Upgrade Your Movie Experience at the Portage IMAX


Summer movie season is coming fast, and with that means big budget, blockbuster, popcorn munching movies that must be experienced on the best screens possible. Goodrich Quality Theaters Portage IMAX has several options to watch your favorite movie that you may not know about.

Aside from the normal screen experience, which most of us are already familiar with, and an incredible experience with high quality HD video and audio, Portage IMAX offers GDX, IMAX, Dolby Atmos, and Dbox seats.

GDX, or Giant Digital Experience is Goodrich Quality Theaters’ premium large format theater experience with crystal clear imaging and an amazing, bright picture, delivering movies on a massive scale with massive sound. All GDX theaters feature Dolby Atmos for powerful and immersive sound-listening experiences. Dolby Atmos adds overhead speakers for the most realistic sound effects you’ve ever heard. 4K projection gives you the most vivid colors with the sharpest details, brightest images and highest resolution picture available.

Watch a movie or be part of one. IMAX is the difference. It’s the world’s most immersive movie experience. The state-of-the-art technology and architecture makes the movie so real, you’ll forget you’re in a theater.

IMAX grabs your senses. Visually, there is no frame. The picture’s bigger, higher, wider than your field of view. You’re no longer at the window peeking out; you’re outside among the stars. And that sensation is intensified by the sound. It’s all around you and it’s real – so much so that the whole experience is visceral. You don’t just hear and see an IMAX movie. You feel it in your bones.

There’s a complex web of high technology and architecture that makes an IMAX movie real – and it’s largely stuff that IMAX invented. IMAX is committed to pushing the boundaries and doing things no one in cinema has ever done before.

IMAX provides the highest-resolution cameras in the world, the brightest projection lights, and a sound system so precise you can hear a pin drop from across the room and know exactly where it fell. Every IMAX® theater is customized with a patented screen and seating design to ensure you’re always in the center of the action – no matter where you’re sitting.

Enter a new world of sound with Dolby Atmos. A leap forward from surround sound, it transports you into the story with moving audio that fills the cinema and flows all around you to deliver the premier sound of entertainment. You’ll feel like you’re inside the action as the sounds of people, places, things, and music come alive with breathtaking realism and move throughout the space. Immersive and emotive, Dolby Atmos is sound you can feel—sound that creates a powerfully moving entertainment experience.

Motion editing is a new artform, a new sophisticated discipline where art meets technology meets cinema. It leads to the rise of MFX, a multi-sensorial revolution in movie-watching and gaming. Action becomes motion. Sounds become motion. Events become motion. Brace yourself for an entirely new, unforgettably immersive experience.

All of this MFX fun is made possible by patented, award-winning D-BOX® technology. Only D-BOX® offers you MFX using 3 types of intelligent movement (subtle pitch, roll and heave) to move you gently forwards and backwards, from side to side and up & down. Combine that with the D-BOX-encoded intelligent vibrations and it all comes together to create the most amazing, all-encompassing entertainment experience ever.

Don’t forget, that sooner you see the movie after the release date, the bigger the screen it will be playing on. As it comes closer to the wrap up date in the theaters, it may only be available on a normal screen, and while that is still an incredible experience, you won’t want to miss it on one of the other bigger screens. Especially if there’s a lot of action in it! See you at the movies.
