IMAX Tickets for some ‘Eclipse’ Showings already on Sale

Think it’s too early to buy tickets for “Eclipse”? Think again—especially if you want to see it in IMAX. Whether you’re buying directly through your local theater, or through a mega-site like Fandango or Moviefone, in some places they’re already for sale. So why should you be more vigilant about scoring tickets for “Eclipse” (more so than you were about “Twilight” or “New Moon”)? Because this release offers something unprecedented in the Twilight realm: it has been formatted for viewing on IMAX.

I learned the difference the hard way, when I went to see “New Moon”, and shelled out more than twice the price for the IMAX ticket. It turns out that seeing a film in an IMAX theater is different from seeing a film produced specifically for “The IMAX Experience”. In the case of the former, a special lens is used with the projector to allow for a standard movie picture to be shown on the larger screen. So, if you saw “Twilight” or “New Moon” in an IMAX theater, it was simply blown up to show a larger version of the original. Films that are truly formatted for The IMAX Experience utilize special technology that allows the movie to be played on all planes of a semi-globular screen. So this year’s much-awaited release of “Eclipse” will be an unprecedented event.
