Games of Thrones IMAX Viewing Report

February 1st, 2015

On Saturday, January 31st, Chicago Force went to the AMC Yorktown theatre to view the special showing of Game of Thrones. Yorktown has just completed a remodel, so super plush seats and personal trays were the order of the day. We saw two episodes of Game of Thrones, The Watchers on the Wall and The Children.

These two episodes were perfect for the IMAX screen and sound. The roar of dragons and the bellowing of giants was a great experience.
