I'm officially retiring from work on LIEMAX stuff.

The time simply isn't there for me. Thanks to everyone that participated and viewed the map. I'm shocked to find that people are still checking for it, and it's approaching 400,00 views. If anyone would like to take over the map, email me at Otherwise, you would be smart to check out LFExaminer for your IMAX info. They do good work.

Made the news in Vegas!

Craziness. Look, ma, my blog is on TV!

Wow. People are still viewing the map.

350,000 views now. I guess I should start working on it again. Has anyone seen any more updates on Gelfond's supposed review of IMAX's marketing policies?

I'm doing a crap job of keeping this updated.

My little girl was born last week, so that's a big part of it. Update soon.

Gelfond is getting it together, apparently.

IMAX May Tell Moviegoers Dimensions Of Screens

26 May 2009 2:49 AM, PDT | From Studio Briefing | See recent Studio Briefing news

Responding to the recent flap over the smaller size of IMAX screens in new locations, IMAX CEO Richard Gelfond says that he has asked a Hollywood market-research firm to determine how serious an issue the matter is. In an interview with Los Angeles Times columnist Patrick Goldstein, Gelfond says that he expects the study to determine, "Is it just a few bloggers or is there really a bigger adverse audience reaction?" Asked by Goldstein why the company doesn't simply put up a sign outside IMAX theaters specifying the size of the screen, Gelfond responded, "We're thinking about doing that kind of thing," then said more emphatically later, "We're going to do something about disclosing information. Period. The market-research survey is really just to help figure out what to do, not if we should do something."

So here's the deal on maintenance.

The wife is three weeks away from dropping that baby, and I've got a load of stuff going on in housework, meaning both the house and the lady need attention. What I plan to do is spend an hour on Sundays working on updates to the map and the blog, with map updates coming in the form of resolving disputes, and blog updates coming in the form of email feedback.

I've completed the first pass of the U.S.

If you've emailed me about a missing location or a location that needed correcting, please check the map now. I still need to put that states in order on the left toolbar, so actually zoom in on the map to find the location for now. Also, if you scroll to the bottom of the left toolbar, you'll see that there is a second page of listings. Check there, also. I will clean the toolbar up and make this thing more usable some time before morning.

If you email me about a correction, please be as specific as possible about why it needs to be fixed. Telling me I've labeled incorrectly isn't enough.

More soon.
