    I never bought into the whole IMAX or 3D thing.

    Today's screens are more than big enough and 3D? well 3D just removes me from the film.

    That being said I will be watching DOTM in Imax 3D lol

    Even tho theres an IMAX theater about 40 miles from where I live,I wouldn't pay to drive over there,pay another $15 to see it and fight all the morons just to see DOTM.Its bad enough having to pay $6 total here with those stupid clark kent glasses,which I never use anyway.But even tho it sounds like I'm not gonna see it I will actually be at the midnight showing the night its released.Woohoo come on DOTM.

    I am hoping it will be watchable in regular 2D.
    I can't take 3D movies at all.

    Qft. I personally hate the trend towards 3D. As Transbot said, it removes me from the film. I would much prefer good old regular 2D IMAX for DOTM.

    Wait a minute, was this film shot with the IMAX cameras and the Pace 3D cameras?
    I know they used the Pace Rig but didn't Nelson say
    "There will be a 3D reel but it's not in IMAX format (70mm). IIRC, they did not use IMAX cameras this time around."?
    So what's the point of raving about it being shown in IMAX when the there is no IMAX (size) scenes?! It's just going to be a 3D film shown in the IMAX.
    Well anyway, I'm still planning on watching at the IMAX! :D

    Oh I love IMAx and especially 3D. If you sit in just the right spot you loose your peripherals and get immersed! Man Steven Spielberg is crushing it, DOTM, Super 8 and Secrets of Unicron...lol

    YES! man this makes me happy. i would go see an imax movie any day over 3d. imax is WORTH the 7 extra bucks. and some movies, like transformers, and inception, you NEED to see in imax. so YAY for DOTM in imax!

    Id have top either Drive to Duluth which is about 195 miles or so or down to the twin cities which is about 250 miles to get to the nearest one. so I'll be content with a regular theater.

    IMAX 3D is the best. I love watching movies in it. A little bit sad that TF3 didn't get shot in IMAX due to the 3D cameras, but it isn't a big deal. I'll wait until the 2nd or 3rd day to go to hear how the IMAX conversion went. Sometimes you go and see a film all stretched out poorly and just ugly looking. If a film is properly converted, and if the theater is a real IMAX and not one of those stupid little fake IMAXs, the films look great on that screen.

    Saw the first two movies in IMAX and regular theaters and I much prefer regular theaters. The only reason I saw them in IMAX at all was because it was free and also because Michael Bay came to introduce ROTF (I saw it at the Udvar-Hazy Museum IMAX theater). The IMAX screen is simply too big, even sitting in the back row, making it hard to follow fast motion sequences. The sound doesn't particularly impress me either.

    Because for $7,000,000 you too can blow up your film from regular 35mm film into 70mm IMAX film.
