Lol thanks for the cred, not on Superhero Hype boards but I read their articles quite a bit!
Yeah, that does look like the same projector from your post, 4k laser projection.
Hmmm, maybe they weren't sure about laser at the time and just didn't want word leaking out yet? Not sure either - I did look at their Facebook and they didn't have any mention of the new laser projection until a week into April, (from what I could see).
Sorry can't help ya out on breakfast! I've only been out there twice - once for free 17min GOTG Imax preview, (1st time there to see if it was worth price & trip) and 2nd was to watch Interstellar so I don't know the area at all. Speaking of free preview, WB was holding a free 15 min event, (trailer/clip?) for Batman vs Superman this Monday at the Chinese Theater. I was hoping to get in to check out the laser projection, (and trailer of course) but passes all gone in like, a few hours!
The Cinemark XD 18 is my preferred theater for now - prices are good there especially with the Tuesday deal, XD is a nice brand new theater and there are plenty of places to eat at the Center too.
Here's another recent article on IMAX laser projection including future laser projection locations...
