I love both theaters, and this is a tough call for Star Wars in particular, because of the history of Star Wars movies showing at the Chinese. That said, the big differences are these:

1) The Chinese is a new-IMAX-style 1.90:1 screen. It is quite large and very satisfying, but the AMC Universal is an old-fashioned IMAX with a truly gargantuan IMAX screen (several stories tall) with the over-square 1.43:1 aspect ratio. Now Star Wars will be Scope, so letterboxed in both venues, but the image will be much larger at Universal.

2) Both venues have IMAX 12 channel sound. Acoustics have *always* been challenging at the Chinese, and it will sound better at Universal. But, IMAX has done a good job at the Chinese and I think it sounds pretty good.

3) I've gotta say there is something pretty special about seeing Star Wars openings at the Chinese though, as that's been a prominent opening location going all the way back to the original in '77.

I understand that the answer will be subjective, but does acting seem phony to you when you see a play (live theatre)?.
This is my first post in this thread but I need to make a comment. To me a live play always seems phony, no matter how good the actors are

if you can still find any

intimate theater . .
10 years ago or so

in Santa Ana, an intimate group, The Rude Gorilla, director Dave Barton ( may still be in O.C.)
maybe seating 30-35

actors 5-10 feet away from you, minimalist settings, no microphones needed
lots of Ravenscroft (iirc) plays and others,


an unsustainable endeavor but they had a heck of a good run maybe 4-7 years,
the actors?
students, some with pro experience,

and right" in your face"
priceless theater

Actually I got tickets for both since the IMAX is also 3D - both at the Burbank 16.

But my "premiere" presentation will be Dolby Cinema for the picture & Atmos sound.

Thanx. No right or wrong answer. Was just trying to find out whether a cadence higher than 24Hz hurts the sense of reality.

L.A and O.C folks, I no longer need this DTS sign. If someone here wants it for free, just give me a call at 657 549 2410, and we'll arrange a time for pick up.

I've enjoyed having the sign in my theater room for years, but lately, I'm changing the room around and I'm wanting it to look less "commercial".

It may be thought that the occasional lower range of activity for the group has settled in

"winter", life in general and all that,
compromise being a core value

but

not settling without serious regard is also at the core of what the collective "power base" of LAHTG is

WE all have many things to be thankful for

everyday

Happy Thanksgiving to all of the group
