Saw Dune Part 2 on 70mm IMAX here, was amazing! Incredibly thankful to have this theater in the area.

(1) Philadelphia Inquirer reports that the movie “Cabrini” locally financed, had a recent red carpet premiere attended by the film’s directors & several lead actors. The movie opens nationwide this week, including here. I will post my photo of the poster in the theater. (2) I had never stepped into the IMAX, but last year, saw “Oppenheimer” in 70mm IMAX here & wrote about it Last week, I saw in 70mm IMAX here both the “Tenet” reissue and on Thursday, opening day, “Dune Part 2” and enjoyed all these 70mm IMAX screenings

Regal is advertising this Theatre as “King of Prussia with IMAX & 4DX”. What auditorium is the 4DX at?

Tenet is returning to the IMAX Theatre in 70mm for 1 week in February. Will be the only location in SE Pennsylvania to show this film. Next closest location is AMC Lincoln Square 13 in Manhattan.

Really enjoyed seeing Oppenheimer in IMAX here. Long live 70mm IMAX.

While purchasing IMAX 70 tickets for the last day of Oppenheimer, I asked the manager if the theater was still equipped for 5 perf 70mm and she said they were NOT. Sniff. Does anyone know what happened to the 70mm projectors installed for Hateful 8?

CF100: From what I gathered taking to an IMAX tech is the 3d setup for GT is too pricey to be worth it. IMAX does have a lens for the single laser setup that will allow it to project 1.43 but brightness is not up to par yet and with so little IMAX films actually coming out in 1.43 it doesn’t make enough sense. NOW on the brightside there’s a chance Oppenheimer will open in 70mm

CF100 on July 23, 2022 at 6:36 pm

Seanf: The single laser (“Commercial Laser”) IMAX projection system is excellent; except that, for reasons presumably known only to IMAX, it supports 1.9:1 only. (Thinking about it, perhaps the “dual lens” used with the single projection system for 3D makes it unviable to also have a changeover to a vertical anamorphic lens for 1.43:1?)

Going by LF Examiner, the screen size at this venue is 71ft. wide and 51ft. high. Too bad, then, that the single laser projection was installed, as 1.43:1 continues to be used for selected releases.

Whilst this is an existent site, parent company Cineworld Group have opened new builds with 1.43:1 screens with the single IMAX with Laser projection system installed. A recent example is Cineworld Ashford, the IMAX auditorium of which (in a newly-built extension) only opened a few months ago; screen size is also at the ~70ft. mark, which is within the capability of the single laser projection system. All a bit odd…

This is a 16 screen not 17, it’s also a single laser IMAX, not dual :(

HowardBHaas: Good to hear that it does offer a “premium” experience.

It’s not that there is no difference between operators' own-brand “Premium Large Format” (such as “RPX”) auditoria and “regular.” As you say, you would expect a relatively big screen, high-end projection/sound, etc.

For a proprietary premium format such as ScreenX (with the image extended along the sidewalls using additional projectors)–if the contract (with CJ4DPLEX of South Korea–yes, the “dreaded” 4DX is from the same company!) is terminated, then ScreenX versions of releases (which contain the additional image data for the sidewall projection) won’t be supplied.

Therefore, (even if retained) the sidewall projection can’t be used. By definition, it’s no longer a “ScreenX” auditorium.

Whereas, removing “RPX” branding would make no difference if nothing else has changed–the auditorium would still provide the same experience…

Maintaining a “premium” experience does require upgrading to meet current expectations. Perhaps that explains what’s happened here; for example, if the RPX lacks Dolby Atmos? This is certainly specified for parent company Cineworld’s “Superscreen” PLF own-brand auditoria.

HowardBHaas on January 31, 2022 at 2:39 pm

I’ve seen a movie in the RPX there. It is a much larger screen. Not matted for ‘scope films. Seats are nicer. I believe sound is better. The auditorium looks & functions much differently than the regular auditoriums.

CF100 on January 31, 2022 at 12:09 pm

“RPX” is their own “Premium Large Format” brand; they can call any auditorium they like “RPX”* (unlike, e.g., IMAX, where IMAX supply all equipment, auditoria are built or modified per IMAX spec., IMAX-specific versions of releases are supplied, etc.)

