About IMAX

What is IMAX actually?

IMAX has the capacity to record and display images of far greater size and resolution than most conventional film systems. A standard IMAX screen is 22 × 16.1 m (72 × 52.8 ft) and they are generally the same everywhere. IMAX theatres are described as either “Classic Design,” (Purpose-built structures designed to house an IMAX theatre) or “Multiplex Design.” (Existing multiplex auditoriums that have been retrofitted with IMAX technology). [2] The world’s largest cinema screen (and IMAX screen) is in theLG IMAX theatre in Sydney, New South Wales. It is approximately 8 stories high, with dimensions of 35.73 × 29.42 m (117.2 × 96.5 ft) and covers an area of more than 1,015 m2 (10,930 sq ft).

That day when we went to the IMAX theater in Berjaya Times Square was an experience I ‘ll never forget. It’s a dream come true to be able to see what’s actually is inside of an IMAX theater. Lately been going to various 3D movies. But always wanted the screen to be a bit… bigger…

Lists of 3D movies watched

  • Up
  • Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs
  • Alice in Wonderland (Loved the red queen, and the Cheshire cat!)
  • A Christmas Carol (Wow to this movie)
  • Final Destination 4 (I can’t say it’s scary at all, it’s actually kinda slimy… and gooey… meaty… something…)
  • Avatar (3D’ed 4 times plus once normal cinema screen, and I’d say I loved the 3D more)
  • How to Train your Dragon (3D’ed trice)
  • G-force! (this one is totally cool)

Haha… I think this is the list of the 3D movies I already went to. And for  some of these 3D movies, they also have the IMAX 3D version. Alice in Wonderland is one of them, but I haven’t got the time to find out where and when it’s available in IMAX, 3D or not. Honestly I’d say, a bit dissaponted to not able to experience the IMAX that day, but happy to be able to watch Prince of Persia!

…and a few days before I thought I won’t be able to watch Prince of Persia in big screen because of time constraints… I am one happy fellow…

Image is not related to the movie watched

This is actually the prince from the game of the same title Prince of Persia, and…. I can’t resists inserting his picture here. Experienced the game, loved the environment, and noticing a lot of similarities of the movie and this game. Well… they do share the same origin…

Okay… I’m going a bit off topic here…

Next, Prince of Persia ~ the movie! and game!

*I can’t resist the game!
