Midweek Mouth-off: 3D vs. IMAX

1 min read

They’ve both been called gimmicks but today we want to know which of moviedom’s 2 most prominent “immersive” formats you would pick if forced to choose: 3D or IMAX? (Alas, the 3D IMAX combo has never made it to South Africa). Or, alternatively, do you dismiss both as blatant excuses to milk cinemagoers of extra money.

For the record, this month marks the 2nd anniversary of IMAX shutting down in South Africa… and right now I’m very bitter that I won’t be able to watch either Prometheus or specifically-shot-for-IMAX The Dark Knight Rises on the massive screen. In this debate, I’m throwing my support firmly behind IMAX. Size matters.
