Attended the Philippine IMAX Premiere of J. A. Bayona's Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom at the IMAX Theater, SM Megamall. It was a well attended Premiere with seats filled to the brim, i can even see people who had to make do with the side stairs. It was raining and Good thing we arrived a Full Hour before screen time. We were given complimentary popcorn buckets and drinks. There was even a Mini Oreos Dessert Buffet for guests to enjoy. I'm not really a fan of IMAX thus the 4 star rating, but i would rate the film 5 out of 5 (biased fan of the film franchise and the director). J. A. Bayona directed the critically acclaimed films The Impossible, A Monster's Call and The Orphanage. Go seek his Films out if you haven't seen it.

The Park is Gone!

Watched the first showing of Jurassic World the Fallen Kingdom last week at IMAX 5th SM Megamall. I’m so excited to watch this movie . The film starts at 5:15 pm and bought the Jurassic World tumbler popcorn 🍿 while watching the film and even wearing a Jurassic World T-shirt. It’s an 2 hours and 19 mins 127909 film . If it’s IMAX then it must be good 128076

I love dinosaurs when I was still a kid. I will not be a spoiler and all I can say is you must watch this film ! 128077

GO DEEPER INTO THE WORLD’S MOST INNOVATIVE MOVIE-GOING EXPERIENCE! 📽🎞

Well let me tell you what makes IMAX Theatre different from all other cinemas :

✔️ IMAX Sound - (Heart Pounding Audio)
An immense explosion. A whisper heard over your shoulder. The rumbling bass you feel instead of hear. The combination of their perfectly tuned integrated sound system and our precise speaker orientation ensures you can hear a pin drop and be able to tell exactly where it landed. Every note of the soundtrack and every scuff of a shoe is clearer in IMAX, with a complete overhaul of each movie’s audio overseen by the film’s director. All of this pristine sound is then pumped into a theatre that has been customized for an optimal experience.

✔️ IMAX picture - ( Awe Inspiring Images )
Clarity, detail and size make IMAX more than a movie. Our remastering — or DMR — process fully transforms every frame of a film to produce the best possible version of a filmmaker’s vision. Two projectors run simultaneously to provide the perfect image with a balance of warmth and sharpness. IMAX draws you into something as close to reality as you have .

✔️ IMAX Theatre - ( Immersive experience)
Movies are watched. But seeing a movie in an IMAX® theatre is so much more. That’s what they call The IMAX Experience®. Every element in their theatres is planned, designed and positioned with exacting standards to create the most intense experience. This science is our theatre geometry, and it ensures movie magic every time the lights go down.

✔️ IMAX Camera ( Moving Pictures)
A super-advanced piece of technology that’s been to the top of Everest, the bottom of the ocean and even to space. For over 40 years, IMAX cameras have pushed the limits of engineering and are known industry-wide as the best premium filmmaking tools available today.

Last April 25,2018, the much awaited movie of the year first day movie screening , Avengers : Infinity War 🍿127916 Lucky that hubby was able to buy advance tickets for this film .

Went to IMAX SM Megamall branch early in the morning . We got there around 7am and the mall was still close and the cinema will be open by 8am. So glad the guards allow us to enter the mall to eat at Jollibee before we go to IMAX.

Exact 8am were at IMAX and many Avengers fan are excited to see the movie . Just so sad that they don’t offer yet the Avengers Infinity War soft drink and popcorn tumblers . I want to collect those movie tumblers every time I watch a favorite blockbuster movie film. So since they don’t offer it we just entered the IMAX Theatre and just focus on the film the men wear our 3D glasses 128083

I loved the film 127909128149128077 No spoilers baka gaya ng iba ma Block sa Facebook or unfriend pa, and ayaw ko ma block dito sa Looloo.128540 better watch it na lang.128077

It’s really nice to watch blockbuster movies at IMAX Theatre. Other IMAX is at SM North Edsa, SM Aura, SM Mall of Asia, SM South Mall. Price is 450 pesos 128077

IMAX provides one of a kind movie going experience to audience all
and it’s gold standard and what any other technology has to match up to ..

Everything is good except that the center speaker is bad. There is a double "image" of the dialogue or there is reverberation of the dialogue at the center speaker. If there is no reverb i will give it a five 11088️. I wish to get a rebate when I watched Ghostbusters there. That is simply not acceptable to me. That ruined my IMAX experience.

It's been a while since I watched a movie in IMAX 3D only because I still prefer the one in SM Mall of Asia, screen-wise. Plus, I don't really like wearing 3D glasses because it's disorienting. However, when you're trapped in Megamall and want to kill time by watching a good movie, then this branch doesn't disappoint.

I watched X-Men Apocalypse and my experience was quite good. It's clean (so far) and seats were comfortable. It had its own Snack Bar, male/female washrooms and waiting area for movie patrons.

I'll probably consider watching here again if ever I'm in the mood to see another movie in IMAX.

