    The Kodak OMNI THEATER, in Jersey City, NJ , the world’s largest IMAX® Dome Screen, w/ 400 seats, is a DO NOT WANT TO MISS experience. A giant 8 story domed screen with six-channel, digital wrap around sound for a great movie experience. I saw Amazing Caves and wanna see Africa- Serengeti..The sound is UNBELIEVABLE
    At first I heard sound coming from the center of the dome shaped IMAX theater..I was confused, asking myself where the sound was coming from? They gave a spotlight presentation of their sound system as the lights dimmed right before the IMAX movie. Turns out that their speakers are BEHIND the screen. 5 center spkrs etc

    Just another thing that's a short drive away, yet I never take advantage of. [​IMG] Now I'll have to get down there.

    I went there last weekend. Watched the Amazing Caves too. Yes, very impressive experience. To compare it with you own HT:
    6 channels 40 speakers 150,000 watts powered sound system to fill the world largest IMAX dome theater. Screen size? covering entire human eye's vision angle. Beats any one in the universe.
    I want to go back to watch the SolarMax.
