Hi guys!!! Got invited by omy.sg to watch The Amazing Spiderman at Shaw Theatres JCube, IMAX. Hehehe, it was my first time watching a movie in an IMAX Theatre!
Shaw Theatres JCube is cinema operator's latest multiplex and it opened on 5 April with 7 screens, including an IMAX theatre (Singapore's second). Bringing Hollywood blockbusters and quality entertainment right to the doorsteps of residents in the west of Singapore.
About Shaw Theatres
Shaw Theatres, part of the Shaw Organisation, was founded by the Shaw Brothers and has been operating cinemas in Singapore since 1927. With Shaw Theatres JCube, it now owns six multiplexes across the island, and they feature the latest in cinema technologies like IMAX, Dolby 7.1 Surround and RealD 3D systems. Shaw Theatres also manages a seventh multiplex, Century Cineplex, which is privately owned.
Hmmmmmm, if you guys are wondering what is IMAX?
The IMAX's Digital Theatre System offers the most immersive movie-going experience possible. For a start, IMAX’s projection technology delivers crystal-clear images. The dual projection system projects left-eye and right-eye images simultaneously thus eliminating depth distortion during fast- moving scenes.
IMAX’s audio system creates laser-aligned digital sound for accurate and realistic sound images with the largest dynamic range. This enables the sound to be crisp enough to hear a pin drop and precise enough to know exactly where it dropped!
Then there is IMAX’s customised theatre geometry, which maximises your field of view. The high- gain screen results in exceptionally bright images and unparalleled 3D effect. The screen is also slightly curved and sits closer to the audience, creating a larger effective screen, which is equivalent to a 20% to 230% increased in screen area.
The IMAX Experience is recognised around the world as of the highest-quality and most immersive cinematic experience ever created. Movie fanatics were willing to wait two to three weeks for seats to the IMAX versions of major blockbusters like Transformers: Dark of the Moon, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 2, and Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol at Shaw Theatres LIDO IMAX! There is clearly a demand for IMAX Digital Theatres.
It was a pretty cool experience watching The Amazing Spiderman in IMAX! Basically to summarize what I said on top because some of you guys might get confused between IMAX experience and a regular normal theater.
IMAX is a huge theater with a gigantic curved screen. It's usually the most advanced top quality sound and video to show movies. It's definitely worth seeing on IMAX its fun and a nice experience.