I live how IMAX and SM always has these cute tumblers! Today, we got the charlie brown and snoopy tumblers! (But we didn't watch the movie yet!) HAHAH! It's 149 for the tumbler and additional 30pesos for the drink. You can also bring and have it refilled next time!

Sorry no photo 128522

Second time to watch a movie in IMAX and like the first, it's for free! Don't you just love generous friends 128512

Anyway, we watched Star Wars: The Force Awakens. IMAX made the movie 10x awesome. The picture quality is out of this world, i can almost touch Hans Solo's face. The audio needs a lil improvement, i think Atmos has better sound quality.

I ain't a fan of Sci Fi. But I liked episode 7, i am familiar with the timeline and some of the characters. Who can forget the I love you scene between Leia and Hans...

And yes, i want a BB8 for my birthday.

Watched Star Wars awhile ago!

Bought tickets in advance( the day before) and we were super glad there were seats left!

455 pesos each person! But, it was soooo worth it!

Such an awesome movie and my family super enjoyed the time spent here! It was actually my first time here in Megamall's Imax, I have been to the one at MOA. They are similar, the screen is curved. The MOA seating is slightly steeper though. We were at row E and it was okay. Not so bad. 3D experience was awesome! Very clear !

The entrance and the interiors were filled with star wars decorations! So yeah, picture picture! 128541128541

Just watched Maleficent with my bf today in the IMAX theater... First for us!

Honestly, I don't really like 3D... It makes me dizzy... But somehow, this one didn't make me nauseous, so yey!128522 First, the waiting area is spacious but the seats were not cushy! The comfort room was pretty clean, with toilet paper!128077

The 3D glasses were okay, relatively new...128516 the theater was big, can seat a lot of people, but there wasn't much leg room. And you can't lift the seats, anti-cuddling seats!128563 on the upside, the seats were comfortable... I also have to say that the theater was very cold!10052️ The sound was okay, not as sharp as that of the Atmos cinemas...
Overall, my experience was okay, but for P450, I'd rather watch in BGC cinemas...

The movie was good! Very touching and the costumes were great!128077

A little bit strapped for the Spiderman movie but I did catch up in the best way possible. 3D!

Pretty much the same with other IMAX theaters, well cooled with spacious and snug seats.

I didn't like the waiting area, most people were standing while some were on the floor. They provided a long bench or pew or whatever you may want to call it that can only accommodate 20 people.

The movie was great! Sayang si Gwen, dapat si Spiderman na lang namatay. Haha!

First time to watch a movie at IMAX and it was soooo awesome! Really awesome especially because the movie we watched was The Amazing Spider Man 2 which we all know has very good effects/ graphics that makes it worth watching on imax. Yes it was a bit expensive but it was worth every cent.

We're planning to watch Godzilla here next time hahaha 128556

My first IMAX experience so I can't compare it yet. But so far it's worth the penny... By the way, who wouldn't love seeing Spider-Man in a 3D??? :D

Yaaaay!! An IMAX near me!!! No need to go to Taguig or Pasay. 127881127882

Everything was good except the air-conditioning! Ang JINIT JACKSON seryoso. Well not actually hot but there was no trace of coldness kahit onte wala talaga. Err.

Anyway, I liked the movie! Though the main conflicts were not original ideas, they were executed pretty well and the movie had a different twist that set them apart from other movies that used the similar idea. And I loved that you can see the movie's part in the whole marvel/avenger franchise. 128076 Yung 3D lang talaga, asan na? Haha.

IMAX is an acronym for Image MAXimum.

It is a motion picture film format and a set of cinema projection standards developed by Graeme Ferguson, Roman Kroitor, Robert Kerr, and William C. Shaw.

IMAX has the capacity to record and display images of far greater size and resolution than conventional film systems.

As of the end of 2013, there are 837 IMAX theaters in 57 countries.

The newest addition to this growing number is the IMAX theater in SM Megamall D. The oversized screen, surround sound, and steep seating for better viewing, helped create a larger and more realistic experience for me. It was as if I was IN the movie. Really cool!

IMAX is my favorite movie theater here in the country. Not only that it gives you great and stunning visuals, but it also makes the whole theater fall apart because of the monstrous and merciless bass sound that it can produce.

Megamall has the newest IMAX theater so I was really excited to check it out. It's just a pain to get there as it's located on the 5th floor.

What's good about it is that it's just a few steps away from the skating rink. Maybe next time I'll skate for a couple of hours and then watch an awesome movie. 128077

Since the theater is new, everything looks good. One possible downside would be the small lobby. Just imagine how chaotic it'd be once they start showing Marvel movies such as Spiderman2 and Cap America Winter Soldier.

The movie itself was great. I enjoyed it! I never got the chance to watch the original version of the movie. But critics say that if you've watch the first one, you won't enjoy this new one. Not sure why.

Will definitely watch this again once they come out with a second one... or even a third installment. 128516127881
