So IMAX is not really offering much more in terms of picture size or quality over a good conventional cinema screen. I think its a real shame and could kill the format - as people will confuse IMAX digital with proper IMAX. Even if the screen is a bit bigger its not going to have that almost real image quality that you get with large format film. I'm sure the digital projection looks ok, but its going to be significantly less good than IMAX film projection - I guess if most of what they show is DMR blowups - your not missing anything. But IMAX originated movies are really going to be degraded in these screens.
