If you read IMAX vs. UltraAVX, it seems like a close call.
From one online snippet:Is UltraAVX screen size and image quality better than IMAX?
In terms of image quality, the UltraAVX image is vivid, crisp and detailed, down to the last fine line and crow's foot. IMAX does have a leg up on image, but just by a bit. Screen size? UltraAVX is as wide as an IMAX screen, just not quite as tall, though much bigger than what you'd find in a regular theatre. For perspective, consider that there were a couple of scenes where the apes were leaping towards the screen and it felt as though they were leaping into the audience.What about sound?
It's a close tie. Both have excellent sound systems, better than in a regular theatre, with IMAX sounding marginally clearer than UltraAVX. But UltraAVX seemed louder with respect to bass, with rumbling you can feel through your seat, depending on the scene. Definitely the kind of sound system you'd want for an action movie.So, is UltraAVX comfier than an IMAX Theatre? Is It Worth the Ticket Price?
From my point of view, it's a big YES.
Better seats and space configuration tip the scale,I'll find out soon.Edited by 5aces - 11/9/12 at 8:35pm
