This upper manhattan IMAX is the real deal - several stories of massive screen and sound. 3D is immersive and stunning.

Due to avatar there are many fake "IMAX" screens in NYC - they added a few more speakers to enhance the sound BUT the 70 foot screen (that’s right think 6th floor of most buildings) is phenomenal

People who wants to see the biggest screen of New York City must go here. With 3d of extreme quality you will thoroughly enjoy any movie here, either good or bad. You will feel like, you are in the movie. Other Imax I have heard are smaller than this. Sound quality and picture quality is superb. If any most anticipated movie of the year is releasing I don't think twice before buying a ticket because I know no other theatre will give me the enjoyment which this one will give.

So first of all, if you're wondering what Lincoln Square is behind in my estimation, here is my ranking:
1. Film Society of Lincoln Center
2. Lincoln Plaza Cinemas
3. Ziegfeld Theater
4. Lincoln Square

That Lincoln Square is behind them is not a knock on Lincoln Square necessarily - it shows more mainstream fare than what I see at the other three, and the fact that it does show mainstream movies makes it occasionally indispensable (i.e., usually I go for art-house stuff, but when I want to see a summer blockbuster, for example, I can find it at Lincoln Square).

As for the IMAX, Lincoln Square has one of the huge ones that's 10 stories high, which is cool, but it is murder getting a good seat in there. With it being SOOOO tall, if you're not in the middle or higher, you get a neck ache craning your head to see. And people get in line more than an hour before the screening to grab up the middle rows (you know, the old trick of one guy standing in line, who then ropes off 20 seats for his friends who all arrive 5 minutes before the movie begins).

So if I want to see something on a big screen, I will usually go to either the Ziegfeld, or the IMAX at AMC 25 in Times Square.

went to see The Amazing Spiderman and I'd rate this cinema on par with the London IMAX.... cleanliness could be improved,but the screen is massive and the sound fantastic.State of the Art as would be expected of an IMAX cinema. Recommended.
