    Actually, now that you mention it, I did see one in IMAX 3D: Walking With Dinosaurs or something like that at the Science Center in Seattle. It was pretty cool, but I can see what you mean if you've seen a bunch of documentary type stuff in that format.

    I wasn't counting that as my first IMAX cinematic experience, though.

      Am I the only one who's reminded a bit of Alice in Wonderland when you read the description that it's all in her head? I mean...she is blonde and all. Maybe it's just me.

        we have an Omni like that. iMax isn't the 180 degree hemisphere that the Omni is. we have at least 3 iMaxs in the area.

          Movie theatre IMAX and museum IMAX are very different.

          Movie theatre IMAX has about 100 speakers behind the screen, along with the surround sound.

                I have the Regal club card, so you get great coupons with your tickets (plus a free ticket for every 10, I think) Tuesday used to be a free small popcorn, now it's a dollar. For 50 cents more they make it a large, so it's a great deal!

                My son and I go at least once a month, depends on what's out...we save IMAX for the big ones like Star Trek and Tron.

                  That is what it's based off of.

                    Yup, that Regal card actually pays off when you take the whole family on a semi-regular basis.

                        So, the movie was good. I don't even know how to describe it. Not exactly what I expected, but I don't mean that in a bad way.

                        It was a little confusing, so it'll hard to say much without spoiling something. In the end, I was even a little confused as to what exactly happened, because it goes in and out of fantasy pretty much all the way through. Reminded me of the end of Shutter Island, only in the sense that I was sitting there going, "What? What just happened?"

                        The action, what there was of it, and I will say there isn't as much as the previews would lead you to believe, was big, loud, crazy stuff...good fun, girls kickin' butt kind of stuff. The sound in the IMAX was astonishing in this movie. I'd say it's worth seeing in the theater just for the fight scenes. It is also cleaner than I expected, given the subject matter. There is no nudity, I don't even remember any cussing, but because of the intense subject matter and implied abuse I would not recommend taking any kids to this.

                            It's hard to spoil when I'm not sure exactly what happened....lol. However, see below. SPOILER ALERT IN WHITE...don't highlight or quote this unless you want to find something out about the end of the movie:

                            The whole movie is based around Baby Doll, until the very end, where it's actually Sweet Pea that gets away from the sleazy bad guys by running off and hopping a bus. At least that's what we're led to believe, but then the bus driver turns out to be Scott Glenn's character, who up to that point only existed in Baby Doll's fantasy world as a sort of Sensei-type person. So, then you wonder if her escaping is a sub-level of the fantasy or if it actually happened.

                              Yeah, I watched it last night and I still dunno what happened. Haha. It was a great movie though, on that I'm sure of.

                              By the way, fishAK, I have a semi-response to your spoiler alert in my own below this text.

                              Remember in the beginning when they were talking about the various shapes guardian angels could take? Scott Glenn's character was the guardian angel. The question I'm still wondering is, was he Baby Doll's or Sweet Pea's?

                                Code Seven--that is the question, when you break it all down, isn't it? Still don't know...

                                Good flick, though!
