OK. I've already seen the movie, but I want to go again. I am traveling to the Dallas, TX area. Here is my "dilemma" that I am facing....

1) Drive 8 minutes to see it again in an awesome Cinemark XD (super large screen) theater in 3D.
2) Drive 15 minutes to see it again in a super plush theater (Look Cinemas) with power recliners and cool Dolby Atmos sound in 3D.
3) Drive 30 minutes to see it again at a Premiere Cinema in 3D with DBox motion seats...

Why can't I get all of these combined into one theater (3D, giant screen, Dolby Atmos, and DBox.... Grrr)

Place your votes. I need to decide by 3:00pm Central time tomorrow (Monday).
Capt'n America - Which Experience
Only one choice allowed (13 total votes)
Giant Screen - 3 (23%)
Atmos Sound - 8 (62%)
DBox Motion Seats - 2 (15%)
Voting on this poll ends: 04/14/14 04:00 PM

You said previously that you had been to atmos theaters and it was meh. What was atmos like when you saw CA , perhaps you can use this opportunity to compare the 2 sound formats.

I have heard Dolby Atmos with the movie Brave at the El Capitan theater in Hollywood (the whole sound experience was great) and then again with Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey. I still liked it, but I also wonder if it is more because the theaters have their sound "dialed in" better. Interestingly the Cinemark XD theater mentioned above is where I saw the Hobbit a couple of years ago, but they aren't doing Captain in Atmos in the same exact theater.

Then again, I should probably expect a lopsided vote here anyway towards audio, since this is an audio forum. I haven't voted yet, so I can't see my own results until either I do or until the poll closes tomorrow.

I usually hit up the West Plano Cinemark, the one right across the parking lot from the Cinemark offices.

The movie was shot, mostly, here in Cleveland. They closed the West Shoreway for two weeks and blew a bunch of cars up downtown.

Your poll raises an interesting point.
Why can't a theater have multiple features.
The aquarium we visited last month had air, shakers, wind, etc, in their "4D" theater. Why can't your typical cinema?
