'Goblet of Fire' NOT worth viewing at some Omnimax theatres

We saw "Attack of the Clones" in a domed IMAX - the light sabers had a strange 90-degree bend to them. "Oooh, interesting new light sabers!" I thought. Never again!

You would think it would really be cool, wouldn't you? "Oh, boy, an IMAX!" I would have been first in line to see a Star Wars film (though not that one, sorry) at an Omnimax.

But it really stinks when the film is not in the right format for the theatre. As I explained above, Ann, the Omnimax in Indianapolis must have been a modified one. Although their screen was huge and curved, and more of a square than a rectangle, it wasn't a dome at all. The films played on their screen beautifully.

Awful, wasn't it? It seems as though it out to be illegal to charge money for that, seriously.

P.S., if you didn't read Sayhello's 11/26 post down there, she explains that the dome style IMAX's are the old models. The newer ones are the sort we saw the LotR films on in IN, which worked great.

OK, last time, Ann. I JUST got a reply notice for your comment. I thought, "Hmm, that's odd, I guess I never answered that." So I just posted this moment, (weeks later), and I see that I DID post a response. What's with that? Are they now sending out all the "lost" reply notices? I'd better check before I answer any others without looking first.
