IMAX Rip-Off: Does This Anger You?

Funny man Aziz Ansari has stumbled upon an IMAX controversy and he is mad. Ansari discovered over the weekend that the IMAX experience you pay an extra $5 for doesn't necessarily mean you get the giant screen.


Witness his rage:

I went with a friend of mine to see Star Trek: The IMAX Experience at the AMC Theatre in Burbank today . . . HOWEVER, we get in the theatre and its just a slightly bigger than normal screen and NOT the usual standard huge 72 ft IMAX screen. I was very upset and apparently this problem is happening all over at Regal and AMC theatres.

Basically, the company has a fancy digital-projection system that fits onto regular screens. Ansari hilariously refers to this regular-sized screen you pay extra for as "BULLSH*T IMAX" and is urging a boycott of all things IMAX-related. One reporter, who analyzed this deception almost a year ago, has this to say about it: "I object when anyone claims that two patently different things are the same. Where I come from that's known as 'lying.'"

I never knew that I could pay five extra bucks and only get a regular-sized screen. What about you? Does this outrage you?
