The Cinemark theater (formerly "The Bridge" and, then, "The Rave") recently replaced one of the few true IMAX theaters in the Los Angeles/Orange County area with an XD "Extreme Digital Cinema" theater.

Earlier today (4/30/14), Cinemark representatives gave me full access to every aspect of their new XD theater. This includes access to the projection room and all the projector, sound, screen, and seating specifications.

My first impression of the new theater was based on seeing "Captain America: The Winter Soldier" on April 4th from my seat in the middle of the third row. In the next few days to a week, I will be posting comprehensive reviews of every aspect of what I think is, by far, the best "digital projection" movie-going experience in the Los Angeles area. I have some pictures I will also be posting that you may find interesting. Many are pretty dark, but I'm working on them so you can at least see some of the aspects I'm trying to highlight.

I'm sad to see the IMAX go, but I also appreciate the opportunity to see virtually every new release on a "true" IMAX sized screen with with resolution levels that are quite impressive. More on that, and everything else, soon. IMG_0022.JPG 6373k .JPG file

Any reviews coming? Also, I'm wondering how the XD at the H.H. Center compares to the also newly renovated TCL Chinese Theater Imax?
