The Differences Between Standard and Premium Large Formats

December 6th, 2019The Differences Between Standard and Premium Large Formats

Every cinephile knows that the best way to see a movie is in the theatre. It's all about the experience, from the big screens and booming sound systems, to the smell of popcorn and shared laughs or screams. Our theatres are designed specifically for moviegoers, so even standard screenings are amazing. But we also offer premium large formats (PLFs) for those who want to take their movie watching to the next level.

If you've never seen a movie in a PLF at AMC, take a look at your options and the features that make them unique.

Dolby Cinema at AMC

This PFL delivers a powerful sensory experience through dramatic imaging, moving audio and innovative seating. Bright colors are even more vibrant; dark colors are even deeper. The advanced sound system completely surrounds you with breaktaking realism, and spacious, high-powered, reserved recliners pulsate with the action on screen.

IMAX at AMC

Bigger is just the beginning in IMAX at AMC. The experience is so immersive that you'll forget you're in a theatre. The remastering process produces crystal clear images, and the perfectly tuned, integrated sound system and precise speaker orientation ensure you can hear every note. The custom-designed theatres also feature remote monitoring and real-time system adjustments.

RealD 3D at AMC

It’s seeing movies in another dimension, literally. But RealD is not your average 3D experience. The highly sophisticated screens, capable of playing 2D and 3D pictures, add amazing depth and clarity to your movie — you'll want to reach out and touch it.
