A Different Kind of Movie Experience with IMAX at SM Lanang Premier10/01/2012
I can still remember that during the times I went to Manila for my clinical practicum at the Philippine General Hospital, I listed down things I needed to accomplish before going back to my hometown- one of which is to watch a movie in an IMAX theater. I made sure to include that every year in my practicum to do's. I remembered watching Taken (in MOA) and Alice in Wonderland in 3D (also in MOA) wherein I slept for almost half of the movie because I found it too dragging for me. I also remembered hurdling the traffic all the way from Taft Avenue to North Edsa just to experience Avatar in 3D but ended up catching some much-needed sleep inside the cinema plus the fact that it was already my 5th time to watch that said movie on big screen. But hey, watching it in IMAX 3D really made a difference!
So, when I was informed that SM Cinema will be bringing IMAX in the newly-opened SM Lanang Premier here in Davao City, I couldn't help but be more excited for local movie enthusiasts like me. In addition to that, my excitement got all fired up more when SM Cinema contacted me to be one of the lucky bloggers who will get to experience it first during its opening last September 27, 2012. Of course, who am I to say NO?!

Despite having to travel for an hour to get to SM Lanang Premier and overcoming the traffic, I finally made it to the IMAX movie premiere featuring The Avengers in 3D.

IMAX utilizes the most advanced projection system in theater technology. With IMAX, the clarity and vividness of images and sounds are beyond normal standards and of crystal-clear quality. Its large curve-shaped screen extends beyond a person's peripheral vision, making the viewer feel like he's a part of the movie. The 467-seat IMAX theatre is also designed in such a way that seats are angled and steeply raked to ensure an unobstructed view of the screen wherever an audience sit. With the state-of-the-art polarized 3D glasses, IMAX can take you to an entirely different movie experience. You will surely get what you pay for!
With the IMAX opening in SM Lanang Premier as the first IMAX theater in Mindanao, Filipinos from the south can now have the chance to embark into a different kind of movie experience - an experience that takes you from the edge of your seats to a world you have never imagined - only through IMAX.
