I just got back from our local IMAX theater to see Disney's Beauty and the Beast. All I can say is that is looked and sounded AWESOME!!! I was a little skeptical going in because usually with this sort of feature, they just blow up the 35mm print. Not in this case. All of the images were stored digitally to begin with so the producers went back and tranferred the digital images to the large format film. The picture is amazing. There is absolutely zero film grain and the colors are deep and rich with no distortion at all. The animated characters look clean with smooth looking lines. The sound has also been beefed up. Lots of split surround action with plenty of low frequency bass. Towards the end when the townspeople were banging on the door of the castle with a log, I could feel the bass all through my body. The sound was overall very dynamic. The DVD should be coming out soon and hopefully be treated to the same digital transfer. If so, it will look and sound quite good. BUT, if you have an IMAX theater nearby, I highly recommend going. It will never look this good anywhere.
