AMC IMAX screen

IMAX is not your ordinary movie experience and the first time I watched a movie in this format, it was like stepping into another world. Right now, AMC’s IMAX theatres have luxe recliners so you’re immediately comfortable as soon as you get to your seat. Then, as the lights dim, you should prepare yourself to be blown away by the visuals. IMAX with Laser, in particular, is the best there is. It’s designed to transport you into the heart of the action with images so clear they’ll make you feel like you’re right there in the movie.

But it’s not just about what you see—it’s also about what you hear. The sound system is carefully tuned so that every sound is crystal clear. And let’s not forget about the theater itself – IMAX theaters are specially designed to optimize your viewing experience with its seating arrangement, seat controls and acoustics.

How Much are AMC IMAX Tickets?

IMAX is a premium format cinema which means the price of a ticket is higher than AMC’s standard laser or digital cinemas. In Atlanta, here are the AMC ticket prices:

AMC Southlake 24

  • Adult $19.49
  • Child $16.49
  • Senior $17.99


  • Adult $20.49
  • Child $17.49
  • Senior $18.99

If you go early, say a 1pm or 3pm showtime, you may be able to take advantage of IMAX matinee rates which is around 20 to 25% cheaper than the late afternoon and evening tickets.

IMAX Theatre vs. Standard Theatre

How different is an IMAX theatre compared to a standard one? Is it worth paying $6 to $10 more per ticket?

IMAX is known for giving viewers a larger-than-life cinematic experience and it features an expanded aspect ratio of 1.43:1 or 1.90:1. This offers up to 26% more picture compared to standard widescreen formats like the typical 2.39:1 ratio. This means more of the action is visible on screen.

But it’s not just about the aspect ratio—IMAX theaters are designed for maximum impact. With steeper stadium seating arrangements, you’ll enjoy a better audio experience that complements the breathtaking visuals.

Take, for example, highly anticipated films like Avatar 2 and DUNE, which were shot using IMAX-certified cameras for optimal visual quality. Watching these films in IMAX allows you to fully appreciate the immersive aspect ratio and specialized cinematographic techniques used in their production. Plus, with the option for IMAX 3D, you can dive even deeper into the action especially for the underwater sequences in Avatar 2.

So, when it comes to choosing between AMC IMAX and standard theaters, there is one key difference: you get an immersive experience with IMAX.

What Customers Say About AMC IMAX

Here are some reviews from people who have watched movies at AMC’s IMAX theatres:

Reginald Torres

AMC is the best!

The AMCs in my region have all upgraded to heated/cooled recliners in all theatres and the audio is top notch IMAX/Dolby Atmos level and above throughout. The most recent updated theatres have full on bar and food now. The quality of service provided, cleanliness, and quality of theatre beats most other theatres I’ve been to in my area by a landslide. And while my home theater is quite good, I appreciate the experience from going to the actual AMC cinemas.

Max Gaxiola

I’m in the Bay Area I love my local AMC!

I’m in the Bay Area I have my Amc like 5 minutes drive from my house. I love the new sounds system in the imax theater room. The chairs are so comfy. Like sitting at home with the best popcorn on the planet! I love AMC Theaters!

Javier Bobadilla

I watched The Super Mario Bros

I watched The Super Mario Bros. Movie at AMC Kent Station 14. I’m a AMC stubs member and had two $5 cash rewards ready to redeem. I took my girlfriend to watch this movie and we both loved it. As always, we started with a large popcorn and coke. Both were gone before the previews ended. The movie was awesome! Jack Black definitely stole the show with his performance. I highly recommend big release in IMAX or Dolby. Nothing else can match the movie experience like air conditioning, comfy seats and an amazing picture.

We also found customer reviews on TripAdvisor from people who shared their own IMAX experience at AMC:


Visited here at Christmas to see Rise of Skywalker and wanted to see the film in IMAX, having seen it previously in the UK.

The seats are more conventional than many of the recliners that have now replaced many US cinemas. But the sound design here is stunning.

The food is pricey as you have come to expect and there are not that many machines to book your tickets.

But in terms of big film event experience, the IMAX is well worth a visit. I felt as if I was watching the last Stat Wars movie for the 1st time.


Went here to see the new Batman film in IMAX. Booked ahead as guessed it would be busy and heard great reviews about the place. Cinema was awsome, full crowd and real buzz about the place when it finished. All movie experiences should be like this.
