...trying to be helpful here...

This looks like your best bet,

Star Cinema 16
3220 23rd Ave.
Council Bluffs, IA 51503
712-256-7827

Unless of course you wanted to spend a weekend in MPLS, see the sights and sounds there and catch the movie while you're there.

Bummer you don't have more IMAX theatres in your area.

I guess I should be impressed there is more than one, eh?

My family has seen several feature films in IMAX. Frankly, we don't really go to traditional theatres very often; when we see movies, it is either IMAX or at home. IMAX is a tremendous experience, and I'm grateful that their business model (and skilled employees) allow them to present some of this mainstream content.

I'm going to have to convince the wife to see this one in IMAX...it is pretty much the only way I go to the theaters anymore....IMAX is the one environment where the sound and picture can beat what I have at home.

Fortuately, I work about 2 miles from an IMAX, so it isn't far to go.

How much do IMAX tickets run these days? I was amazed to see that regular tickets were $10.25.

Guess I'll be supporting your next speaker upgrade Spiff....I'll just look at it as a donation to your upgrade fund.

You guys are spoiled. I just went to a small theatre and saw "The Visitor" (two thumbs WAY up btw) and the tix were $12 each for a teeny tiny screen.

Your thumbs are so high that airplane pilots think you're trying to hitch a ride with them.
