Imax seemed to have the worst, with very flat bass. Example, being Avatar. There were no feel to the explosive sounds. Event cinemas seems to vary. On my first session when Avatar was first opening, it had amazing bass sending it through your chest, you'd feel in the moment. My latter sessions seem to be flat. I can't seem to get a consistent good experience at the cinema. Ive never been to a hoyts, are they better? If all else fails i'll have to spend big $$$ getting the sound i want at home.
