Iīm a big IMAX fan since I watched "The Dark Knight" back in 2008. Watching the Joker and his henchmen robbing the bank from the top of the roof during the intro scene was vertigo-inducing! The image was so bright and crisp and resolution so high that it was breathtaking. However, the Cinestar-IMAX Event Cinema in Berlin changed from real IMAX to digital projection last year and quality went downhill. First, I wasnīt even aware of the switch! I watched "Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows" and Titanic 3D there and wondered why the picture looked so fuzzy. At first I thought it was because they just "remastered" these movies from 35mm to 70mm, but when I heard that they use a digital projector now, the poor image quality seemed to make sense.
I really wanted to see "The Dark Knight Rises" in IMAX, but finally there was no chance, since I donīt know of any other IMAX theatre here in Germany. This really made me sad... But watching "The Dark Knight" was an experience that I will never forget!
