they told me (at cineworld) that they use 2 projectors in their imax , altho this was one of the ushers , she could've been wrong





yeah , someone else told me that , that'd get on my nerves .
Yes, there are two PJ's at CW IMAX.

Oblivion was "specially formatted for IMAX" according to the Oblivion IMAX poster i got from Cineworld when i saw the film on opening day. I believe that means the frame was opened up so that IMAX viewers are getting more of the picture (it's all redundant extra space since the film was filmed with 2:35:1 in mind, but it still looks nicer on the IMAX screen), the same thing was done with the IMAX version of Skyfall.

Most IMAX conversions retain the films original aspect ratio though, hence why Iron Man 3 had black borders.

This will explain it better than i can:

Thanks for that.
