Ignore this. Sorry. The person responsibly is going to be "taken away".
I first saw TDKR at a coventional cinema - and it was indeed, "Ooo, cool"™ - but last night I saw it again at Imax Waterloo, and it was even more 'wonderfuller' than ever
I have just seen a Blu-ray release date of December - still not seen it yet.

Bad isn't it. Blu-ray will probably be the first time I get to see it too! Not really much of a cinema person.

I saw this at the Birmingham millennium point screen, formerly known as Imax. Was underwhelmed with the picture, but the sound was better than anything I had heard before.
Not surprised. Birmingham millennium point was an IMAX screen previously, now it's just a regular cinema with a giant screen. The Dark Knight shown there is not the IMAX film, but downscaled first to allow regular screens to play it, & then re-upscaled to fit the giant Birmingham screen. Picture quality is bound to suffer.
Curiously, when I saw TDKR at at Imax Waterloo, there is an 'odd footage' moment, albeit very brief: when Wayne (Bale) and Fox (Freeman) exit the lift/elevator in Applied Sciences, their wide-shot is noticeably soft focus
Cheapest I've seen is Zavvi at £14.95, can anyone better please?
Personally I would wait either for the price drop (3-4 months probably for such a popular title) or better still for the inevitable trilogy box set.
