oakley outlet A Conversation for IMAX Theatr

A Conversation for IMAX Theatres

Well. I just went to the new Famous Players IMAX theatre in Calgary, Alberta, Canada, and while talking to the staff discovered an interesting fact. Despite sold out shows all day every day, the staff pick up VERY little garbage one employee claimed he p oakley outlet icked up a grand total of 2 soft drink cups and one popcorn bag all week. Surprisingly, nearly ALL the viewers, when asked to remove their own rubbish, did so. We really are very polite. Thank You.

Our local IMAX in Speyer has two houses a “Classic” and a “Dome”. I have only been to the Classic once (the first time back in the days when it was the only one there) At each showing there was a maximum of 20 people in the cinema, so I doubt they could produce that much rubbish. Are the films the same all over the world? Ours is showing one on Egypt, one on the Titanic, one on Safari in Africa, one in Outer Space etc etc. In fact the Entry doesn’t mention the content of the films at all. Typical! All they can talk about is the technical side of it. Never mind what it’s actually FOR. There should be at least a sentence stating that it is devoted to showing documentary films about such things as Outer Space or under water where you have completely different dimensions to think in as opposed to the normal feature film which tells a story usually within a limited space, such as a room or on a street, in keeping with the centuries old theatrical tradition. Of course there are films made at sea or Westerns which take place with miles of desert stretching in all directions, and this is one of the advantages of cinema (the conventional kind) over the theatre. But the desert/sea/city skyline is still basically only a backdrop to the actors and not the subject of the film itself.

I just saw T Rex (a sterilized and popularized film which states, in essence, “Look! Dinosaurs are friendly and happy so girls can like them too!”), and a special Cirque du Solier made specifically for IMAX 3D oakley outlet . Very cool. IMAX is moving towards fiction and regular films and away from the documentary style films because of the simple fact that documentaries don’t draw in the crowds. Its a shame, really. But I have to admit that I would rather see something like “The Mummy Returns” designed for IMAX 3D than yet another canyon, or a forest, or more boring old outer space.

We’ve just seen one in France about some Inuit Ca oakley outlet nadians at one of these cinemas, but it was called Cinema 180. Is this the same thing? I oakley outlet t had all the seats tilted backwards. And if it is, is it the same as the cinemas where you stand up at a bar at the front and watch films about rollercoasters? I always had to hold onto the bar or I’d fall over. I was quite upset to have to sit down in this one. And I find sitting right at the front is best, but every one I have ever been to all the other people go straight to the back.

No, Cinema 180 isn’t the same thing. In fact, this sounds like fusion of two other technologies and I’m not sure which is which: Dimension 150 was a 70mm process created in the late 60s or early 70s and was used to shoot “Patton”. Cinema 360 was pioneered at an Expo somewhere, I believe it was used by Disney at one time. This is the idea: a ring of projectors and screens surround the audience in a broken circle (leaving room for the projectors) to create (as nearly as possible) the experience of actually ‘being there’ wherever the camera is. My reference book “Wide Screen Movies” lists a Cinema 160, which was devised by Frank Caldwell and called, in sequence, Super VistaVision, (in 1955) Cyclotrona, and finally Cinema 160 in 1958. There were no features made in this format.
