Which IMAX Theater is Highest Quality?

Hey all,

Knowing IMAX theaters can vary by quality, I'm trying to figure out which is the highest of quality among these three:
- Cinemark Connecticut Post and IMAX in Milford, CT
- AMC Danbury 16 in Danbury, CT
- AMC Plainville 20 in Plainville, CT

For reference, I've also attached the inside configurations of each.. any guidance is appreciated!!

Plainville Configuration

Milford Configuration

Danbury Configuration

Not sure how much feedback you'll get on such a local specific question, but I'll play since I've at least been to one of these theaters.

The only one I've been to is Plainville. It's my preferred local cinema but the IMAX, while fine, is typical fake IMAX. The Dolby Cinema at Plainville is the better option for high quality screenings.

As for the other two, I haven't been to them, but I know Milford at least has 4k laser projection. It's the only IMAX theater in the state that has anything other than standard digital IMAX projectors.

I've never been to CT. But one thing I noticed is the Plainview location has a lot of front row seats which, to me, is nuts in an IMAX.

"If you’re gonna forget one [IMAX theatre] in Connecticut, why not forget Danbury? Because, and this is true, fuck Danbury."
