Last year they hit the 2,000,000 mark on Nov 29th. So they are right on pace with last year.

Looks like the IMAX theater is undergoing major renovations and will be closed from Jan 15 - Mar 30

No longer will be branded as an IMAX either, moving forward it is the Lozier Giant Screen Theater.

Projection, seating, lighting, and sound will all be updated.

Hard to believe its 21 years old already!

Is "IMAX" starting to become a thing of the past?

Thanks for posting. I wonder if they are changing the screen size or leaving it the same.

I would be surprised if it was changed. No option to go larger and I really see no benefit in going small. They can always use only a portion of it if needed for a specific film.

Guess only ----- but since IMAX is film based and needed to be filmed and projected with Special IMAX sized film it has been matched with digital technology. Anything on IMAX can be diligently converted assuming the rights issue is covered is my guess. In addition with Digital it will open up to other sources for content not being tied to IMAX film only. If IMAX has goon digital already then some of this may be off but there would still be a licensing component to calling it a IMAX theater and only being able to project the film.

I know some people at the zoo, and they always said that the amount of movies they could get were getting more and more limited because they still used the old style imax film. Part of the reason why they've had almost the same movies for over 2 years now.
