of the wild will be playing in dolby soon.

Saw the gentlemen in theater 16 and enjoyed the film. Before the lights dimmed one of the cleaning crew came by to clean up a mess near the floor. The management needs to do a better job cleaning up the theater before the preshow starts since it sometimes happens during peak hours. Bathrooms also need to be cleaned up as well. AMC needs to renovate the other screens before cinepolis renovates parsippany before it reopens later this year.

Notice there’s no movie title above the imax unlike Dolby.

Imax is 1.90.1. Trailers can be shown full screen unlike Dolby in which flat trailers are windowboxed during scope movies. The advantage that Imax has over dolby is those long trailers such as Tenet prologue that are exclusive to the show. Last night I went to see The Turning in theater #5 and it was a bad movie. The projector was a bit blurry yet the sound was ok.

I hope soon they replace the seats in the old screens with new ones.

Went to see Bad Boys for Life in Dolby and noticed they played the opening before the main enjoy the show trailer and then the previews before the demo trailer appeared. Weird. At least they showed the trailers in correct aspect ratio alongside the full screen preshow. One trailer the love birds was shown in the middle of the scope screen. Audio and picture was great and the movie was a hoot!!!

The imax logo is now next to the screen and there’s a dark entrance. The seating is reduced and the lighting is blue kinda like dolby. Seats don’t recline but they’re plush and the audio and picture is ok.

seating count on this site should be reduced since the imax laser renovation. Saw Black Xmas in theater #15 just in time for the movie to start. BTW, select screenings of this movie and jumanji have A Quiet Place Part II teaser being shown exclusively before the film and i saw a bootlegged copy on youtube. Imax laser 3d debuts next weekend with the final skywalker movie even though its converted 3d so i’ll stick to dolby and regular when i see it in a few weeks when the crowd dies down.
