I didn't know there was Dolby Atmos at Town Square.  I thought it was only at the Palms and Aliente hotels.  Thanks.

Yeah, I think it is fairly new; along with the IMAX theater that they put in there. It is reserved seating, so you don't have to worry about showing up early. Honestly after 30 minutes of previews, I would probably just show up late to the movie if I were to see it again. 

One thing, if you do see it at Town Square, there isn't much room to get by people when the seats are reclined. So if you think you'll need to get up during the movie, you probably will want to sit closer to the aisle. If you don't want to deal with anyone climbing over you, I'd shoot for the middle.

Our IMAX theater has reserved seating.  It's really nice to just show up just before the movie starts and not have to fight for seats.

Reserved seating is the way to go. Especially nice when the seats are more luxurious and recline. There is another theater in Henderson, Galaxy Theaters, that are reserved seating and those chairs recline almost all the way. Their projectors aren't as nice though.

Same thing at the Orleans.  Leather recliners and reserved seating.  I went to a matinee so it wasn't crowded at all.

The IMAX seats don't recline but the seats in all the other screens do at that theater, including the DFX Atmos.

This is what all the other rooms look like at Glaxay Legends

The one thing i disklike about IMAX is that they are all only in 3D now. I don't care to wear the glasses that much. It's okay, but it wouldn't be my first choice.

It really bothered me before I got lasik.  I avoided 3D movies whenever I could.  Now I don't care either way.

Yeah, the glasses just hurt my eyes after a little while and I usually will have to take them off for a minute or two a couple times during the movie.

I had to check it out.  The Town Square uses Dolby Cinema and is not a Dolby Atmos theater.  I haven't been to a Dolby Cinema theater so that is another one I need to check out. 

The only two theaters that use Dolby Atmos are the Brenden at the Palms and Galaxy at the Cannery.  

The one @mugtang mentions is a DFX Atmos which I havent seen either.  Damnit, now I have check that out.

I think the Dolby and DFX Atmos are the same thing.  At least that's what I gathered from a quick google search. 

The Cannery mentions DFX/Dolby Atmos here, they seem to use it interchangeably

I thoroughly enjoyed Vader going full savage on the Rebel crew at the end of the movie. Unless I'm mistaken, we never got to see that type of savagery on a helpless group from him in episodes 4, 5 or 6.

I want 2D and I don't give a crap about the surround sound.  It just seems so unnatural and distracting to me.  Also, I feel weird in the theaters with recliners and food trays.  It feels gluttonous or something.  :shrug:

Furthermore I don't like puppies, free shipping, ice cream or trampolines. :P

I wish they had spent a little more time on that savagery.  Less Tarkin, more Vader!

Dolby Atmos theaters are certified by Dolby and are the most expensive sound systems to install.  There aren't many of them,  In all of Las Vegas we have two properties that have them.  DFX is not the same and is more like the XD (eXtream Digital) that I saw.  The cannery has a DFX theater and a Dolby Atmos theater combined.  That might actually be where I want to go.

Interesting.  I saw Jungle Book in DFX Dolby Atmos (which is how it's advertised here on the Dolby site) but Galaxy Theaters just calls it DFX Atmos.  I'm so confused on what to call it.  Phuck....

Rogue 1 has made a new hope way more enjoyable for this fan. Besides having luke/Han take the plans right back to the Death Star

I think you have one of those theaters that gives you the best with both DFX and Atmos in the same theater.  That is what I want to see.

Rogue One was a great Star Wars movie.  Easily better than 1-3 and possibly better than Return of the Jedi.

**SPOILERS**

Great cast.  Cool story explaining why the Death Star had such a glaring weakness, Having Tarkin appear was awesome and unexpected, Star Destroyers, X-wings and X-wing pilots from A New Hope making an appearance added to the nostalgia, Vader kicking serious ass was all great for me.  The movie had it all.
