For the second time ever, I am about to take the IMAX plunge with a film. The first Beowulf and now The Dark Knight. The Robert Zemeckis film was in 3-D, and I had to go the Sony Metreon in San Francisco to see Before the Devil Knows You're Dead at that time (it would take another five or six weeks to make it to Marin County) anyway.
So, The Dark Knight is in some ways the first film where it and it alone has motivated me to pay up for the IMAX experience. Christopher Nolan and others associated with the film have majorly talked up the IMAX-ification of the film, saying that it allows for a much greater image quality than anything else. According to http://www.fandango.com/, six separate sequences of The Dark Knight were filmed with IMAX cameras.
Showtimes at the Metreon on opening day are 10:00, 1:30, 5:00, 8:30 and 12:00 midnight. Tickets are on-sale.
Is this a prudent move on my part? Or have I just been bitten by the bat bug?
