Moviegoing in Los Angeles

I can remember a time when where we went to the movies was just as important as the movies we went to see .... From the moment moviegoers arrived to buy their tickets, there was a sense of something special, a feeling that to step inside was to enter another time and place. - Gene Kelly
I am considerably disappointed in AMC and IMAX’s new practice of installing “LieMAX” screens. Don’t be fooled – the IMAX screen at the AMC 15 in Century City is NOT real IMAX. This screen is SLIGHTLY larger than the standard screens at any local multiplex – no where near the 100′ tall IMAX real screens and the projection is NOT 15-70mm, but rather dual digital projectors. Although this is a larger screen and the image is very sharp and clear – this is NOT IMAX and not worth the additional $5. Take the time to go to the Science Museum or the Universal Studios Citywalk for the legit IMAX experience.
