Can’t find this one on the Google satellite either. Where is it in the mall?

The 16-screen AMC cinema promises mega comfort; aside from the 16 stadium-seating auditoriums, the theater features two VIP suites. Similar to the skyboxes in sports arenas, patrons can host private screenings and catered parties.

AMC Theatres is opening its newest IMAX theater in metro Atlanta April 29.

AMC Stonecrest 16 has dedicated one of its 16 screens to the IMAX format, bringing the number of IMAX screens in metro Atlanta to six.

The IMAX® theater at AMC Stonecrest 16 in Lithonia has been custom-designed for a multiplex.

To maximize the field of view in the modified auditorium, the screen was replaced with a larger, slightly curved and specially treated IMAX screen positioned closer to the audience.

IMAX’s digital projection system combines two digital projectors with IMAX’s proprietary image enhancer and custom lenses to create an image with greater clarity, brightness and contrast. A proprietary sound system also cuts down on distortion.
