What Is RPX Movie?
Either you go to the cinemas often or not, you probably heard about the new Regal’s RPX movie format. So what is it exactly? You are not the only one asking, and we are here to explain. RPX stands for Regal Premium Experience, which is supposed to have a unique custom-built experience. Is it just a new gimmick made in order to attract people going to the cinema in the internet era, or it’s really a thing worth the time and money?
According to RPX official site, it’s using uncompressed surround sound and bright eye-popping images in 2D and RealD 3D, and should give a better quality than IMAX.
Also, the RPX cinema includes a giant screen supported by dual digital projectors.If that’s not enough, it’s equipped with brand new fancy seats with headrests.
So What's The Difference Between RPX and IMAX?
The first thing we want to say – both of the formats are way better than the regular cinema standard, and both are also more expensive. In our opinion, it is definitely worth it.
For an eye of the average watcher, there won’t be any significant or prominent difference between IMAX and RPX. the biggest difference is about the screen and the magnificent sound RPX provides.
While in IMAX you will sit closer to the screen, in PRX you’ll get bigger screen but sit further away (some will say it’s too far).
To The Question - Who To Pick?
So this question must be very individual, and each one will tell you something else. Our best tip is to try them both and then decide for yourself.
