The day they alter the Lincoln Center IMAX in NYC is the day I refuse to pay to see IMAX.

The bastards already yanked it from my area theaters in favor of Liemax. Saw Dark Knight before the switch, and the 70mm scenes were glorious. Easily one of my favorite experiences involving a contemporary film in the theater. By the time Inception rolled around, the switch had been made, and when I watched scenes I knew for a fact were 70mm, they appeared on screen as uniformly blah as the 35mm sequences, all filtered through DI and uprezzed for the giant screen.

It pains me to think I will never experience Dark Knight Rises, which will feature EVEN MORE Imax scenes that Dark Knight, in true, 15/70.

I gotta say it: **(obscenity removed)** you Imax for selling your legacy and your soul.

It's maddening. Will they rip them out of ALL the IMAX theaters?
