Last weekend for Star Trek at IMAX Theater

Sounds like this one's worth a go on the big, big screen. J.J. Abrams' Star Trek shows at Pacific Science Center's Boeing IMAX Theater through Thurs., May 21. Both early birds and night owls are covered. This weekend, the first show is at 10:15 a.m. and the last movie starts one minute before midnight. Or see it at: 1 p.m., 3:45 p.m, 6:30 p.m., or 9 p.m.

Weekday May 18-21 shows are at: 2:15 p.m., 5 p.m., 7:45 p.m. and 10:30 p.m.
Tickets are $12 for adults.

There's an educational discussion about the fact that "special engagement" films like Star Trek that get shown at IMAX Theaters are not actually filmed on IMAX film and what that all means to the viewing experience going on at BoingBoing. Fascinating. To summarize, it's not the same picture quality as a trademarked IMAX film, but still plenty big and definitely loud in the IMAX Theater.

OK, who thinks they've seen this latest Star Trek incarnation the most times and where did you see it?
