The effect is profound. Traditional film suddenly feels very small and almost claustrophobic. Those black bars at the top and bottom of the screen become horizontal railings that while perhaps not trapping us in, are clearly guiding us along. When the screen opens up to IMAX format though, you’re set free. I kept moving my head up and down trying to make sure I wasn’t missing anything. MG Siegler, over at Medium
I couldn’t agree more. The IMAX experience is literally jaw dropping. I found myself looking around on the screen, trying to soak in every last pixel. Don’t miss this one.
