There's a storm coming, and it's the audiences who will be packing theaters and lining up around the block this weekend for "The Dark Knight Rises." By now, you likely already have your ticket, but if you don't, here's a little handy guide of where to go see the film in full, glorious IMAX with 70mm projection. But, wait -- why is this a big deal?

As you already know, Christopher Nolan is a big advocate of the large format, shooting some sequences in "The Dark Knight" that utilized the full scale and scope that IMAX screens have to offer. But with "The Dark Knight Rises" he's upped the ante, with about an hour of footage -- roughly a third of the running time -- going big and huge. And while the discussion of IMAX diluting their brand with their smaller, IMAX-branded theaters that are nothing like the experience of seeing it on a screen that is a true 72 feet high (let Aziz Ansari explain) is best left for another day, we're sorted out which ones offer the true, real deal screening room you'll be looking for. In short, if it's not 70mm, you're getting a 35mm or digital print.

As expected, "The Dark Knight Rises" is nothing short of a triumph -- read our spoiler-free review here -- and delivers the epic finale we've been long waiting for. So before you go this Friday, check out the list below and we'd recommend booking an IMAX ticket if there is a big screen anywhere near you.
