Closest probably BFI at Waterloo. Isn't there a train from Reading to Waterloo? Cinema is inside the roundabout outside Waterloo so about 2 or 3 minutes once you get off the train.

Book online as most shows must be fully booked already.

Excuse the 'thickness' here... Imax... why ?  (genuine enquiry)

We have one quite near.... will the new Batman movie be better if viewed in one ?

Yes, 72 minutes of the film has been shot with an IMAX camera.

I haven't heard the RX-V673, but I would expect the RX-A810 to be better. You should demo both.

See also what Rick at Musicraft says about these very same two receivers in the discussion thread "AV receiver (£400 circa) for BX2's".

By the way, if you have sold your Yamaha RX-V1800 why is it still in your signature ......?

Hi,

They will indeed. I tried to book  in early June and it was all booked up until the August 3rd and  even then the showing is at this is at 12.40. ( bearing in mind this was for middle back).
