The digital IMAXes are still IMAX brand. When people talk about "true IMAX" they're talking about 70mm film projection, which is sadly becoming obsolete. AMC made a deal with IMAX a few years back to install digital IMAXes in a lot of their theaters, which don't project the actual 70mm film stock, and are almost universally smaller screens than the true IMAXes.

Here's some more info and screen size comparisons:

It's Amc livonia 20. I know it's on the list of theatres capable of playing the hobbit to full potential.
I just looked that theater up, and it is indeed of the digital, "LieMAX" variety. If it were real, it would say "15/70" under the "Screen Format" category.

Here's a list of where the "real" ones are:

The Hobbit was shot on digital, not 70mm film like TDKR, so I would imagine that all those digital IMAXes would indeed be capable of showing it at it's "full potential." All of this is a long-winded explanation that yeah, you should get your trailers at that digital IMAX theater no problem.
