Some AMC Imax have recliner seats...my local AMC has their Imax auditorium set up exactly like the Dolby auditorium but with a bigger 1:90:1 Imax screen ratio so you'll get the best of both world.

Unless it's real IMAX, which are mostly the old ones, go with Dolby Cinema.

What is the difference between real IMAX and fake IMAX?

After seeing my first Dolby Cinema movie, never going back to IMAX. At my theater the IMAX screen is a bit bigger than Dolby, but the chairs and sound quality in the Dolby room can't be beat.

The AMC by me just had a laser system installed in their IMAX so will be interesting to watch this on that screen and see how it differs from the old IMAX screen. There's a Dolby Cinema there too, but that one particular auditorium isn't showing Ad Astra.

Wow small world indeed...I guess you didn't get a chance to check out that Imax auditorium because I believe Halloween did played in Imax for one week.

Fake Imax is still more immersive than Dolby if the movie was shot in Imax. Yes...Dolby picture is better than Imax but not by that much. Most people will not be able to tell the difference in picture quality unless they can see both screen side by side. But you will notice a big difference when you watch movies that has Imax scenes because of the expanded Imax picture ratio. I might be a little biased because my local AMC Imax has recliner seats.
