IMAX 3D vs Real 3D
Many movies in theaters now have the option to see a “Real 3D version” or an “Imax 3D version” – what’s the difference?
Well at the AMC theater I go to, you have to return the Imax 3D glasses but you can keep the Real 3D glasses. In terms of visual and sound quality, the Imax version is a tiny bit better. But either way, you can’t really go wrong.
Since the IMAX screen is really big, I’d say it’s worth an extra few dollars to have a little bit more fun. Just make sure you get some glasses, because the movie will be blurry if you are not wearing any! (they are usually handed out either when you pay for the ticket, lining up to enter into where the concession stand is, or right by the theater lobby)
(Plus the previews are much cooler, usually!)
