It's digital projection - not 70mm true IMAX - but you will still notice details in the film you'd never spotted on home viewing. If you've never seen the movie, I envy you: experiencing it this way will change what you expect from a film!

They Don't Make 'Em Like This Anymore

To see this film in crystal clear IMAX was a real treat. I brought my whole family, some of whom had never seen it in a theater before. It's one of my favorite films and this experience just made it more so.

Raiders a disappointment in IMAX

I saw Raiders of the Lost Ark in IMAX on September 8. I went to an IMAX theater in a metroplex. I had not been to see an IMAX in a metroplex. I had seen a movie in a full IMAX theatre years before. While the IMAX screen was floor to ceiling, and it was not much wider than a standard theatre. The movie was presented in standard 2.35 to one. This made ihe viewing only marginally better. Not much value given the cost is much more than a regular movie. Additionally, I'm wondering if the projection system was working properly. The movie seemed a bit dark. And it seemed to lose focus many times. And at the beginning of the movie, the movie 'separated' and created ghost images. It eventually went away, but it was quite annoying. I had planned to see other movies this fall in IMAX. But not anymore.

Worth it

I originally watched this movie on a big screen. I can't remeber if I watched it two or three times. Since that time I have bought a VHS version, later a SVHS version, and a standard DVD version, so I have seen it many times on television sets from a twenty inch Sony to my flat screens. Seeing it again, on the big screen, and even better, I-Max still made it fun, almost like the original viewing. I had not forgot the plot, but I had forgot the impact that the big screen had on the movie, and it's presentation. Most re-releases don't motivate me to attend them, but I am very happy I did this one.

Great to see once more in theatre- even better in IMAX

I will watch "Raiders" anytime its on TV- even though I have the DVD sitting on the shelf. So I'm a fan. So I coulndn't pass up the opportunity to see the movie one an IMAX screen. Biggest suprise for me was the ability to see some of the details that went into the production that are lost on TV, even in HD. The details on th walls of the Well of Souls, for example, are remarkable and Had go unnoticed by me over 30 years. If you have a chance to see Raiders in a theatre- IMAX or not- and you never had the chance , do yourself a favor and bust open the piggy bank and go. you will not regret it.
