And saw a film there, or a 3D film? I have to say its a great experiance. I have seen a few films, and a 3D Africa safari. Its really funny watching all the kids try and touch the things coming out the screen.

I have also seen the Rolling Stones, live concert at an IMAX Cinema, and that was a bloody amazing experiance. I felt like i was up there with them, it was amazing.

I was thinking though, wouldnt it be cool if someone made a 3D film concert for an IMAX cinema. For example, look at this video

Can you imagine the words coming out at you :D That would be very cool!

You must! I have been to the one in Glasgow and London, they are all the same. Remember to wear the cool specs though :pi:

At the start of the safari, this huge globe comes out right at the start, and spinsright in front of you, i was amazed lol And then it rotated to show you Africa, and then zoomed right in as if from space, i felt a bit sick lol

The rolling stones was absolutly AMAZING! I have seen them live, and i felt this was even better! I felt like i was right up there, and flying over the crowd, and sometimes standing right next to them. After the first song i almost stood up and clapped, and i had a lump in my throat like i was gonna cry LOL

However, you can see standard movies there, but you have to go to a 3D film specifically, and wear the specs lol

I've been to the Dinosaur one in London some years ago. If they still have the Simpsons one I'd like to see that one. :)

Heaven for me would be seeing the Star Wars series in glorious IMAX :D

We have the biggest and newest in all Europe
close by in Nürnberg. Yes, it Rocks. I almost never
go to the movies, but do go to IMAX sometimes.

Can't wait until my daughter is old enough to chill and focus
for the length of a IMAX film and be able to really enjoy it.

Amazing. I saw my first one at the World's Fair in Vancouver
back in .... 82' was it? Footage of the Alaska wilds.

I think Superman released on 3DIMAX Cinemas for watching it, but I don't have time/will to go there. It's far from my house :p
So... The answer is no, I've never been to a IMAX Cinema, and I'm not planning to go either, unless they build one near. *Oh... My young spirit is dying. Who cares? :D*

Sure have! =) There was one Panasonic Imax here in Oslo,on Aker Brygge,but sadly and chockingly,it was removed. :( Probably because they started using ordinary movies as well,which erased it´s difference from standard cinemas. Sure miss it and it´s great 3D films...

Do you mean when you are there? I know the words dont come right out at you at the actual concert lol However, sometimes an IMAX cinema, will show concerts.