If they have dropped the “RPX” branding, then it would still be equipped with the same projection/sound, unless equipment was downgraded?

(*Regal’s website says the following: “[RPX provides] a giant immersive screen [which] is illuminated by high-quality digital projectors and completed with a state-of-the-art sound system.”)

HowardBHaas on January 28, 2022 at 5:56 am

I have right up there in the Intro that Aud 12 is the RPX. I fully expect it is still being used as RPX.

crunchocky on January 27, 2022 at 8:55 pm

I’m not sure what to make of the RPX, from the pictures it appears to be Theatre 12. 12 is playing Spider Man at 2:50, 6:30, and 10:05. The 2:50 looks to be at RPX price ($16.40) and the other two shows are standard price ($14.10).

On both the Regal website, and Fandango, for this theatre, it is only listing for the premium screens for IMAX and 4DX. I would assume the RPX was converted back to a regular screen.

CF100 on January 10, 2022 at 4:16 pm

Cinedelphia: According to LF Examiner – Theatres Listing, “KOP” is equipped with both IMAX Laser GT dual projection and IMAX 70mm projection.

IMAX Laser GT projection is intended to replace IMAX 70mm projection, and this has been the case for most venues. But not all–the IMAX in London’s Science Museum (recently refurbished) is one that retained 15/70 projection. (Not that there’s much point…!)

The BFI London IMAX is an oddity, given it’s very much an iconic venue. However, a scheme to redevelop the site it’s on and surroundings is in the planning stages. BFI have signed confidentiality agreements with respect to this. Whilst a replacement IMAX, one might imagine, would be likely (à la Darling Harbour IMAX, Sydney,) it’s hard not to draw conclusions on why responses such as the one offered to yourself are given to queries about IMAX Laser GT not being installed.

I just read that the IMAX is getting 4K Dual Laser Projection. I would assume there are some other renovations going on as well. When I was in London a few years back, the projectionist at the BFI IMAX told me they couldn’t get Laser Projection because IMAX would not put in 4K Laser in theaters which still had 70mm IMAX.I wonder if that policy has changed or if KOP is loosing 70mm…that would be a shame.

The 4DX auditorium has signs posted mentioning Lightening, Snow, Fog, Wind, Motion, and more! 2 different signs on each side of the auditorium entry, each side stating different effects.

The 4DX screen opened at King of Prussia with the opening of Avengers: Endgame

greenth1ng on February 12, 2019 at 11:03 pm

@HowardBHaas Could be either 4DX or ScreenX going into that one particular auditorium.

HowardBHaas on February 10, 2019 at 5:08 am

Auditorium 10, one of the largest auditoriums as my Intro says, was closed off yesterday “hard hat only” I am not sure, but I think they may be converting it to 4 D (which I have no interest in). I was there to see the spectacular WW1 docu “They Shall Not Grow Old”

Mikeoaklandpark on August 15, 2017 at 12:21 pm

This really reminds me of 1982 when Spielberg would not allow any theater that was showing ET in 70MM to use the masking even though he masked the film and it was like 70MM but 1.85

Mikeoaklandpark on August 15, 2017 at 12:17 pm

I feel the same way Cinedelphia especially since the Regal here will only use the masking in the 4 large theaters that have the side to side masking. The others have vertical masking and they won’t use it.

Cinedelphia on August 14, 2017 at 7:36 pm

Only been in the IMAX for Dunkirk and it was a very good experience. Can’t comment on the masking issue. The last time I was at UA Oxford Valley and UA Grant Plaza (within the last 3-6 months) they were still using the masking at both complexes. In fact, prior to the 2.39 to 1 films begin they pulled back the side masking. Kind of reminded me of when there were curtains. I always loved the effect of the side masking being retracted…it was a nice effect. The current trend of no masking IMO, is just a tacky cost saving measure. I wish some film makers and studios would take a stand with the theater chains. It just cheapens the whole experience. If I want the black bars I can stay home and watch my 55" Sony.
