IMAX has been creating miniIMAX screens all over the country and those bastards are capitalizing by fooling people into believing that these are actually legitimate 70mm IMAX screens. Although they are branded and owned by IMAX, they are not the same size. IMAX is a 76′ x 97′ screen while minIMAX (not official name) is 28′ x 58′ feet, a 4.5x difference in sizes (Click on the picture above).
How do they fool you and steal your money? By pushing the screen closer to your face. The result is the optical illusion of a huge screen that takes over your entire visual range.
SO… before you go to the IMAX to go see Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen or any other IMAX movie check out this list to make sure your theater is the correct size. (Thanks TF Live).
