I saw Batman on Imax here in Buffalo over the weekend.

The movie was great (a far better prequel than Star Wars 3).

However, the Imax is really wasted for this.  Because the film is
widescreen, only the middle third (quarter?) of the Imax screen gets
used, so it's about like looking at the movie on a normal projection,
provided your film jock knows how to get the focus right.

It's not like the releases (I've heard) of mainstream movies that are
recut to fit the Imax aspect ratio.  Too bad I wasn't able to see one
of those.
