    Barry,

    I agree with your synopsis and review (as well as your spoilers). I found the movie very entertaining and the presentation was outstanding. Unlike a lot of Disney movies lately, the bass response is fantastic here and should be a home theater demo for years to come, especially the third act.

    $22.50 here. I bought one for IMAX 3D and left after 20m. My seat was too close and off to the side, so I snuck into the Dolby Cinema next door, where the next show was just starting. MUCH better.

    Hey, thanks for mentioning that. I'd never heard of JB-X. Looks like it's another "X" type of theatre. (i.e. IMAX, RPX, XD.) They all seem to be leveraging the X from IMAX to imply the experience is on par.

    But there's two of these JB-X theatres by me, so gonna check them out. Dolby Atmos + 4K + recliners + 6ft screen = I'm there.

    Nothing beats Dolby Cinema though. It's got all the above + laser projection with HDR. Looks like JB-X has a Barco 4K DLP projector, which is still great.

    The Dolby Cinema in Burbank is the best theater experience I've ever had. JBX is second.

    THIS


    We have two in the Bay Area, both awesome (and exactly the same per their guidelines vs. IMAX, who'll cram their "large format" theater into a standard size one, and even smaller, based on the space they have to work with.)

    Dolby thought of everything. It'll cost you a few more bucks, but the experience will be WELL worth it.

    The only, only very specific gripe is that they aren't and will never be equipped to play IMAX 15-perf films (or any 35mm or 70mm films I believe) so IMAX has them beat there.

    But since the only person who shoots on that anymore is Chris Nolan, and the only one who seems to care about it is me, I can live with it.


    HIGHLY recommend Dolby Cinema to anyone.
