    IMAX at DTD

    The AMC theatre site has under the coming soon category, an IMAX theatre at DTD.

    Don't know when or where, but could be a possible use for the Virgin Records store that is about to be vacant.

    Looks like that will be good timing with Disney re-releasing some movies in 3-D & IMAX. Also good for the Nature series.

    This was posted yesterday in the Rumors forum as well.

    Although it is possible they may use the Virgin location, it is probably more likely they will retrofit and existing theater or two. Otherwise they would need to duplicate ticket sales, concessions, etc. in the other building.

    That's true. I think it is great for Disney to get an ImMAX, no matter where they put it. I still hope the new nature movie is available in IMAX, but can't find any indication that it will be. The nearest options for me if it is would be Atlanta or Orlando.

    Long overdue. Disney World needs an 3D IMAX theater. Looking forward to "Up" and "Toy Story" in 3D IMAX!

    I think this would be a good idea for DTD - a good fit with their direction.

    Re: IMAX at DTD

    I think its a good choice.
    I know Disneyland Paris has a theater in their Downtown Disney.
    It's a good way to advertise new movies to guests and it lets guests who have seen posters for certain movies throughout the park enjoy the movies right on their trip.

    I know a lot of international people come to Disney, but it takes longer for certain Disney movies to come out here in Europe. if I'm vacationing in Disney, I get to watch those movies a lot earlier than if I had to wait for them here. Bolt just got released in the Netherlands like a week ago.
