Where to See THE DARK KNIGHT RISES in True 70mm IMAX; New TV Spots Released

     July 16, 2012


I believe IMAX should be the true future of the theater-going experience when it comes to blockbusters (as opposed to 3D), but their branding is deceptive.  “True” IMAX is on a screen that’s 72 feet high.  It’s unmistakable, but “IMAX” is also attached to screens that are maybe half that size in which case you’re watching a 35mm or digital print.  It’s not bad, but it’s not the way a film shot in IMAX is intended to be seen.  Christopher Nolan utilized IMAX in a big way (no pun intended) when he made The Dark Knight Rises.  Over an hour of the 165-minute opus was shot in the format, and seeing it in 70mm IMAX is the way it was meant to be seen.  Granted, there are little things like “story” and “character” than can be viewed on any screen, but since we get so few movies that were actually shot in IMAX, it’s best to do it up right when you take it in.

So where can you find a true IMAX screen?  Hit the jump for a full list of locations.  We’ve also included two new TV spots, but I haven’t watched them because I’ve gone radio silent on the flick.  The Dark Knight Rises opens Friday.
