No Transformers Movie at IMAX for Sydney Australia

Postby i_amtrunks » Sun Sep 23, 2007 11:21 pm

Bad news for those in Australia hoping that Melbourne would not be the only place getting the Transformers Movie on the IMAX screen.

I received an email from Paul Travis, the Operations Manager of IMAX Sydney, confirming that they will not be showing it.

We have decided not to screen Transformers as we did not feel that a film that had already been released in main stream cinema was the correct business decision for the Sydney Theatre.

We are looking forward to our next feature film release, Beowulf, in November.

Regards,

PAUL TRAVIS
Operations Manager
LG IMAX Theatre Sydney

So Melbourne, the city of AFL and Trams seems to be the only place to see Transformers on the IMAX Screen. To see the session times for the Melbourne screenings, check out the IMAX Melbourne Site

They effectively did lock us up.. just outside of the CBD, but we did get a paid day off for it.

Hey Burn, you should know about the rules of League;
1: Support your team, and whoever Manly are playing!!!
2: Queensland never give up in Origin
3: Pick the opposite teams to Peter Sterling.
I'm a Queensland supporter, so I wanted a Melbourne vs. North Queensland Final, since Melbourne is all Redcliffe and Norths Juniors! 8)

I'm a Melbournian and proud of it! Go to hell, Sydney!! HA!!! Sorry, Megatron made me say that. But really, I'll be thinking of you guys as I watch the movie (again) in Ultra Magnus Wide-Screen. (Would you believe this Sydney - Melbourne rivalry dates way back to 1854?? Loooong story...)

That blows for you Wallabies! I must admit though that the theatre was sooooooooooooooooooooo empty. It honestly had an echo. At most 20 people when it could easily seat 500+. The movie was 10 times better on IMAX though. The extra scenes did not make it for me but the better sound allowed me to hear some more of the dialogue that was missed watching it on a regular screen. Getting old I guess. Hearing not as good.

Surprising. There are 3 IMAXes showing it around Toronto and its suburbs. Our GTA population though is 5 million +.

Do you guys only have like one IMAX in your whole damn country? I've been to one in Chattanooga, TN, for gods sake! That's close to some serious redneck territory, too.

I think it's 4... Dreamworld on the Gold Coast has one too (although I think it's a normal screen that shows the IMAX films...)

Wow...that's kind of sad. Considering your population I'd think there'd be more. I mean, most of you live in the cities or suburbs, right? But then again, we Americans like everything supersized: our food, our coffee, and our tv (and movie) screens.

We have plenty of Commercial (and arty) Cinemas that deal with the everyday films and international films.

The IMAX screens are usually used for documentaries and the like.

And I think there are 5 IMAX screens, Katoomba has what was the 2nd largest screen in Australia before IMAX Melbourne opened up. (But it is not owned by IMAX)

I always though it was support your team, and whoever Manly or the Bulldogs are playing... and if they are playing each other then pray for a giant asteroid to fall on the stadium. 8)

I am so conflicted over the grand final. Do I cheer for the trophy to go interstate or do I cheer for (shudders) Manly :???:

We also watch documentaries (like about the sea and stuff) on IMAX. I think I've seen the ocean one, the Grand Canyon one (like 12 or 13 years ago), something called L5 First City in Space (which was 3D) and Mount Everest. But the IMAX in Nashville also shows movies, such as Harry Potter. I don't know if it's showing Transformers.

Edit: It sure is! It's open now. I wanna see it now.

The majority of the Storm are Queenslanders (Yes Burn, I know Slater is from your Town), so even for NSW supporters, the trophy going to them has to beat the undeserving Jamie Lyon getting his unclean hands all over the trophy!

And I'd be ecstatic if a meteorite took out The Bulldogs and Manly!

Back on track, did anyone venture out to see Transformers at the Drive-ins? there are 2 left in NSW, how many left elsewhere?

(I didnt bother because the screen at Blacktown Drive-in is terrible, and they also have the largest Multiplex Screen in Australia a few clicks down the road!)

I really don't know who to go for since the Broncos and the cowboys are both knocked out now...
I'll add another signature to the meteor petition :grin:

There is one Drive-in left in Queensland. The Yatala Drive in: http://www.drive-intheatre.com.au/index.htm
They've moved on from Transformers now though.
