From what I saw at Regal 20 I visited,this IMAX I saw did not impress me.looks like the size movie screens use to be and nothing more.

I agree Mike,but some folks have truly never seen a Big Screen,so maybe the larger screens will make a comeback.Of course with most people watching movies on their cell phones, computers,i-pods and whatever, else, any screen would seem large.

so now the DC metro area will have ETX at Tysons, XD at the Cinemark, three IMAX (15perf/70mm) theatres, five IMAX-Digtal screens, DLP at the Uptown – the circle’s complete: RPX at Regal Manassas

The Continental in Denver has always had a big curved screen. In the last couple of years, they started charging a “big screen” fee for movies in that house. It’s now the RPX theater. They’ve now found a way to charge even more for what use to be included with the price of admission.
