lol, it's mainly for the communal experience, as well as I have REALLY good Digital Imax theaters right by me. combine that with the movie cash codes from blu-rays I get and the fact that I'm an impatient man
The impatient part is my downfall. The AMC Prime experience was quite impressive and might make it even more difficult waiting for Blu-ray releases.

Imax came out after I went into sequestration. I'm considering breaking my vows and go to an Imax theater, just to see what Imax is all about.

The rub, we have a 60" screen and I promised the wife we wouldn't upgrade to an 80" screen until this one fails. Sixty inch is the perfect size for baseball viewing but an eighty inch is more appropriate for movie viewing and places like Best Buy and Costco have made 80" flat screens "affordable."

IMAX is good but do some research first. If you have an AMC Prime near it would be well worth the trip. If you're going to break it then do it right!

Re: What movie did you watch last night?

Thanks for the suggestions. According to the AMC locator, nothing within fifty miles of us. We'd have to go about a hundred and fifty miles to Antioch from where we are in the Northern California mountains to find an AMC Prime.

(i'm not installing shakers)

...

And it's a hundred miles to the nearest regular Imax location. Looks like my vows of chastity are going stay intact.

Make it a road trip! We love spontaneous trips like that. AMC Prime, maybe a restaurant you've never been to before.

Might be a good idea but we're senior citizens and we don't get along well with three hundred mile, round trip, road trips and a movie. We'd end up having to get a night's lodging, dinner, breakfast (unless breakfast is included in the lodging fee) and a drive back home.

But we do like road trips and it is an idea worth pursuing.
