Imax, coming soon to a NoVa theater near you
"Alice" fans, you now have another option if you want to go through the looking glass, Imax-style.
AMC Tysons Corner plans to open a new Imax auditorium next Friday to coincide with the release of Tim Burton's "Alice in Wonderland" in Imax 3D. In addition to the trippy Mad Hatter tale, other upcoming releases on the shopping mall cineplex's massive, immersive Imax screen may include include "Shrek Forever After," "Iron Man 2" and "Toy Story 3."
This is good news for people who like their movies huge but don't always feel like traveling to one of the Smithsonian Imax venues to see them that way.The Tysons locations joins several other local theaters -- including AMCs Columbia, Hoffman Center and Potomac Mills -- that also have Imax screens as part of their multiplex mix.
So let me get this straight. D.C. has two Imax theaters, NoVa has three and Maryland has ... one? In Howard County? What, don't people in MoCo and Prince George's also deserve to see the Cheshire Cat's grin blown up to an overwhelmingly toothy degree?
