Trev, sounds like a real visual treat. Imax is fantastic, but in 3D it must have been super. [Smile]

Oh YES! I saw the Polar Express at the London Imax in 3D, super sharp, vivid colour, very bright and huge. The screen is the hight of 3 double decker busses, I really did find myself reaching out to try to grab the snow flakes. Forget widescreen, the screen is square and fills your complete field of vision, after this regular cinema is a bit like watching T.V.

I haven't been lucky enough to see a feature film in IMAX format yet, but I do wonder... is that which you see on an IMAX screen the same thing you would in a regular widescreen theatre (only far, far bigger) or do they fill the IMAX screen area with additional visuals beyond what happens "in the center"? In the case of Polar Express, did they render a very large view of the onscreen animation and put that on the IMAX film? Otherwise I would imagine that what happens onscreen is in fact so huge that you as a viewer can barely take it all in and it all just seems TOO close to you, sort of like watching TV with your face about 3 inches from the TV screen...

Yes Jan, I remember seeing Fantasia 2000 at the Imax and some of the images were too big to take in. The print of Polar Express was masked but utilsed the full screen , unlike standard 35mm cinemascope films which are a letterbox with white screen above and below. The two made for Imax films that I have seen take this in to account with the outsides filled with visual background to encoumpass your view with the main visuals at a size you can take in. I would have liked to have seen the Imax format DMR Prints of the Matrix triology to see how this compared with the original widescreen format
