Ok, so now there's apparantly an IMAX theater slated for PI...perhaps the old Virgin store? If you click below and click on 'coming soon', it lists Pleasure Island.

DW was reading about it on another board somewhere...although it is possible (it is adjacent to the AMC complex), it would probably make more sense for them to simply retrofit a couple of their many screens into one IMAX screen rather than take on another building. I guess it depends on what their occupancy is on the existing theaters.

That was my thought as well. And of course even though the theater is named the AMC Pleasure Island, it isn't really on the island. It's on the West Side. So even though Disney might end up spinning this like it's a positive change to Pleasure Island, it really has nothing to do with the wasteland that is Pleasure Island these days. Black 562, I'm not criticising you for posting this here. I'm just irritated with Disney because they keep pointing out things that are not on the Island and acting as though the clubs were closed to make way for those things, when clearly they were not. The Hanes T-shirt shop, the covering over the Marketplace stage, the tethered hot air balloon, and probably now the Imax . . . none of those are actually on the island. Any of them could have opened while the clubs were still open. The clubs have been replaced by. . . nothing at all. No matter how they try to spin it, that isn't good.

That is indeed the case. Even the one new thing on the island....the South/Central American restaurant....is not replacing a dance club or comedy club.

My bad... completely over-looked it.

I'm familiar with a few of the more recent imax additions to AMC theaters and they all have been retro-fitted without using new space.

If they merge two theaters into one, they'd have to change their name to AMC Pleasure Island 23.

Which would tie in with Disney's Club 23 promotion!

It's perfect!

Agreed. I don't think that people should expect this to be one of those big IMAX dome screens. When AMC adds an IMAX screen to a theater, it typically just chooses one of the larger auditoriums, installs the IMAX projector and sound system, and enlarges the screen a bit.

Across from 8TRAX, right next to the Adventurers Club.
