Am I really the second poster on this thread? Yes! And I could achieve the feat five hours after the genius at JT decided to put it up.

Too bad they have yet to build a "true" IMAX theater here. The ones they have now just shoehorn a larger screen into a standard movie theater (usually by removing a couple of rows of seats), so you miss the immersiveness (??) that comes with a "true" IMAX theater's concave screen and raked seating... Avatar did look pretty good, nevertheless...

I was shocked when I learned about the lack of IMAX in Japan.

sk4ek, the IMAX in Kawasaki is a true system (otherwise there's no way it can bear the logo)... I believe it was build from scratch, and it respects both the audio and the visual standards. Avatar looked very good on it

I saw "Avatar" at the Kawasaki theater. The PROJECTION/sound system is IMAX, certainly, as that is what gets the "IMAX" imprimatur, but the theater itself was part of the existing multiplex at the LaZona shopping mall. It may be nit-picking, since the movie looked great, but not having the IMAX-style seating and screen does make a difference once you've seen a movie in a full IMAX environment...

Movies cost too much here.

so why did the Takashimiya Times Square location fail, you couldn't get higher traffic than in Shinjuku, just try getting lunch up there!
