I still don't get why Kosinski didn't have the BD change to 1.78:1 for the IMAX scenes like he did with TRON: Legacy.

As I remember, the whole movie was 1.78, except the flashback bit atop the Empire State Building at the beginning. It wasn't like TRON, which switched back and forth throughout from 2.35 for the dialogue scenes to 1.43 for the action scenes.

This is correct (albeit presented at 1.90:1 for IMAX screens of course.) The black & white flashback scenes were the only scenes presented in 2.35:1.

Which part are you referring to as being 1.90? I saw Oblivion at Universal Citywalk in true IMAX, and I'm pretty sure the majority of the movie was at least 1.78, if not 1.43.

The IMAX version was finished at the IMAX digital ratio (technically 1.89:1.)

Wow, I guess you're right:

funny, I could have sworn it filled more of the CityWalk screen than that.

I'm pretty sure that for other films, they've had the wide release multiplex IMAX versions at that and the true 70mm IMAX versions at 1.43, I think TRON: LEGACY was like that, and some Christopher Nolan films, right?

The Nolan films were presented in 1.44:1 (select scenes) and show in 70mm IMAX. Tron Legacy was presented in 1.78:1 on 70mm IMAX screens and 1.89:1 in digital IMAX.
