Part Of ‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’ Shot In IMAX, Why Aren’t Theaters Showing It That Way?

This was part of a planned showstopper chase sequence where Rey, Finn, and BB-8 find themselves at the controls of the Millennium Falcon as they evade a group of TIE fighters. The hashtag accompanying the tweet noted IMAX was the #bestformatever. But, if you want to see Star Wars: The Force Awakens and that special IMAX sequence, in the “best format ever,” you may be out of luck.

I hate when they do this in a way because you can tell the scenes its used and the regular versions. The imax ones extend all the way, while black bars are put on the normal scenes.
