I bought my ticket, I'm sitting in Row L (back) seat 4. From previous viewing experiences, I find the back row the best to take in the entire IMAX screen. The right side seemed to have more available seats than the left.

Why should we watch this movie in IMAX? There are about 30 min of footage included in this film that was shot on an IMAX camera. The Scotiabank Theatre has the most authentic IMAX experience in the city, with a square screen that stretches from floor to ceiling. The other cinemas, which offer 'Digital IMAX' are not true IMAX in the sense that they are showing the films in a letterbox/rectangular image, so the top and bottom of the original footage is cut off.

I will set up this meetup with a waiting list. To be moved to going, please announce your seat number. The seats are filling up fast, I wouldn't recommend showing up the day of the event and getting your ticket, you might find the only seats available are at the very front.

Star Trek Into Darkness IMAX 3D

Movie synopsis:

When the crew of the Enterprise is called back home, they find an unstoppable force of terror from within their own organization has detonated the fleet and everything it stands for, leaving the world in a state of crisis. With a personal score to settle, Captain Kirk leads a manhunt to a war-zone world to capture a one man weapon of mass destruction. As the heroes are propelled into an epic chess game of life and death, love will be challenged, friendships will be torn apart and sacrifices must be made for the only family Kirk has left: his crew.
