The first time I visited an IMAX theater was during a short trip to visit my sister in Tampa, Florida at the University of South Florida campus.
- The IMAX theater is at the science center about a block away from the school.
This was about 10 years ago back when the Dark Knight Rises was released in theaters. I ended up getting too high on a cannabis edible that had something like 500 mg of THC in it. Obviously I had no idea that weed edible was so strong or I wouldn’t have eaten it. My friend bought them while he was in Colorado one summer and decided to mail them back to himself. He told me that it was only 50 mg but it ended up being 10 times that much. Needless to say, I was blasted off so far into the neighboring galaxy that I nearly lost my cool when stepping into the IMAX theater for the first time. The screen is downright intimidating if you’ve never seen one before. When the movie started, I felt like I was being dangled above a 500 foot screen. Realistically, it was only a small fraction of that size, but it was impossible to get a true sense of scale with so much THC coursing through my veins. Now that I’m living in Ann Arbor full time, I haven’t thought about an IMAX theater in years. That was until my budtender at the local cannabis dispensary told me that there is one off the I94 exit by the intersection of Ellsworth Rd and Carpenter Rd. I might just have to visit that new theater at some point when I have time away from work.
