That is why I usually seek out Regal RPX or Carmike XD theaters. They at least are a big screen experience.
Although I am going to the TCL Chinese Theatre IMAX on Monday night. (This is the former Grauman's Chinese Theatre that was redone as a large format IMAX.)
Also going to the Van Nuys Plant 16 theater on Tuesday to experience DBox motion seats.
Here is a time lapse video of the renovation of the Chinese Theatre:
