Update: I just saw “Avatar” in Real 3D at a “Fake Imax” theater so after reading this blog post, please read my Avatar Review by clicking here.
The great Aziz Ansari exposed the “Fake IMAX Scam” for which apparently the executives at IMAX instead of just admitting they made a mistake and listing IMax Theaters by Screen Size gave a “I used a golf club to free Tiger Woods Casey Stengel (RIP) double talk BS” excuse. You can read about it here. Basically if you don’t know, Aziz Ansari revealed that while Giant Imax screens are about 76 X 97 feet, many movie theaters advertising a movie in Imax are actually only about 28 x 58 feet, or what is now being referred to as “Fake Imax” screens . That to me is the equivalent of being set up on a date with Angelina Jolie and finding out your date is Octomom instead! I thought by now there would be an easily found list of Imax Theaters with Screen Size online and this is the only one I could find: Listing of Real Imax versus “Fake Imax” Theaters which you can find by clicking here.
I hope to be seeing Avatar in Real Imax this month. Wishing you all a Merry Christmas, Happy Chanukah and Happy New Year and if anyone has found a better list of real versus “Fake Imax” please let me know.
