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.

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.
