No, it got downrezzed to 2K.

There are a number of them as far as I know, if there was a choice between 4K and 15/70, the 4K would win for Skyfall. Not for Batman 3.

I know AMC had a press release saying that they were upgrading all of their theaters to Sony 4K SXRD (LCOS) projectors. I know someone said earlier in the thread that the AMC ETX uses a 2K DLP double stack? Now personally that sounds a lot like the "Liemax" set up to me (which can also be found at AMC chains). Now the thing that has me wanting to check out the ETX screen is Dolby Atmos sound, but can anyone comment what kind of projection is actually going on with the ETX screens?
JVC DLA-RS20U D-ILA Projector || Pioneer BDP-51FD Blu-ray player || Dishnetwork DTVpal DVR || Onkyo PR-SC5508 AV Controller || Mackie HR824 MKII (LCR) , HR624 MKII (rears)

dual Chrisitie projectors - which I'm not sure are 'HFR' upgradeable.

The Tysons Corner ETX screen was upgraded to playback Dolby Atmos sound.

saw 'The Hobbit' today on a Regal RPX HFR screen - the Barco 4K projector and it's projected image was beautiful.

I live in Northern California and the closest IMAX is over 200 miles so it is not really an option for me. However I do have a Cinemark XD just 3 minutes from my house. I do enjoy it and never experienced anything wrong when it came to picture or sound. I have been to real IMAX theaters before and I would rather spend the additional ticket price on that. I'm content with the XD but I tell my wife of when I hear upcoming films like OBLIVION having actual IMAX footage in the movie we try make plans to go down to the big city to enjoy . My first job was actually being a projectionist for Cinemark so I guess subconsciously I have this connection with them. Movies are so expensive now in days that I try to only go out and see the ones I'll imagine I really like.

YES...they are upgradable.

EVERY SINGLE 2K projector on the planet of Earth is capable of playing 2K 48fps. This is called DCI Compliance.

Too bad you didn't the Hobbit in 4K. You saw in 2K on a 4K machine.

You should state that, because there is just too many people on this forum who do not understand digital projection, 2k vs 4k, 48 fps, what IMAX is, why IMAX digital is not at all a lie,.....etc etc.

I'll be seeing/hearing the Atmos mix @ AMC Tysons Corner's ETX screen next week.

I'll let you know...

speaking of the soundmix, I thought it was odd that at the beginning of the movie there were a few instances, inside Bilbo's home, where it's so quiet, that it seemed like Jackson/Howard Shore forgot to score/final sound mix those scenes, it's very weird since the music score in Fellowship, Towers and King is overly excessive at times.

+1 for Atmos curiosity!

I saw it in 15/70mm 24fps and Digital 48fps, both 3D, neither with Atmos.
Faster than a bullet from a gun. Closer to Heaven than to Earth.

2K setup: 65" Panasonic VT65, Onkyo TX-SR608 7.2, Oppo BDP-103 Region-Free, Jamo E850 fronts, E8CEN centre, E800 surrounds and rear surrounds, E8SUB subwoofer, Monster Power HTS-2600, 1TB Mediacentre, 500GB PS4, Cyron RGB LEDs. 50" VT30 and 40GB fat PS3 in the lounge.

4K setup to follow...
