    Nice article, but it would be great if it were easier to tell which theaters are projecting IMAX 70mm vs. IMAX Digital, and which IMAX films are remastered from other formats. Of course not much is pure film anymore without going through digital intermediate stages between original filming and release, but it would be interesting to know what you're really looking at.

    If there's a local IMAX theatre, you'll literally have to ask--some are, some aren't.

    My main objective was to show what a crapload of film stock the process consumes. "Pure film?" Digital post-processing of film has been the norm for years.
