The Wizard Of Oz To Return To Theaters In 3D And IMAX This Fall
There are movie moments that we experience as kids that stick with us forever. The slow pan across Willy Wonka's Chocolate Factory is one of them. And the sight of Dorothy stepping out of her black-and-white home and into the colorful world of Oz is another. Done right, a movie can capture the wonder and beauty of the imagination with awe-inspiring grace, creating a visual that allows a child - and kids at heart - to believe in magic, if only at the movies.

Why You Must See The Dark Knight Rises In IMAX
Not all Hollywood IMAX releases are created equal, and by shooting sections of The Dark Knight using actual IMAX cameras, Christopher Nolan raised the bar for feature films that use the format-- and he's done it again with The Dark Knight Rises. Containing over an hour of IMAX footage, the movie leaps up on the giant screen, absorbing and lush and practically enveloping the audience in its 70 mm celluloid.

UPDATED: Man Of Steel Not Going To IMAX 3D After All

The Hunger Games Catching Fire To Be Released In IMAX Theaters
One of the things I regret not getting around to doing when The Hunger Games hit theaters was seeing it on an IMAX screen. While our own Katey Rich made a good point in saying why she was glad she'd avoided seeing the film on an IMAX screen, I can't help but think that the futuristic world of Panem and the lush setting of the arena in which the "Games" took place were probably quite a sight on the giant screen.
